Does anyone know what paint is a match for the factory white on an 1150 RTP? I want to do some touchup, and figure that BMW ("Bring Money, Wilhelm!") will charge me by the CC for the stuff from them.

And before fingernail polish is suggestion, there is too much area for that to be practical.

Google Colorite... they specialize in motorcycle paint colors.

Unfortunately, they only list the colors used on the RT, not the white on the RTP.

Solo - most auto body shops now have the ability to computer color match rather than rely upon a paint code. The newer emissions-friendly, lead-free paints may hold their gloss better (because of the almost universal use of clear topcoats) but I'm not sure the actual color is as stable. If it's an 1150 RTP it's probably been on the road a bit, so even if you got a code the fresh paint might not match the now aged paint you have.

First time through you might have to bite the bullet and get the shop to color match for you.

Possibly.

I'm still hoping that some other guy bit the bullet already. ;)
