Hi all, so yesterday I was spraying some Plexus on my bike and I noticed some discoloring on the lower fairing near the kickstand. It looks like a coffee stain, any ideas on what might remove this? I think maybe some gas flowed out of the overflow tube and then stained the fairing. Anyone else have any exprience with this?

Pics would help,

But I think I have seen this before and I am pretty sure what you are seeing is actually a burn and it will never come off..

Are your fairings white?

Yes, the bike is pearl white. I took a picture but didn't upload it yet, i agree I thought it might have been a burn as well due to maybe the exhaust being very close. I'll post a pic later when I get home. If its burned in that would somewhat suck. Thankfully its not in a obvious spot and its small.

It is most likely oil coming from the overflow tube. In fact, I am positive that is what it is.

Put a sticker over it!! You can try polishing it up, or maybe wetsanding.

Your probably right about the oil, but why the hell would oil come from the overflow tube?

Did ya fill your oil too high? It could also very likely be from the fuel overflow line too
