    Scratch removal products are in high demand as people usually cannot afford a repaint..ALso the stock paint quality is unmatched and you cannot achieve the same paint quality as Factory's..Many people consider Formula one scratch out as a viable option..But there are ways to apply a light abrasive polish..Never ever use extra force while rubbing formula one paste on scratch..It can eat up the Bike's clear coat thus rendering your paint exposed to degradation..I wont advise formula one as a premium product..I prefer Turtle Wax Scratch and Swirl remover as a suitable and safe product..Also if you can afford; Meguiars and Mothers range of detailing/car care products are the best but costs a small fortune..Armorall car shampoo is by far the best cost effective shampoo you can use for washing your ride..

    Also if you have any detailing query please feel free to post..

    when i asked to MR.MARGALLAR(car care and detailing member) about bike detailing he recommended this

    4 this i m thankful to him


    well it is very simple, wash your bike using car shampoo, armorall or turtle ice shampoos are good, they will be more like a one time investment since it takes so little shampoo to do a bike. you shud get some turtle presoak to clean grease and oil from the engine bay area at the washing stage.

    after that you shud just wax it, id suggest turtle hard shell wax (basically it's dirty cheap and it offers some protection, though if you can afford get a tin of meguiars gold class, it's the best for long term use, one tin costs around 2300, but will last you around 1.5 years, and it will give the best shine. give the paint a wipe with a damp cloth after waxing to prevent dust attraction.

    for plastic you shud use stp son of a gun dash protectant. spray it at night and massage it with a soft cloth. the next day just give it a light massage with a damp cloth so it doesnt catch dust (it is oily), avoid using it on ragzine seats as it will make the seat slippery.

    get a tin of brasso and put a small amount on a soft cloth and give all the chrome and the engine block a light rubbing.

    do all this when the bike is cool and in the shade. if this routine is followed the bike will look just like new for years to come. the products i suggested may seem costly but are a one time investment, they will last around 1.5 years.

    For matte black i found Review-All a perfect wax/polish it removes all the stains and scratches on it. Secondly as you said that there are spots/stains after refilling fuel in tank then i think the color quality is low. You should repaint it with some expert painter. There you can see the pics taken after wax:
