Scratch Removal

My friend was playing with his Kawasaki KLX last night and crashed. Thank God... He didn't hurt much and his bike was a bit damaged. The right side panel, right side hand guard and exhaust got scratched. Wondering a good and effective way to remove these scratches.
Any product recommendation that easily available at Walmart will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks..

Scratch Removal

Hey, the previous owner had dropped the bike I bought from him and there were some scratches that I had to get rid of. Being new to the Bike experience, I looked into a couple ways of doing it.

I ended up taking the fairings into an automotive shop and having the color matched and getting "spray bombs". 2 colors were 60$ and it's a full sized can of spray paint mixed and perfectly matched. So to remove the scratches on the fairings took a tube of Bondo auto body filler, lots of wet sanding, primer, spray bombs and clear coat.

As for the exhaust, I have no idea. My aluminum, or chrome or something exhaust has a couple scratches in it I tried to buff out with toothpaste (works as a gold and silver polish, figured it was worth a try) This got rid of the smaller surface scratches, but the deeper ones remain.

Hope this helps a little, and I'm speaking from my limited first time experience, but figured anything could help. Let me know what you end up doing and what works for you.

Quixx scratch removal. This should be available at walmart, I didn't buy it there but it sounds like something they would have and it worked very well on my Suzuki GS500.

Autosol metal polish is still working for me, but you can leave the dull area. One of the most abrasive, you can use a toothpaste and a soft cloth such as a bond that protects against cavities in the future.
