Replacing Faded Plastic buttons on controls
 
Has anyone replaced their Plastic buttons, such as Info, Heated Grips,Kill switch? I bought a bike and the paint is faded away.

Don't know if you can get it where you live but EMU oil revives the color of faded plastic switched amazingly and doesn't leave a sticky residue. It's cheaper than new switches !

I am more concerned about restoring the painted symbols then the color of the buttons. Does anyone have any info at all?

You can't buy switch cluster components separately.
If you want more pristine looking buttons you need to buy a new complete cluster.

Frankly, I don't see the point of fussing that much over how a GS looks...

Thanks yeah I kinda of thought so. It normally would not bother me but this bike is basically new, with only 300 miles I kinda wanted a new looking bike to begin with.

I'm thinking that all of you who don't care what your GS looks like have an epiphany when getting it ready to sell.

No I care especially like I said the bike is new,just left out in the sun I guess. I would like to replace them but not if it cost a lot I thought there might have been a way to change out just the buttons.

Best bet is to find used switchgear like at beemer boneyard

Might want to try ebay or ibmwr as well.
