Re: Can you buff out scratches on fairings?
Not sure on your bike, but my 08 Liquid Silver and 05 Blue are painted. Same as a car. I've buffed, polished, and waxed both. Only thing I can't polish on my 08 is the pieces that are matte silver (cover in front of tank and mid fairings).
And for what it's worth, I've been detailing for 8+ years and recently quit working in the auto body industry (painters helper).
[EDIT]And I dunno how you can tell from the pics what the scratches actually are. Pretty dark and low quality pics FTL. But when you scratch clear coat, it appears dry, just like if you sanded it. Over black base coat, it will appear white. It also looks like it could be paint transfer. All of which I doubt. But possible, and hard to state just from pics.
