    On my new bike there use to be a sticker on the windshield and it was removed and it left glue.

    Does any one have any idea how to remove with out hurting or scratching the Lexan windshield .

    Thank you Ridge

    If you can get it warm enough with a blow dry it should roll right off. Then work on it with the glass cleaner.

    Goo gone will work, but not sure about the effects on lexan.

    I know a foaming glass cleaner will work, as I used to be in the glass business, and that's how we removed stickers. Spray soak and should wipe off.

    I had a "rocket scientist" security guard put one of those orange stickers (that are supposed to go on car windows) on the brand new paint job on my Dyna when I had parked on the sidewalk at the mall. I was very angry at the lack of consideration from the security group there. "Oh well!"

    But I did what the previous poster suggested. Soaked a rag in WD40 and put that over the sticker. In just a short time, the sticker, glue et al slid off nicely with nothing left behind!!

    TQ

    Tried google - remove glue lexan.

    There were a few products listed that claim they are safe for lexan. Price range $15-$20.

    No luck with soap an warm water or WD40

    Maybe warm air will heat the glue enough to remove.
    I don't know. Something must work.
