I'll chime in here with a good guess.

I assume plastic. Get a plastic windshield cleaner, can buy at motorcycle shops. Will remove any fine scratches.

Most important-never paper towels. Always use a nice soft cloth. Anything paper will eventually scratch your canopy.

I just use either Invisible Glass, glass cleaner or 210 Plastic Polish.

They both work great, and since it is an 02, they look as good today as they did when new.

Downtown42 is correct, I have a friend that used paper towels on his, and we spent many hours polishing the scratches out.
