+1 on the Plexus. DO NOT use window cleaner and or paper towels to clean it. That will ruin it in very short order. I use an old t-shirt and the Plexus. Heard the micro-fiber towels work good too. No problems with that at all.
I have a spec1 extreme and I have that shield too.....All I do honesly is keep two soft terry cloth rags....I soak the one and just rest it on the shield when I get back from riding, that gets the bugs all soft a easy to remove and then just give it one good wipe, and then take the other terry cloth rag and just cry it really quick. Has served me good so far....
Wet paper towel will not hurt it... They do however only last a season or two though. They get pitted from road debris just like any other shield but you have to remember that the iridium coating is on the outside of the shield, so when debris hits the shield, it hits the coating first.
I have one for my helmet. Clear for night driving and the Iridium for the day. All I use is a wet paper towel flicked in under the hot water tap for a second and wipe clean. Looks great except for the scratches occured when someone knocked it over on the ground.
I have a Arai Astral X with the Chrome shield and the shield holds up well but if anything even knicks (sp) it you can definetly see it on the inside looking out. As for my shoei Rf1000 iridum shield is awesome had rocks straight up dink me in the face and don't have a scratch on it yet. As for cleaning warm paper towel and a little scrubbing to get the bug guts off
