Brake fluid damage
 
Just noticed my master cylinder has been leaking (probably for some time as havent driven the bike in a while) and there is a kind of a white streak mark in the fairing panel where the dot 4 has dripped down damaging the paintwork.
Short of bringing it to an expert or buying a new fairing is there any over the counter products that might work?

Try rubbing compound,T-cut or the like,before you panic.

If the damage isn't too deep, give it a rub with some rubbing
compound and then polish it using ordinary polish and wax.
If the damage is very slight, a very fine liquid abrasive like T-Cut
might do the job.

You can cut deeper into the paint or lacquer using a
fine wet paper, but you are getting into 'expert'
territory here.

edit: SoulX beat me to the draw :)

I has some brake fluid damage, it got into a cut in my hand. Within days I was growing an extra finger. Had it removed- the surgeon described it as a very aggressive cancer. All gone now but lads, USE GLOVES.

Out of all the chemicals I have to deal with,brake fluid is the one I hate the most
