Paint Chip

I got my first paint chip and at only 2,000 kms. The dealer had no info so I contacted Yamaha Canada (I wanted a paint stick). Anyways to help everyone this is what I learned and I have ordered the paint stick. If you get a 2020 dark grey model, the paint colour is dark gray metallic G, colour code 1086 and they recommended www.colorrite.com

The first one is always the hardest. The couple after that show that you use it. After that they give it character. My 2001 has as much character as me. But you have to look real hard to see the classics character. Mine not so much.

I ain't lost until the tank is empty!

Your paint info, should be on a sticker on the underside, of the left side bag lid, or the wall of same bag.

Character! I have a nice selection of fingernail polish that does the trick...It also doubles as a loc-tight. Some I stole from my wife or daughter; the black, I had to buy on my own.
