Left side bag cover

Has anyone had the left side bag cover have the paint start to dull on just the top half of the cover? The rest of the paint on the bike is almost perfect. It can't be the sun because I use the side stand. All I can think is maybe the exhaust is heating the air in the side bag or maybe the heat that goes across the battery is causing it to dull. Has anyone else seen this. Oh yes I have 150,000 on my bike. Shooting for 200,000.

Re: Left side bag cover

Hi, yes the paint started to dull on just the top half of the left cover too. But we are in Florida half the year ..winter.. & half in Michigan ..summer. In Michigan the bike is in the shed , But...In Florida the bike is out side. I keep a cover over the bike, & I have been thinking the cover rubbing the paint has caused it to dull up.
