My wife has the 04 limited and as far as flaking goes, not a problem and she too has a few scratches on it. I have gone to my local dealer and they ordered up some touch up paint for it which seems to match real well.
I just picked up an '06 SE on Friday and a few hours ago I took the side access panel off to do a visual and noticed the carbon fiber overlay is starting to pull up around the edges. I bet I could pull it right off if I tried. Very disappointed.
Cowchip, I would take them back to the dealer and see if you get new ones? My paint and side panels are holding up good. I just checked my side panels and I have no peeling to speak of. Good Luck........Irv
Yeah, I'm going to take both sides off and take them in. It's not visable....yet, because it's happening on the rolled edges where the overlay ends. I'm worried about the rest of the panels that have this too (hood). If a small scratch occurs, what's to stop it from completely coming off? From what I see it's not adhered very good at all.
I inspected the right side panel and it looks great with no signs that it could pull off at all. I took the bad panel to the dealer and they are getting me a new one.....$200+ for that fancy piece of plastic!! Glad warranty is taking care of it. I told them I'll keep my old one for a spare if they let me for that price! I'm sure Yamaha will want it back.
