Yesterday while cleaning up the bike after work, I noticed a bunch of circular scartches on the rear body under the rear seat. All these tiny little scratches all over the place. Whats going on? Why does the bike scratch easily? Is it because its Fiberglass or is it because the clear coat is crap? You could only notice them in the light.Anyone have any similar problems with a new bike paint?
Buffer swirl. They're not scratches. Just swirl marks created by an orbital buffer would be my guess. A lot dealerships detail the bike before you take delivery which includes waxing it. Normally by the second or third washing the swirl marks are completely gone.
I would suggest going and getting a can of Plexus and a cloth diaper and cleaning your bike that way. Plexus is the bomb. MUCH better for your bikes paint and also leaves a protective film on the bike so dirt and grime will just come right off. It's also kick ass on your windscreen and helmet visor. Bugs are SO easy to remove. If you end up getting Plexus and you have a fogless visor do not put Plexus or any cleaner on it. Just use warm water and a paper towel. The fogless film the factory places on there will disintegrate (so to speak) from the chemicals in the cleaners.
