Headlight Lens Cleaner

The lens on my bike is very cloudy and unappealing to look at. What can I do to clear it up and bring back that clean look it once had?? Any waxes, cleaners, something lying around the house???

There are several companies like this one that offer kits to clear up your lens. I've used them on customers cars a few times with varying results. I've never used this brand system, but the two others I've used were virtually identical so I would imagine they're all pretty much the same. There are various chemicals, some prep work and some finish work. Depending on the amount of damage to the lens you'll see varying degrees of success, and my experience tells me that this is a temporary fix. We've done this on cars that fail state inspection due to the clouded lens, and in both cases that I can remember specifically seeing the cars again the next year for state inspection they failed again for the same concern.

It's cheap enough if you do it yourself though, so I'd say it's worth a shot.
