Sandpaper the fenders

Recommended Posts

My drz have some little scratches, some sandpaper will remove the scratches or no?

I want to know before I buy a new one.

It will remove the scratches but you will never get back the factory "shine" that your fender has no matter how much polishing you do.

Yes, sandpaper will remove scratches but you will then have a sandpaper finish. It is very hard to restore the hi-gloss original finish on plastic fenders. I recommend you first practice on some throw-a-way parts.

When my DRZ's were new I replaced the OEM plastics with cheap set from ebay and fitted 3.2g IMS tanks....

When I sell ,I'll put the new condition OEM stuff back on...

I know this doesn't help with your issue, but something for yourself and others to keep in mind for future bikes...
