Gen1 black frame and engine paint
« on: 20 March 2017, 07:04:27 PM »
Anyone found good matches for these? Had a quick search, but couldn't find anything. Mine needs a couple of spots touching up. Seems like more of a very dark grey graphite-like finish.
Would be useful for PieEater's FAQ section too.

RS Bike paints do it, it has a Yamaha paint code.


My bike had a powerbronze belly pan fitted and it touched the road when pressing on, this caused the brackets to move and scratch the paint.


This happened to me in 2005 and at the time RS supplied a Honda car colour which was a perfect match.

Just done parts of my black engine gen1 with RS paint, not cheap but almost impossible to tell the difference between old & new. If your scratches are large enough & in a position that you can use an aerosol rather than touch up brush it will blend in better. Don't forget your etch primer, you can use Halfords grey etch primer rather than buy RS as Halfords is compatible with the black RS gen 1 engine paint. If you want a pic of my engine let me know & i'll bung one up for you.

Thanks chaps. Sorry for the delay in acknowledgement, I was hoping someone might come up with a cheaper option  :rolleyes :lol


RS Paints it is then. Don't happen to know the correct code, anyone?

It's Power black/matt black metallic 2 but all the info is there when you input your year/make of bike etc.
