This is non-V4 related however the combined knowledge on here about paintwork seems to be second to none... hopefully the answers might be useful to people with similar VF touch-ups though! I recently bought this VTR1000 to use as a daily rider. I wanted something I can use ever day without worrying too much about keeping things perfectly clean, and to save the VF500 from the wet. This came up at a good price and I've not had a V-Twin before so decided to give it a go. It's been pretty well looked after but at some point in it's life has had a pretty hefty scratch put on the rear cowl. Firstly, is this too big an area to be considering a touch up pen on? If not has anyone got any advice on how to get the best results? Would I need to try and sand it back in between coats of primer/colour/clear or is flattening it best dealt with after? Any help as always hugely appreciated!
