The PO of my 660 rattle canned the plastics white. They were originally black, and every time something rubs against the plastic it leaves a mark now. Any ideas to remove the paint chemically that will not damage my plastics? I've tried a pressure washer and that didn't help....

You can try aircraft stripper (Kleenstrip?). Test it before you do the whole bike. You can find it at Pep Boys. The spray is easy to apply but you get more for your money if you get the pour-n-wipe.

I recently stripped peeling paint from some Honda Rancher wheels. It worked almost instantly. Get some rubber gloves and a plastic scraper.

Paint stripper thats safe for plastics? Thats what I used on an old banshee I used to have. Any hardware store should carry some.

LIke posted above the aircraft stripper in the spray can works well and didn't do any damage to plastic fenders when I used it on some old painted banshee fenders.

aircraft stripper contains methylene chloride, and will chew up some plastics. There should be a moulded stamp inside your panels that states what material it's made from PE you'll be alright, because that's what the paint stripper jug is made from.
Use caustic soda !! I guarantee that it wont damage your plastic !!
Caustic soda is used in hot tanks for cleaning parts, and I beleive is the same as lye. Make sure you wear goggles because this stuff will play tic-tac-doe on your eyes.
