Touch up paint

Can anyone guide me to a website where they offer touch up paint? I have the color number but dealer doesn't carry touch up paint.

Thanks

Re: Touch up paint

Sorry I found a thread and the website.

Has anyone ordered from colorite? The champagne color looks different then my bike, although it's a webiste color.

Hello jetfumes

I tried the colorite , they had me send a piece of the bike to match , I sent the small piece below the oddments box . They got closer but after 2 years the clearcoat has yellowed .
2 spray cans for $50 not such a good deal .
Next time I will go to an auto paint supply house that can match paint . After talking to a auto paint pro , he stated that metalic paint are damm hard to patch paint said it is better to paint the whole panel / section /side .
My bike is a 99 with champagne color . Pay the postage and you can have the two cans I have , one is color and the other is clearcoat . send a PM if you want them

Re: Touch up paint

Thanks Bob, I'll go with your recommendation and just goto an automotive repair shop for color match.
