LCD Display

I wasn't the owner of my FJR from mile 0, so naturally it has a minor scratch or two here and there being a used bike.....I noticed some minor imperfections in the LCD display cover...not a big deal at all for most people, but I'm leaned towards the OCD side of the spectrum with things like this. Anyone know if theres a good polish/spray to use on the dash cover? I know this kind of thing can be a slippery slope and you can end up ruining it if you don't use the proper stuff. So far the only idea I have is Meguiars Plast X...but I certainly would rather have it like it is now rather than make it worse....

I would leave it, as it is plastic it is very difficult to remove scratches with it in place. Just wash with plenty of water and dry carefully.

Haha. I also saw that it seems to be one piece with the dash attached if I'm correct. So you cant just order a new cover...*eye roll*
EDIT: I guess you can but it's $250

What is "Minor imperfections"? Scratches, nicks, blotches, cracks,melted area, discoloration, fading? That could change what you will do drastically.

Scratches can be "removed" with Novus #2 and elbow grease.... to a point. All those plastic polishes with a fine grit in them are really just smoothing them out. Follow up with Novus #1. Novus #2 is quite fine, can even scrub out minor stuff in your paint job.

Minor swirl marks... plus on the right side display it has the look like a mild spray of some solvent hit it at some point. These are minor, but I’d feel warm and fuzzy inside if i could improve it.

Will try it! Looks like a couple people on amazon have actually used it on motorcycle displays already...
