Doubtful it's a problem, other than aesthetic. The coatings (ti-nitride or teflon) are clear; they color them for appearances, and the color does tend to wear off, but this in no way affects the performance.

I am in a hotel in Mississippi and am sure not happy. I will post pics as soon as I get in but aesthetically it looks cheap. 3K and bam. Spalding it is like an inch chrome ring on top of the black coating. I will be raising some hell. talked to a buddy of mine who does track days on his r1 and he said it could be trouble. said it goofs with "Stiction". I can't really comment on that but I don't like the new look of my forks, at least not at 3K

The only problem is that you're not polishing the entire length of the leg. Push it harder and use all the travel! Let me see you bottom that baby!

Seriously...what you are experiencing is normal. It's possible you experience accelerated wear from riding in dusty environments. You can clean your fork legs with a rag and silicone lubricant or a hard surface conditioner, and clean your dust wipers, to keep things slick, shiny, clean, and stiction-free.

Like with anodized rims, over time rocks and road debris will nick and damage your fork lowers, and the wear will be especially evident with dark coatings. But unless you have a gouge that is causing the fork oil to weep out from under the seal, it's not really a problem.

Don't panic! I often wonder why some people are obsessed with preventing bluing of their pipes-- I think it looks cool and shows the bike is being used. Same with your coatings.

Please post pictures.

I've bottomed my F4 twice now and it sure does go bang!

The first time was on a short gravel road near where I work, it came as a complete surprise the other time was out in the woods near a lake, just didn't realize how deep the ruts were!!!
