I have some guy coming to possibly buy my 01 426. I bought some new fenders to clean it up (polisport) and they have to be the dullest plastic I've ever seen. I'm almost tempted to put the scratched up stockers back on. I tried wd40 and it turns all hazy after awhile . Any suggestions? :naughty:

You could try some clear coat, but it will begin to chip fairly quickly. Sand them with VERY, VERY, VERY (did I say very?) fine sandpaper first. The plastic looks like crap after two rides anyway.

You can try PC Racing Plastic Renew. But it works the same way - you have to put additional layers of this shit to fenders every two or three motos.

Hit the faded spots very lightly with a propane torch. Use a quick hand with the flame tip about four inches away from the plastic. You will see the oils pull up to the surface and sheen over. Don't over do it though. When it cools buff with lemon pledge. Believe me, this works. Don't do a plastic gas tank :naughty:
