In the words of a mechanic I work with..."In order to fix the problem, you must first understand the problem" (Everytime I am about to lay a wrench to something, he stands behind me and repeats that!) One day he is going to realize, he's the problem but I digress....
In this case it would seem that unlike automotive paint, the plastic is moulded in color on the KLR. Therefore I assume the fading is the color breaking down from UV and the plastic turning back to it's natural color - white. I'm thinking the only way to renew the color is to remove enough of the outer layers to expose the color again (as noted above) or apply a coat of paint (or other covering) over the plastic, but I'm not sure how it would stand up over time to the flexing that plastic is subject too.
As somebody else mentioned, I'm getting used to it slowly turning pink. Real men after all can wear pink! Right?
