Hey guys,

I was wondering if there were any real ways to cover up those little scratches in the clear coat. I have a few small scratches on my tank, but since I wash my bike every time I ride(everyday) it's starting to bug me.

Any good methods of fixing them or am I stuck with them?

Thanks in advance,
Sean

The only way to get them out, is to buff it out. Take it somewhere (detail shop), and have them buff it.

I had the same problem with mine, but I have my own buffer, and I do this once a year.

+1 for taking it to a detail shop. Cutting scratches and polishing paint takes more skill than hitting it with buffing compound. It's easy to burn the clearcoat and make swirl marks.

By the time you get a couple bottles of different polishing compounds and some buffing pads, you might as well pay $30-$50 at a detail shop for 30 minutes of work.

My 2 cents
