Preparation is everything with this product. If you do a half-hearted job at preparing your plastics, it shows. Sand the plastic with increasingly finer grits of sandpaper up to 1000 grit, and THEN apply. I've been using it on my black plastics for a few years now. I reapply it once a year when I rebuild my quad for the next race season. It makes even my black fenders look like new. Washing it with mild detergents will make it last a lot longer. In the beginning, I used a motorcycle specific cleaner on it that gave it a bluish white haze after only a couple of washes. Now, I wash it with a good quality car wash soap and shine it up at the track with Windex.

Works Good. Buffing with the included steel wool makes it shine even better. The sand paper included will go a long ways.
This product is amazing worked great on my 96 rm250 made it look brand new.
Agree with the other guy who wrote a review as well, Works "ok" nothing great but just my 2cents...I'd just use some regular polish and wait then buy new fenders when they are completly thrashed.
I have an 05 CRF250R and Plastic Renew makes the bike look, well, "Re-newed" every time I apply it. I don't know about other bikes but on my Red 250R it's fantastic. Almost a MUST-OWN product.
Your plastic will look nice for a while and then re-coating is necessary
Essentialy this product is a clear lacquer made to put on plastic. It will give you an ok shine after sanding, but it is a shine that looks just like lacquer, not new plastic. In my opinion, if you plastic is seriously scratched save your money and buy a new fender.
It gives decent results, but it requires you to sand your plastic. It eventually wears off, requiring more applications, and when it wears off, your plastic doesn't look very good. It does look good for a while though, if you don't mind re-applying every so often.
Plastic Renew is a great product for restoring your Bike or ATV. I have been restoring my 89 RM 250 and it looks like new. No one can believe it’s a bike from the 80’s. The only down side is that the kit dose not supply enough sand paper for severe applications, luckily sand paper is cheap. If your serious about making your bike look new and you have the time this stuff is no joke, or even if you want to give your bike a quick shine this product is for you.
• Complete kit includes sand paper, steel wool, Plastic Renew chemical, and applicator towel.
