How to clean matt white helmet
« on: May 02, 2019, 12:11:59 PM »
Went on a ride and after coming home i cleaned my SHOEI helmet a few hours later from all the bug mess. In two places where the helmet is matt white there are yellow stains that refuse to go away. Any advice? See pic

Have you tried washing up liquid and water?  If that doeskin work, maybe ask the place you bought it from.

I would try a wet wipe (baby wipe) as they are generally soft and neutral chemically. :084:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

I use Nanolex matte paint cleaner and sealant on my matte blue Tiger 800 XRT.
It isn't cheap, but I'm likely to use quite a lot, whereas it's probably overkill for a helmet.

Gave it another go now with baby wipes. Maybe it helped a little. Will see tomorrow with better light. Nanolex... dont think my eye caught it somewhere in this part of the world. Thank you for the replies!
