Remove scuff marks from fairing

I have some scuff marks on my fairing....wax almost covers it, so not too deep. Any suggestions to make them go away---a light abrasive?

Hondagloss Hi-Tech Liquid Polish & Sealant available at most Honda dealers works very well for me.

If it's a surface type stain and not in the paint - but on it try some wd40

Thanks, but not a stain..but long thin scuff from a wire.

I've polished out some serious scuffs with Turtle "Scratch off". Mild abrasive but can do amazing stuff. Follow with wax.

I have used Meguiars Scratch X 2.0 (bought at Wal Mart) to get rid of the scuff marks on the side of the fake gas tank with great results. It might be the same product as the Turtle Wax "Scratch Off".
