Frame paint color match

Postby Scrandy » 01:31 pm Jul 30 2016

Hey on the left side of my bike (04 kdx220) the paint on the frame had worn off in one spot. So I was wondering what the closest color of paint I could buy down at crappy tire would be. They sell mostly rustoleum and krylon spray paints. Thanks

Thank you, Julien D for all your hard work!

PLEASE! Do not "dip" PWK Keihin carbs in Berryman's to clean them! It will damage the internal o-ring (jet block gasket).

in my experience, no good "crappy tire store" paint match. get ColorRite off road paint. # 3050-OR kawasaki lime green. as close to perfect match. got mine off computer/ebay/amazon whatever lowest price. around $15 - $20 + shipping. well worth it

My frame is silver and the paint I was looking at on there was like $60 if I remember correctly

You could get a few shades of silver and test it out. If you lightly mix a couple, you may get it close.

2003 to 2006 were various gray or silver colors.

1988 - 2002 were a lime green.

196 - 1988 were a silver / gray color.

I think before 1986, they were all black.
