sounds like bubbles in the clear coat, cosmetic only, but without pics it's hard to tell

The most common cause is water in the lines when they cleared the bike. Had that issue on my fork that io stripped and cleared. I forgot to clear my lines first. During the cure the bubbles try to gas out but get trapped. Only option is to wetsand the clear and polish it back out.

You really don't need to clean your bike intensely . I just use baby wipes to clean everything . Throwing water all around is a no no. My bike is immaculate. +1 post above
Hope it works out ok
