    If it's a black chin fairing... 240 on a DA sander, then 320, 400, 3M Rubbing compound, then 3M Finesse it, then wax:UP:
    Haha.

    My wheels aren't powder coated, but just painted I believe. I use some cheap Turtle Wax T311 Wheel Cleaner. It is foamy and dissolves brake dust very well. Still had to scrub with a plastic brush though. I just bought a 06 uly and I swear to god the rear wheel has never been cleaned in 20k miles. This stuff made it pretty easy to clean.

    Mine was not $24. It was less than $10. Idk what Amazon is doing.

    Put this on instead of wax,

    They use it on the hulls of boats, it's detergent proof and really makes dark colors look good. It's used at the detail shops on the upper end cars. Don't get the paste, get the liquid and you must strip off all of the old wax, so wash it with a wax stripper.

    Have fun !

    It is a black chin fairing! How did you know?

    I've been trying to pick up different colored plastics for my bike. Most of the ones I've been getting have had minor damage (like my black chin fairing). The plan is to spend a day and polish out all of the scratches on all of them in one go.
