Not exactly a tech question but...

I have a few scratches on the tank of my '06 R6 (yellow). I'd say the area that is scratched is maybe 3/4" wide and about 2-3" long. Most of the scratches look to be only the clear coat, but there are 2 or so that are fairly wide and deep.

They aren't anything major but it is my baby and I like to keep it looking as good as possible. I don't need a professional paint the entire tank kind of deal just something so I'll stop staring at the scratches and so the average person won't notice them unless they look real close.

Does anybody have any suggestions or recommendation for anybody in the area that could do this? I'll try and snap a shot or two in the morning. Thanks in advance for the help.

Try hitting them with some rubbing compound.

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

rubbing compound and maybe the polishing wheel on a dremel tool. Make sure the compound you use is approved for your clearcoat, though.
