I'm getting a lot of condensation on my tall windscreen.

Anybody have any hacks to cure that?

I'm thinking about getting a little mini squeegee that can clip to one of the arms that hold the windscreen up.

Anybody done this before/know where to get one that is small enough for that ?

Sounds like a good hack. Is condensation on both sides?

You can likely find mini squeegees at automotive stores near the area where they sell window tinting. If you get lucky, you might find one with a hole already in the handle to accommodate a tether.

The same products used on helmet visors work on windscreens.

For face shields some people use Pledge. There are other spray on / wipe on products out there and I have tried a few with minimal success. Some work great for a few days but need constant reapplication. I can't imaging they would work much better on a wind screen.

The best combo I have experienced is a Pinlock on my face shield and a windscreen low enough to see over. If you get the height just right you can see over but most the slipstream goes over your head.

I never heard about the tall windscreen fogging up like that. Mini squeeges! The problem that I experience with my tall screen is that everything fogs up: goggles and visors alike. I use a product that is not up to par either. Frequent reapplications seems to be the solution here.

Be sure that your windscreen is clean or you might end up with scratches across it. I knew someone who after constantly wiping snow off his visor with his glove ended up up with an opaque visor from all of the scratches.

Not exactly on topic but relevent
Just a heads-up (though it probably has nothing to do with your situation):
Don't use Plexus polish on windscreens, mirrors, or -- especially -- helmet visors if condensation could even remotely be a possible issue -- it fogs up much more easily and quickly than untreated plastic.

(It's great as a polish, and good on clear plastic EXCEPT when it fogs up.)

+1, cutting the windscreen is a safety issue. You should not be looking through the screen, rather over it.

Good advice. Clean first and then polish with an anti fog product of your choice. If you wanna know my secret PM's are a-okay. Razz emoticon
