Does anyone have any tricks or insights on HOW to get black scuffs/marks off the body (fenders, under edges, etc.) on the Pearl White paint surface on a 2012 Burgman 400???

Please help a newbie ASAP.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to leave your comments here.

If it's the black plastic that shows, it must be repainted as the scratches are too deep to polish off.

Understood, but what about the black obstinate scuffs that don't want to come off willingly!?!

What kind are those scuffs, is it resin marks, abrasion or other kind.

I too have noticed occasional scuff marks in particular on the side panels from just below the Burgman 650 lettering to the area right above the passenger foot boards. The first time was when I used my Givi saddlebags which seemed to rub up against the panels. But even without them on it seems dirt & grime gets on there and despite using the plastic polish (Plexus, Pledge, Honda polish, etc) and even letting it soak on it, it's still so resistant to coming off that only a strong amount of elbow grease pressure mutes it somewhat. What gives?

You seem to look for a tar remover. Of course as with any such stuff it's too religious to discuss brands, but me believes a lot of them will do the job just fine.

Had the same problem on my old bike. thing is that shoe polish is wax. So i would just rub it of with an old hand towel. pledge might work too as it is self cleaning wax. good luck...always ride safe...scooter 68

It can be just tar, something that transferred from a shoe, or something else that rubbed up next to it. I was just wondering if there was a really good "Go-to" product out there on the market to have on hand.

Thanks for your help folks!!!

I've had pretty good results with WD-40.

Many years ago I started out with nothing; still have most of it left.
