Default Clearcoat peeling off cam covers...

Exactly as it says. Question is this: do I bother arm wrestling the dealership to get them replaced under warranty, or just pony up the bill and a half for a nice set of Ness finned covers. OR (!), arm-wrestle the dealer to count the cost of warranty replacement TOWARD the purchase of the Ness covers?

Moreover, anybody had this problem on their cam covers? I've never used polish or abrasives on the aluminum, so I don't know why they're peeling. The rest of the aluminum, like the triple trees, looks fine.

I've also looked at some of the custom aftermarket stuff, but most of what I've found is adhesive (no...why don't they just have the screw-holes drilled in 'em?) or there's not a matching left side primary for the right side cam or vice versa.

Anyway, I'm just rambling because I'm confined to my hotel room still and thought I'd fish for some opinions

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

My '03 TCD did it and so did my '09 Vision. I had plenty of carbon fiber wrap left over from when I did my dash and covered it. Was OK for a while , I added the Ness covers a while back.

The large one with the two screws take those out and just pull off and just pull the small one off they are just glued.

I don't really like the OEM cam and primary covers anyway, plan on getting a set on Ness or other aftermarket covers for mine down the road.

OEM short windshield, passenger backrest, crash bars, saddle bag bars, heated grips, vinyl closeouts, tachometer, ambient temp, LED headlight, luggage rack. WD lay down licence plate.
