Question Stator and clutch cover plastic coatings

So I never knew they were on there until they started to turn yellow a couple of months ago. Now that they have burned on for two years, any tips to remove them without scratching the covers ?

Chrome polish and elbow grease, and patience.
BTW.. the covers do polish up nicely once they are off.

Have the same problem with burned or heated on plastic coverings. Thanks for the tip.

Mine are starting to look rough too...already.

Any suggestions on a specific brand of polish, or cleaner, that works well on these locations???

Thanks........

I've had good results with the English Custom Polishes. I used the metal conditioning polish on the covers you mention and it really shined 'em up.

Motorcycle Cruiser ran an article about them.

All I did to remove them was heat the engine up and use a finger nail. Took about 20 minutes a cover, wasnt hard to get off with a hot engine.

I use Never Dull, works great on all metal, Be careful not to rub off the center circle, The Motor is painted and you can rub off the paint.
