Scratches are going to happen on a motorcycle, there’s just no way around it unless no one ever sits on it. The tank is an interface point so you can either repair scratches as they appear or use some kind of pad or cover to take the abuse instead. If you are like me and hate the look of such things, you just have to fix stuff up every now and then. Usually you’ll find light scratches in this area – and watch everything you are wearings for anything hard to prevent them in the first place. Work gentle to aggressive, only going as harsh as needed to make the repair.
