I ran into a rock curb and got a lot of scratches on the under carriage, if I take them off and fill the scratches with Bondo and sand them down and spray paint them will they look all right. I think Bondo will stick to fiber glass.

If you have any boat dealers near where you live, many carry a video on do-it-yourself fiberglass and gelcoat repair. Much of the material will apply to repairs on the Burgman (and Gold Wings, Corvettes, etc.) as well as to boats -- could help you to get that extra nice job that no one but you will know was ever done.

Depending on the severity of the damage, you might be able to just use touch up paint to hide the damage. I had a couple of fairly deep scratches on the lower right of my Burgman and used a touch up paint to cover them. Since they are low on the bike, they are only noticable if you are closely inspecting the bike.

if its a 650...the panel from ronayers.com is only $140 might be worth saving the labor and cost of bondo and just buy a new panel

I like to cover scratches with stickers.
Arai/Shoei stickers reflective stickers or whatever
you can find that'll do a good job hiding it.
