Thanks guys.

Fine scratch removal paste and nu-finish should do it.

A polishing compound might be best for black paint. I'm partial to Menzerna but I'm sure any of the good ones will do. Follow up with good wax. Again, I'm partial to MaGuiars NXT Tech Wax but I'm sure Turtle Ice or some of the other good quality waxes will do.

I've done this so many times on my old silver Ninja 650R. Mostly because of the tank bag.

I would use a buffing compound brush with polish (it was green). Then take a soft cloth and use some fine cut scratch paste with some elbow grease.

I don't know, it just worked for me doing it that way.

Don't buy nothing.

Find a good body shop and have them buff it out is will be the best money you can spend
