Probably don't have it around the house but I like Plexus. It's made for such things. Pick up a spray can at your dealer.

yeah i've heard of plexus, i hear its good on all the plastic parts on a bike. on the other hand windex does seem to work pretty good, i have even used it on my leather jacket and it takes bug guts off really easily.

Using an old Windex bottle I filled it with one drop dishwashing soap and water. Spray after a ride and wipe off and its good as new. No need to bother with the chemicals.

I use windex all the time. Honda cleaner works well too.

windex works, as stated above, spray wax works pretty good to with a micro fiber rag. I used that for a long time

What I do is when my helmet or bike is dirty I clean is with soapy water then I wipe it down lightly with a cloth wet with rubbing alcohol and then apply a coat of RainX. For a good month everything including bugs, grease, or tar comes off very easy with soapy water and it is a great protectant otherwise and if you end up riding in the rain the water sheets right off of your visor. Also RainX makes a product for anti-fog that I put on the inside of my visor and my motocross goggles and it works wonders against fogging up. just my $0.02.....

using windex to clean your visor is a bad idea! windex is ammonium-based which WILL make your visor opaque over time! soapy water is more than enough to clean a visor!

they use ammonia for fragrance! ammonia will cause visors to get an opaque quality, makes it cloudy after several uses!
