I have a 2012 Black GL1800 and it seems to be one giant bug killing machine. the problem is I use this as a daily driver and unless I wash it every day it seems that I get dead bodies stuck all over my wing soaking them even in Honda pro cleaner doesn't get them off. short of wet sanding and polishing I am not sure what to do to restore the finish. any suggestions short of replacing the upper cowl every so often. there must be a product that works, one to remove the dead bodies and two prevent the acids from etching the paint.
any ideas thanks.

Put a bra on to protect the fairing I think Wing Stuff has them.

Bug removal

Use a damp sheet of Bounce, used when drying clothes to prevent static cling, and the bugs will disapear. In Florida, during love-bug season, I carry Bounce in my tank pouch and at every gas stop I use the Bounce and clean my Wing. Hope it helps.
Ride Safe,

I use a soaker rag and a mild solution of hot water and dish soap for lifting the bugs. Pledge or Honda spay polish and a buffing cloth does the rest. Right now there are so many clouds of the little varmints that I don't get real carried away with the front end on a daily basis, just the w/s and visor mostly.

Thanks for the input I will use everybody's advise I am also going to have the upper cowl wrapped so if anything gets damaged it won't be the paint

Well the bra is out for now as Wing Stuff does not sell one yet for the 2012 the Upper cowl Garnish only cost $241 so If it gets trashed so be it I will try some of the products that were mentioned on this thread Thanks guys.
