Just did a front brake pad replacement job on my 91 Silver K75.When I took i out for a checkout ride some brake fluid apparently got on the right saddlebag/pannier.  Before I start repainting the saddlebags  I thought to ask if anyone has ever had to clean brake fluid off of the plastic bits, ie saddlebags. And how did you do it and how did it go?

Water. A lot of water - preferably from a hosepipe. If the paint isn't showing signs of lifting just yet then you may be lucky and save it. Decades ago I got into the habit of 'fixing the brakes - hose the bike down just in case'.

 Did that. But it's the plastic saddlebags/panniers that got some streaks on it. Well as well as the windscreen. The windscreen doesn't matter particularly as it is painted black.

Did find a spray for vinyl and fabric that I will try.
