I have a new 05 Goldwing and after 276 miles the tank is very scuffed up. No amount of polishing will remove it 100%. Has anyone had this problem with the paint? My 89 hasn't had any scuffing that honda spray cleaner/wax didn't remove. I was wearing clean jeans at the time.:(:(

RED I have seen the pads but have been hoping not to cover up the tank. Maybe there is a problem and that's why you see the pads in all the catalogs??

One of the guys in our regionalclub here in Cork had exactly the same problem, he has since complained to Honda and is getting a brand new tank fitted to replace the scuffed one. I think a word with Mr. Honda is definitely the way to go here.

The lacquer on the Goldwings is very soft and scuffs easily. You should ask a paint shop to try and buff/compound the marks out or you could try it yourself. You can buy clear transfer material that covers the tank sides and is practically invisible. If the transfer gets marked you can just peel it off and fit another. I forget who sells them but someone else will be able to help.

I think all the 1800 paint is soft. My 1500 after 90,000 miles never scuffed. I use Maguires Gold wax and it takes care of it. I use it once a week:jumper::jumper::jumper:
