During cleaning, for the first time since acquiring my Swing, I found that part of the protective coating of the wheel assemblies has been compromised. I suspect this was incurred during the removal of stick-on balance weights removed earlier . How best to treat this damaged area ?

Best option is to have them powder coated. As long as the tyres are replaced with care each time they will last the life of the bike!
I had the wheels done on my Honda Blackbird when it was 6 months old in candy red to match the bike and they have lasted like new for 12 years.

Thanks Hornblower .I do agree that powder coating would be the ultimate fix but ,at this stage I do not want to go to that length yet . I had more of an in-situ temporary solution in mind. Temporary/permanent that is  Wink
