Try rubbing compound.............!!!!!! The heavy duty stuff! and also use it with an electric drill with a lambs wool buffing attachment...... Good luck :thumbup: :thumbup: hmmmmmmmm!! Also - if that doesnt work well - cover it with refective tape..!!!!!!

If all else fails, GIVI sells replacement pieces for most of that stuff that you can use to replace the damaged ones. I replaced several of the outer pieces on my V46 after they were damaged in a crash.

I cleaned up the rear tail light pretty good with PlastX and a sponge drill attachment.
Careful buffing and now it is much better, not prefect, but not very noticeable.
Good Luck

Good suggestions so far, and another option is to rub-down and repaint.

For the unpainted, black plastic the whitish, distressed areas can be made much less noticeable by carefully applying a clean flame (I used a long-tipped butane lighter). The heat relaxes the plastic and visually softens the road rash and scratches. I had some pretty evident road rash on areas of both the bike and my topcase and, while still there they don't leap out at you like they did before.

You can also use a scotch brite pad on the black parts to soften the scratches and make them less noticeable. That is what I did on mine when I repaired it.
