    Does anyone know how to fix these scratches? I’ve heard that can be painted by nail varnish. They are not deep but annoying.

    Thanks for any help

    wouldn’t even bother touching them, too small to matter.

    I have used clear car laquer and that worked well. Rubbed the protruding edge of scratch with wet and dry. Cleaned. Filled scratch with light coats of clear laquer. Rubbed back flat with slow, careful application of wet and dry – only to lacquered area – until smooth. Job done.

    How do they feel? Top one looks like it could be a bit scrapey, but maybe not, touch is more useful.

    If they’re not causing oil to leak then leave them well alone.

    Same happened to mine a while back. LBS sorted it out with a bit of clear nail varnish and some wet and dry action.

    Top one is hard to feel, and doesn’t leak, so maybe I’ll leave as it is.
    Thanks
