Yep. The PO of my K2 dropped it, leaving scratches on the leading edge of the front
fender just as you describe. Just didn't look right when I bought it a year ago.
I bought a polisher wheel for my 1/4" drill and a stick of Tripoli buffing compound
from the ACE hardware. It can really take off the plastic if you're not careful. I
removed most of the scratches leaving a very smooth surface. Finished up with
"Mother's Back to Black Vinyl/Plastic Restorer". Cheap, and worked out pretty well.
I've been using the "Mother's B to B" on all the black vinyl and plastic ever since.
In fact, I haven't noticed or remembered the scratches until I read your post.
