    Well today I went into my garage to get on my bike. I just bought a 2007 Daytona 675, all black. This thing is my pride and joy. Well I look at it and it looks extremely dusty, but I notice it's not coming off. Upon closer inspection it's ALL over the entire bike. Then it hits me. My father a few days ago was outside the side entrance to the garage door painting with an aresol can. Well I guess he decided to spray the side door and not shut it and not bother to cover up my bike. So now I have shit brown paint all over my bike. I'm not exagerating when I say this. THe fairings, the tank, the seats, the windscreen, the guage cluster, everything. When I saw this I thought I was going to be sick. Of course his $30,000 Harley is ok. He tries to downplay it by saying it will buff out, and he'll pay for it and it will look brand new. I'm just so angry right now. My poor black bike :sad2:

    Does anyone on here know what would be my best course of action to getting this fixed? Buy new plastics, repaint the entire bike? I dunno, help please

    I had a similar thing happen to my 4runner, home owners assoc decided to paint fences with a tank sprayer and covered every car but mine. Got an estimate to get it repaired, H.O.A. wrote me a check for it and then I decided to see what I could do to get it off without spending the cash they just gave me.

    Clay bar and wetsanding the problem spots worked like a charm, I used a razor on the glass. It all depends how well the paint adhered to the bike... if the paint drops were pretty wet it may take a good amount of effort to get it clean. n

    Good luck!

    If my dad did that there would be an arc welder incident involving all of his

    when i worked at a body shop, overspray happens all the time because it just hangs in the air. just get a clay bar and work it out, it should be fine.

    Guys thanks for all the suggestions, specially the ones that made me burst out laughing.

    I started with the clay bar and it's slowly, but surely coming off :)

    My grandpa has a body shop. They make this special kind of putty/clay stuff you just rub on the over spray and it comes right off and doesn't harm the clear coat on cars or anything.

    Its some kind of eraser. I forgot what its called though but it will all just come right off. Ill talk to him tomorrow and find out what it is.

    At work now, I'll post pics later.

    I used something called x103 and it took everything off. So sadly no pics of brown paint, but of sexy black bike :)

    Roundhouse kick to the head...

    But seriously, something like this happened to my Dad's green Honda Ridgeline with yellow paint and we were able to get it off. I kid you not we saw this stuff at the autoshow and bought two bottles. It works magic, all you need is a little elbow greese and that shit will come right off.

    www.pinkwax.net YES, it really does work

    EDIT: Shit, didn't notice the post where you said it came off.
