I stupidly wiped some dirt off of my tank and seat cowl last night in the dark without washing it first. I then noticed this morning that it’s covered in light scratches.

I’ve ordered some maguires scratch x to try and rub them out. I don’t think they are through the clear coat but very annoying. Does anyone have any other tips?

The whole tank and seat cowl are covered in them. I’ve only had it a week 😭😭
Been using Muc-Off Miracle Shine just recently on the fuel tank after each wash. Leaves a really deep shine. Think it may help to remove light surface scratches.

What about the guys with mat painted motorcycles? The dealer told me it was easy to maintain with just water and maybe mild soap.
And obviously never polish it..
So I'm hoping in reality it is as easy as the dealer claims..
I use Autosol shampoo and separate spray on wax for matt paint. Cleans the bike well enough and maintains the water repelling properties of the original paint coating, but of course keeps the matt paint look.
