Just thought I might add this thread to you all regarding paint peeling on the green lower fairings.

To prevent any additional peeling, coat the affected area with ladies clear nail varnish (or men's if you are that way inclined!;) ;) ;) ) I have been given this tip by a paint specialist who paints racing cars and has a very good reputation. Nail varnish prevents additional peeling and consolidates the rest of the area. It is waterproof and will only come off if you use nail varnish remover. I have done this on my own bike and found that it works a treat and it only cost £1.00:D

i was wondering about that as i have some slight peeling starting to occur , is the idea to sort of glue the peeling bit down with the varnish and thn paint the transition between green and black ? mine has a light bubble / lift but the paint is still there , i was just going to glue it back down if that would work do you know ?

Crikey thats digging up the ghosts of 2006!!:confused:

If your bike is within warranty (2 years) you can get replacement panels. A local dealer swapped my red one on my old bike.

Otherwise with nail varnish and glue your prolonging the inevitable really. The paint doesn't stick to the panels, every time you remove them for a service they'll get worse as they flex.:(

nah its an 09 model , and to be honest , the peeling isnt too bad , just abit on the leading edge but only just starting and theres abit on the indent just behind the lowest vent, ive come to terms with getting it resprayed at some point , but id like to just sort of hold it at bay and stop the bubble from cracking off because at the moment only i have noticed it !
