Hi i have one question.
My tachiometer /speedometer have many scratches on the surface.
do someone know if there are some aftermarket palstic cover to solve this issue ?
as you can see they are quite damaged..
What bike is this? Are you sure that is plastic and not glass as I am not aware that Honda made any tachometers or speedometers with plastic faces. All the ones I've seen are glass.
In any case, the glass ones are not serviceable from what I could see.
How deep are the scratches? If they're not deep (and don't catch on your finger nails) you can probably buff them out.
I used the Meguiars headlight restoration kit (not sure if its the same as earlier mentioned) on an instrument cluster screen off a car I am restoring, it took out all the haze (which it doesnt appear you have) and also some of the scratches in the plastic. It also comes with a sealer. Though it may not take out the scratches completely it will probably lessen them and the sealer may help mask them.
The sealer in the restoration kit may work better than the polish; it might fill the scratches better. Make sure you really clean the surface before using it. If it is plastic, you can try touching it with a Q-tip soaked in acetone, in a 'corner' that you may not notice; acetone should soften the spot a little.
You can try Toothpaste. It works well on prescription eyeglasses. It won't take out gouges but because it is such a fine abrasive it could work on parts of it. It does take some time to do it. Blend it out. Don't rub back and forth.
