They make a plastic renew product, the problem is is looks good at first but then starts to wear of in patches and looks like crap unless you take time to re-apply it! Plus if you get any gas on it at all it takes it right off
I agree, plastic renew works good on fenders, shrouds and number plates, but not on gas tanks!! it's tough to get scratches out of tanks, if you find a way, let us know

this technique can also be used to remove white 'stretch marks' from having bent your plastics.
along with this info, i was told that an outdoor furnture oil ( in australia it's called o cedar $5.99 in a trigger pack)) will bring up a very good finish.
hope it works or has been of help.
i ride my bike, and the scratches and white bent bits are what happen when you use it as it was intended. i will try these things when i go to sell it. until then it stays scratched but well ridden.

Scratches? It's a f ing off road bike. Sorry but I would rather spend my time putting scratches on the bike than spending time trying to remove them.
Thanks for that response. You took the words right out of my mouth.

Many of the hardware stores sell plastic polish and cleaner. That stuff works very well on sunglasses and motorcycle parts.

of course you'll need to finsh up with lesser grit polish.
BTW, I have to agree with the other boys, it's an offroad bike
