My atv has only 200 miles on it and I have noticed that the black fenders scratch easy. I also notice the floorboards will wear when my heal and toe rests. They will shine right up with tire foam or Honda Cleaner but after a day of riding, they dull out.

mine has about 250 miles on it and I keep it up really well but like you said the black plastic is all scratched up. The only thing you can do is keep applying the tire foam to it. Personally I buy wd 40 by the cases and thats what i use after every ride on the whole bike except the yellow and it keeps it up pretty well.

I have heard people will spray WD-40, RemOil, or babyoil under the fender wells so mud/dirt will slide off. Anybody do this?

I know my plastic is gonna scratch up. I am glad I chose the yellow. Really, the black is the only plastic that is scratched up. And I am happy I didn't go with a black Rincon like my uncle. Two trips and that atv looked like it was 5 years old. Amazing.

I spray the whole underneath of my bike with it and it seems to help if you wash it as soon as you get back from the ride.

The black on my Foreman scratches a lot less than the red.Mine is an '06 with 300 miles and the red is all dull.Especially on the side of the tank where my legs rub the plastic.I'm so careful when I wash it and I even wax it.I took the racks off so I could wax it really good and that didn't help .

I used some Meguiars NXT Generation Tech Protect that I keep for my vehicles on my Foreman. This stuff made my 500 look awesome. Highly recommend it.

do you use the NXT generation on the black plastic only or the whole bike?
