What kind of material are you using to wash and dry with? That could easily do it on black if you are using the wrong thing.Broken Spoke said:Purchased a new black FLHTCI a few months ago. I am having a problem with the clearcoat, whether I am washing or waxing the bike hair line scratches appear. Is it possible that the clear is to soft? Does anyone have an answer? Haven't talked with the stealer yet.
