Ok.... i'll beat everyone to the punch, i'm an idiot who should be beaten and have my keys taken away.... the plus side is i learned my lesson and will be carrying a microfiber cloth with me where ever i go...

now for the issue. the other day while gassing up i had a little bit of over-splash. since leaving gas on a painted surface is bad i thought ok i'll wipe it up using a paper towel from the dispenser (insert ridiculing and cringing comments here). i went on about my business and then came home. well today i was out pulling decals, badges and reflectors off my bike when i looked at the tank and saw a handful of small surface scratches. i though it was from the rubbing and the microfiber, then it dawned on me..... the paper towel. so as i said i have learned my lesson, but what is the best process / product to use for buffing out small surface scratches on my tank (hardly noticeable unless the light hits it JUST right)?

Don't know,
I have the matte silver. No scratches.
I would think you could buff it out with no problem.

Order System 51 Toll Free 866-533-0801 it is awsome bike, car, anything works great with a micro fiber towel for small stuff, will remove all swirls in the most custom paint job but be carful with a power buffer unless you are real good it does contain a cutting agent, I will swear by this stuff..:D this is a pro product not for backyard guy with a craftsman buffer and a few beers lol....

Any brand name cleaner wax like Meguires will remove light scratches without a problem, no fancy voodoo needed.

Just my experience but were they showing in the sunlight or underneith a garage light???? Most micro scratches on previous bikes from dirty micro fiber towels have only showed under florescent lights and not the actual sunlight itself. I know they still drive you crazy and have to buffed out but just wondering???

I used Meguires scratch x for a long time, but was not impressed with the outcome. NuFinnish Scratch Doctor is the best I've found. Really does get rid of small clear coat scratches.

Yeah this thread is old but it looked like the right place.

While doing yard work last weekend, I noticed a big grasshopper on my fury fuel tank. Hey get off of there! In attempting to wave him off, two fingertips of that dirty glove made contact. D'oh! I had just given my bike its first scratches after 17 months of care!

I had used Turtle wax rubbing compound in the past on a different bike and found it to be too aggressive. Ended up with a dull spot that was hard to recover.

So this time I tried Scratch-X 2.0 for the first time and was very impressed. It was gentle enough to go slow and careful, but effective and maintained a nice gloss. Of course I followed up with some Meguiar's GoldClass wax.

If my brain had been engaged I would have thought to take before and after pics.
