06 tank as purchased from ebay vendor:



Tank after my polish treatment:



I used a foam polishing wheel, wool buffing wheel, low speed drill for the wheels, rubbing compound, polishing compound, and finally two coats of Honda Glare which were buffed out with micro-fiber polishing cloths on an orbital polisher. Approx. time= 2 hours.

YMMV

I have a Red 2011 and the paint appears quite scratched already, in fact i am very unimpressed with the durability of the paint finish on this bike. My last bike (Honda) looked like new after 5 years, my triple looks like its 5 years old after 2 months.:mad:

I used some Halfords colour restorer on a buffer, be careful on the edges or you will go through.
