lol dude we ride in the roughest place imaginable... no scratches.. as long as you dont wrap it around a tree it's fine. april 5 we rode at durhamtown after 4-5 days of raining... rained while we were there too.... all our atvs were the most covered i've EVER seen... including ANY pictures i've seen on the internet. it took me 6 washes to get it back to normal.... came out no scratches at all...
you just have to pressure wash off the mud.. like a car.. you can't start scrubbing with a brush or rag while it's covered in mud.... hose all the big stuff off....
when i wash mine all i do is spray off all the mud.... $1.00 at the car wash.
go back and spray simple green over everything.... hose it off again.. another $1.00
spray simple green again and hit it with a brush... hose off again $1.00
comes out brand new scratch free every time... it's been 1.6yrs so far on my paint
