At the risk of sounding like an idiot, you don't have clear wrap on it do you?
Reason I ask is looking at the pics enlarged it looks to me like some edging of clear wrap on some sections.
I have clear wrap (Expel) on mine.

Looks like he does, you're right.
I usually wash my bike after nearly every ride, now I think I won't mess with it unless it really needs cleaning.

Yes the bike is ppf wrapped ive started to think maybe its the wrap its self reacting with the sun ?

Or maybe its the sprays they use to apply the wrap whats eating the paint im not sure though 馃

Sprays for applying (Baby shampoo, alcohol that gets diluted and Xpel gel if required)

Just about to order another set of panels and tank just really hope i dont get the issue this time again but im not sure on what to really try doing differently :/

If i may ask and you haven't had any issues what did they use to apply your wrap ?

Just pulled off some of the wrap and put my new panels next to the original you can see the colour difference looks like the panel is stained any ideas im thinking it was maybe the cheap wrap used but then again im just not sure it seems im struggling with 2 different issues here ones a browning and the other is this colour change :(

I'm not sure of the spray they use on application, someone else on here may know.
That is odd how your paint is fading in sections like that, may still be related to the type of wrap they use?
Maybe take one of the old panels affected to a automotive paint specialist who can take a closer look at the surface and diagnose what's happening.

I've had no issues with the bike paint due to the wrap, it's been on the bike from 3 weeks after getting it in early 2017 (new 2015 left over model).
The only "issue" I have is that the tank was done in two sections, with where the sections meet being halfway on the tank, making a fine join line across from left to right. They said that was the only template available at the time for the tank. Not really a big issue as if you don't know about it you wouldn't see it.
