I've only have my 10 a few weeks and today I noticed a tiny bit of paint on the corner of my seat cowl has work through right on the corner :(

I use my bike everyday and this is where I have sometimes skimmed it with my leg getting on and off. I know it's gonna get marks and what not as it's used daily, but it's still annoying.

Is it possible to get those little touch up bottles with the small brush for the Kawasaki lime green. Or would I only make things worse?

I used to be a freak about my vehicles being perfect but it's gets tiring. I'd personally leave it till off season and fix everything at once. Don't forget to do a nice wax job as it'll offer some protection.

Ahh.. happens to the best of us...

Don't sweat it; try to look at the big picture: imagine dropping it for the first time!! Yikes! All a matter of being careful at all times with all manner of usage... Best of luck.

First summer I had the 08 a rock busted my radiator. $1000 later reinstalled new with Rad guard. Then some high speed passes got some rock chips in the front. Then droped it at the gas station:wink:. Now I see the rear has a mark from me carrying a helmet on the side of the bike at 150. 20,000 miles later she still looks new at 189:mrgreen:

I keep the bike well maintained and clean but I ride to much to fix all the nicks and scratches. I think the scars add character. I used touch up paint it did not match.:eek:ccasion1

Bikes are for riding not for looking pretty

I stopped caring about little things after I tore all my fairings to crap on my first track day.

My bikes have always been for riding... and looking good, hence all the bits I put on. But I use it everyday come rain or shine, so I know it wasn't gonna stay prestine. Still annoying though!
