over the weekend I was riding my z and I was riding alot of steep hills. alot of them I could take no problem. but one was a bit to steep for my skill. so I tried anyways, about half way up I just couldn't make it. so I tried to go back down and rolled the z once. nothing on the bike was hurt. but the hill was really rocky and my plastic on my back fenders got scratched pretty good. so if anyone knows any tricks to make the scratches not so noticable or deep it would be greatly appreaciated

whoa beavis, unless you have skills with a blow torch, i would avoid that option. you'll make it worse than it was.

You can run a razor blade perpendicular to the surface and it will help clean up the scratches. This works very well and many dealerships do this to spare the cost of new plastics on used bikes.

If you mess up your fronts and decide to get new ones let me know. I am looking for a used front piece.
