Well, I have the red frame and it is an unusual color. But I needed to touch up silver and found Rustolium silver is pretty close. I have a friend with a body shop. But I've never asked him how he matches. I bet it's from a professional chart that he calls in to the paint shop. So if you want to be close find a body shop paint store. One doesn't tend to think of them but they are around industrial areas. They have to be really good or they couldn't repair cars. I know he sometimes gets stuff that costs $150 a pint just to match new cars. My point is that the experts have stores for that.

Its not paint thats on the frame its powder coating, pc is way more durable than paint. If you just painted it it would probably only last a day or two. Either get frame protectors or get it pc'd again just my 2 cents

I'm pretty sure the frame and everything else on the bike is painted from the factory. I don't think Yamaha powder coats anything. And powder is stronger than paint but that doesn't mean a good paint job won't hold up. Plus he's just looking for touch up paint. To powder coat the frame is A TON of work.

I've had friends PC a bike. Lots of money and you gotta strip it and put it back together. One PC guy upped the price from his bid as soon as he had the frame in the shop. Urge to kill ...
