Clem. . .I'm assuming that Mr. Gomez's reply was related to Ztechnik shields. Are you saying that not all Ztechnik screens are quantum doohickys or just that not all R1200 screens are quantum?
Not ALL of Z-Technik's wind screens are Quantum doohickys.
None of the 3 screens made for our R1200R bikes are Quantum coated.
Z-2442, Z-2443, Z-2444 are FMR coated polycarbonate.
Z-Tech's screens for the RT are Quantum coated, but I wouldn't trade bikes just for that.
I would think a clean micro-fiber rag (flannel,chamois) used ONLY for the wind screen would be better than a coarse paper towell from the gas stand. Wet it, lay it on the screen before you start filling up, by the time you're done, the bugs have softened to some degree for easier removal without abrasive force. Stuff it in a zip-lock bag and boogie. Remove tar with turpentine, then wash with warm mild dish detergent.
Hey Doc, post a photo of left-half the screen coated with paste car wax, and the right-half treated with RainZip. Curious minds want to know. In my case, small and curious.:001_tt1:
