More important than the white streaks, IMHO, is whether or not you got any of it on your tires themselves. If you did, they are going to be super-slick so be careful the first time you ride.

Plexus is a plastic polish, i use it to keep my helmet and visor shiny and clean.. i dont think it'll remove damage like that tho.

Don't know if this will work but it is the first thing I would try. Be careful and test a small spot with caliper, brake, or disc cleaner. Its all the same stuff and really strong so try it on a small spot and let it dry for five minutes before you get your hopes up. Good luck and let me know how everything works out!

I CONCUR with the WD-40

Also yeah armorall on a bike? WTF over?
Just teasing you man as since i cant get honda polish i use 2001 on all the hoese and plastic bits...works great..

The wheels and swingarmas stated cleaned with wd-40 now.
just make sure that you dont just spray it all over as the brake system and WD-40 dont go well together add to rag and apply.

I use armor all on the black plastics, that's about it. I'm scared to put it on my tires for the reason listed above: too slick. I haven't had a problem with it, maybe you just have a bad bottle? Or maybe I just lucked out?

The armorall he/she used is the wheel cleaner type, not that greasy shit for plastic/rubber.

I also use WD-40 to clean my wheels, but I'm not sure if that will take the streaks out. Maybe some type of scratch removing polish would do it? Good luck getting rid of them.
