Question How to remove yoke scratches?

Hi all,

I have been searching on a way to remove the scratches caused by hanging keys on the top yoke of 2012 GSA but the only pages I find is how to cover those scratches.
Do you suggest any sand paper or solvent or anything else?

Thank you!

Sand and repaint. Then use Only the bike key with nothing dangling from it.

I use this to prevent scratches:

Harder to fix them, so I got this when my bike was new.

Not sure if there is a cover like the old bikes you to have available. But they used to have decals that protected the yoke.

IMO, part of the reason you're not finding a whole lot is because it's a PIA to take apart that area to fix those scratches vs. covering it with a sticker.

Anything you do (sanding, painting, etc...), you'd have to do to the whole part or else it'd probably look worse than the original scratches.
