This happens when the clear coat that is sprayed over the resin deteriorates due to the elements. You can take it to a good painter and get the hugger looking almost new for a small price as compared to purchasing a new hugger.

...it might have to be sanded down completely and then re-coated. A bit of a pain in the rear-end, but the outcome will be worth it.

Is the bike usually parked outside?
