Be aware that there were a couple of threads a while back about damage to the plastics on the R and dealers appearing to quibble over warranty claims if Muc-off had been used. For example...

I have no beef with Muc-off or experience of damaged plastics, just putting this out there for members who werenít around at the time.

Never had a problem myself using Muc off on all my bikes, the panels on the thread are matte plastic though and have no paint?

I canít really add any useful insight, unfortunately, as I have no experience of the product or the problem. I can only highlight that there was talk of dealers blaming Muc-off for problems with the finish a while back. There doesnít seem to have been any recent chatter about this, so maybe it was a batch issue or there were other causal factors  :027:

Muc-off is pretty decent but I use SDoc100 - more expensive but much better - the thing with MuC-off is to spray, agitate and rinse it off - itís when you leave it on - it does tend to stain and can take off the painted finish off metal fittings (eg dark coloured bolts on Jap bikes) - but as an all rounder not bad

I had a panel replaced under warranty on a 2014 bike and have never used Muc Off.
One way of diverting the blame for sub standard parts,point the finger at someone else.
