I ordered one of the chrome clamshells for my 03 this last summer, I put it on around the middle of August. put my windshield back on. I only rode the bike 2 maybe 3 times in town, with the windscreen on. I had to leave town for the rest of the summer, after returning home went into my shop to clean the bike, oil change, cover the bike etc for storage. I took my windshield off washed the bike, while I was drying it, I noticed some smudge marks on the clamshell?? It looks kind of like when a bug smacks it. I grabbed some bug and tar remover- nothing happened, then tried to buff it out with scratch remover-nothing. It wont come off. Shouldn't this thing be more durable than that? I am wondering if the thing wasn't prepped right before it was chromed and it's starting to show?? I hope it doesn't get worse. I was wondering how many people have chrome clamshells and if they have had any problems?? Maybe I should have just taken mine into the chrome shop.
