It could be that or that they are stained with dirt. WD 40 can stain, as it penetrates.

Try out some Pledge wipes on the plastics. It works. My riding buddies are always jealous of my beautiful clean bike. :bonk:

I would say WD40 will stain white over time. I clean my plastics with simple green but I spray wd40 on the bottom of the fenders right before I ride, which makes the dirt/mud fall off instead of having to scrape it off between motos.
