Hello, as some of you may know, I dropped my bike off a paddock stand and it has a tiny bit of rash on the stator cover. Any body know a good high temp paint that is a close match?
Another repair:So I came across a damaged stator cover from my old 07+ when I was cleaning the garage the other day and was wondering if I could fix it. I replaced it at the time because a can of true color-match paint is nearly $50 with shipping.
Long story short; Off to Advance Auto i went. The first can I picked up was as close as I think you can get without paying the big bucks. Thought I would share: please see the photos below.
Paint: VHT Engine Metallic
Color: SP405, Black Pearl

Repair #3:Repair #2:
Had another few scratches on the stator cover on the part out bike. This time I baked the part to decrease the cure time and likely the increase the durability as compared to the 7-Day air cure (Can recommends 200°F for 1-Hour)
Before: (Some sanding done already)
Not 100% perfect but 100% better than it was before. Also, The paint is rock solid after the heat cure; very impressed so far.
I just dropped my FZ-09 6 days after buying it.First week of owning my fz-09 I dropped it in front of the gym while a bunch of nice girls were walking out
I can bend the clutch lever back but I have to repaint a nice scratch on the left side of the engine.
Since I'm not setup to spray paint I found a kit on colorrite for the exact color, which is the same for the engine and the frame. I'm choosing the aereosol kit which has primer, base, touch up can and all I need. Between the rubbing compound and wet paper I should get close to a spray job.

If you don't hear back from me it means I worked great.
Thanks a lot. What about primer and clear coat ? Did you have to use them ?I left the bike running and the motor was hot and sprayed the bolts and other shiny stuff on the engine case without taping anything up. Follow the directions on the can and have something you can spray onto before spraying the bike so you know your if the paint isn't spraying right out of the can. Even thought it's tempting to spray the whole can at once, do light coats of paint and give it time to dry.
