I've taken care of the dash panel as well as it can be done..nobody has taken better care of it than I have and still there is fine scratches in the plastic that really only can been seen with the sun behind you...and then it looks like crap...Honda needs to change the material that the dash panel is made from to a more durable material...this dash panel scratches with just normal cleaning.You may want to read the section on how to care for your Wing in the Owner's Manual. The path is Owner's Manual > index > caring for your m/c > interment panel.
In there it says how to wash and care for it.
You are probably correct. In the mean time, Honda, in their Owner's Manual, is pretty much saying that "normal cleaning" is not good enough and special care is required.Honda needs to change the material that the dash panel is made from to a more durable material...this dash panel scratches with just normal cleaning.
My ignorance is profound. All the web and YouTube information says how you approach it is dependent on what the material is made of and that some approaches can damage the plastic further, so before I do anything, I've got to know what type of plastic it is.NOT PERSONAL EXPERIENCE...but, I've seen many posts here about how well Pledge removes light scratching in windshields? Maybe also for this?
I'm thinking that's correct. Honda says there's a special coating on it. Any attempt to buff out the scratches would doubtless damage that coating. I'm wondering if the fine scratches people see are micro scratches in that special coating.I would just clean it with a clean soft microfiber towel using Plexus.
I’m guessing any attempt to remove or buff out the scratches will be a losing battle.
