My daughter got an 06 TRX250 a couple weeks ago and the plastics were in pretty bad shape when we picked it up. You could tell he left it outside for most of its life. Hubby did some research on renewing them and found that the "plastic renew" stuff on the market didn't have good reviews with other enthusiasts. So he bought a heat gun for $25 at Lowe's. It took him a good 2 hours to cover every inch of red plastic but if you're looking to renew faded plastics without a whole lot of money, I highly recommend getting a heat gun. The difference was night and day. Or, pink and red!
