Need source for 07 R1200s fork tube paint

Well it was a matter of time until I scratched the beautiful silver crinkle finish paint on the bottom of the fork tube on my S, and now I have

Anyone have a source for a real match to touch this up. Touch up should be easy as the paint has a heavy crinkle finish, but I would like to the color to match as closely as possible.

Thanks in advance!



Robert

If it's a minor scratch, just ride it over to a Pep Boys type store and match it to some auto touch up paint.

Wurth makes a silver paint to match the BMW powdercoating. I've seen it used and it's a spot on match.

Joey the parts manager at Touring Sport BMW (864-232-2269) usually stocks some. If you call and talk to him nicely he might even airbrush it on for you. Tell him I mentioned it to you.
