I had a Raptor and if the plastic bent it would turn white. How does the KFX plastic work?

Depends on how it bends.......a buddy rolled his KFX a couple of times, and you can see where the rear fenders bent. It turned it a lighter shade of green.

Thanks, that was what I was afraid of. I had both colors of 400ex's and bent the plastic hard without any spots. You still can't beat the green color, though.

If you do bend the plastic and get the white discoloration...I have never tried it, but some guys have told me to heat up the plastic with a torch and do some bending and it will turn it back....but like I said, i have never tried it...but if it works, its sweet

Keep mud off the rear fenders too. I had to have Kawi replace my rear fenders under warranty b/c the bars holding the rear fenders bent and broke which caused the bar holder on the underside of the fenders to break off. I had them replaced but they're starting to do it again. Might be trading it to end the whole ordeal.

Heat gun works pretty good for minor stuff BUT be careful cause you can do heat damage like melt, burn off shiney finish, etc.. Heat gun also works great after you cut fenders to blend in, soften the cut edges. Just don't over do it with the heat.
