I painted my bike myself....it looked awsome for about 2 weeks. The cover was on and it got really hot out. When I uncovered it, most of the clearcoat came off.....the sun made it real tacky for some reason. I asked a friend about it who has a body shop and he was confused as to why it did that. He told me that if I stripped the paint, he would give me a professional paint job for next to nothing as a favor. I used regular paint stripper on the gas tank. I went to an automotive paint distributor and asked for special stripper for the plastics. I used it and some black started to some off with the paint so I stopped right there and plan on dropping the pieces off at the body shop tomorrow. I am just wondering if anyone knows if kawasaki parts come from the factory with black primer on them or did this stripper for plastics screw up my plastics?
