Has anyone else noticed that the paint is really easy to mark?
Although its flat shiny and lovely on the black and red the black is a nightmare!!
I used the back of my index finger to check how well the dealers had polished it and it left (very small admittedly) scratch marks in the laquer. :eek:
Straight home got out the hand glaze and autoglym super resin and polished them out. I would post a pic of my results but forgot to take in low res but needless to say its super shiny ;)

I did notice the excellent flat finish (for a mass product) and haven't seen it mark easily as yet. I rolled / picked off the idiot labels with my finger nail before removing the residue with some IPA and expected to mark the top coat but didn't.

i used to have a gloss black bike and every time i run the cloth over when cleaning it would leave little scratch like marks in the paint, the blue one is probably the same but it doesn't show it.

I did notice some faint marks after removing the stupid labels with hair dryer, finger nails & white spirit, not bad and they have almost polished out with Auto-Glym paint restorer & then the resin finish.

I've found a really good finishing spray for the black/red. I picked up a bottle of OCDfinish detailing spray from Ford fair and gave the bike a once over not expecting anything too good but tickle my plums it removed all the swirls and was good for removing dead flies as well. I'll post a pic tomorrow if it comes out ok, my tank looks new and feels like glass.
