Kawasaki Ninja Owners Manual / Maintenance and adjustment / Cleaning Your Motorcycle / Windshield and Other Plastic Parts

After washing use a soft cloth to gently dry plastic parts. When dry, treat the windshield, headlight lens, and other nonpainted plastic parts with an approved plastic cleaner/polisher product.

Plastic parts may deteriorate and break if they come in contact with chemical substances or household cleaning products such as gasoline, brake fluid, window cleaners, thread-locking agents, or other harsh chemicals.

If a plastic part comes in contact with any harsh chemical substance, wash it off immediately with water and a mild neutral detergent, and then inspect for damage. Avoid using abrasive pads or brushes to clean plastic parts, as they will damage the part’s finish.
