Clay bar & Plastic

Can you clay bar fairings and windscreens? Or what works best on plastic and carbon fiber?

I wouldn't use it. But if you want to try, you use more clay lubricant. It is easy to put swirls on the plastics. Motorcycles paint/clear is usually on the softer side(from what I have seen).

Well most of the cars are now plastic so it should be fine. But i would look into what to do with the carbon fiber

It works well for plastics, I recently removed a bunch of paint overspray from the front spoiler of a BMW M6.

It is easy to scratch the paint, make sure you clean as much as you can first, then wet the out of the clay. Make sure that there is a vacuum between the clay and the surface so the particles don't stick to the clay, but get pushed off the surface.

STOP!
If you hear a scratchy sound. That is the sound of the paint being scratched.

If you mess it up, buffing will only do so much.

I would say go ahead for carbon fiber, I've never clayed it, but I've buffed a few hoods and roofs so have a general idea of the surface properties. It works like the clear coat on regular paint.

I recommend applying Seal-It after cleaning.
