Hello,
I have an '07 DX (love it) but am noticing small paint issues.

1. Left engine cover paint flaking around derby cover (inside edges).
2. Derby cover bar and shield bubbling.
3. Front sprocket cover paint flaking at edges.
4. Exhaust tips paint flaking at edges.

07 DX with only 1500 miles! Bike is well cared for. Did they not use primer?
Anyone else with the same issues? Just wondering if it's common and how many parts (if any) a dealer will replace.

I'm not planning on getting rid of the thing but for mucho $$$$$$ I expect a much better finish! Thoughts?

Thanks

I noticed some flaking of paint today too... some kind of square/triangular ring piece just below the throttle body... the denim paint is peeling off.

Mine is flaking in the same spot under the TB.

One thought - according to Haley the Denim stuff is supposed to "weather" to give that mean, used look. That's not the same thing as the paint falling off though. I don't have the DX, so I can't add any personal experience.

No problems with my Vivid / Denim. But only 4 1/2 months old, 3600 miles on odometer so far.
