Is it pos­si­ble to Q mend my lens?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

My R1 top­pled over in the garage leav­ing a shal­low graze right across the head­light lens. What can I do? John Roberts, New­cas­tle

An­swered by KCMC, MCN fo­rums You will need a vari­able speed drill, two lamb’s wool buf­fers, a buff­ing-type wheel and some T-cut. Take the head­light out and sit it be­tween your knees. Put plenty of T-cut on the buff­ing wheel and keep the drill speed down or it will over­heat and melt the plas­tic. Wipe clean ev­ery 30 sec­onds or so to check. This should take the worst of the dam­age off if you do it prop­erly. Then use an­other soft buff­ing wheel to pol­ish it lightly with the wax pol­ish. Then pol­ish by hand with a very soft cloth and a good wax body paint pol­ish.
