How do you keep them sparkling and new...the outside I mean.

Do you polish it like you polish the bike?

Or just wipe it with a damp towel?

Yeah. Not everytime, but occasionally. If I really want a nice shine, I'll wax it. I have a Shoei RF1000 which has a thick clearcoat on it for reference. For quick cleaning of bugs, a damp towel will do the trick. If the bugs are encrusted on there, a damp warm towel over the entire helmet over a few minutes time will defossilize those bugs.

what about Zaino car polish?

this one doesn't damage the black plastic bumpers on cars... do you think it'd be safe?

Honda plastic cleaner and polish works well.

Wipe down really good with a hot, wet rag. Then spray down with Honda polish and wipe off. Then, put on a coat of crystal-glo and wipe off. The finish will amaze you. I only do the crystal-glo polish 1 or 2 times a year.

I just a damp towel to get the bugs and stuff off, then I wax it using Zymoil or Meguires. Leaves a nice shine and it also make it easier to get the bugs off next time around.

Does any of that stuff wreck the visor? I used something (can't remember what, of course) I thought was mild, but it totoally wrecked my visor. Who knows, maybe it was just a shitty visor. :)

A lot of commercial waxes contain solvents which can damage 'soft' plastic, which the visor is considered to be. You're also not supposed to use the Rain-X anti fog on plastic because it can permenantly haze it.
