I recently bought a 900SS CR and there's evidence of a clutch-bleed gone bad in the form of discoloration on the engine. Does anybody have an off-the-shelf spray paint recommendation to match the silver engine color?

i see you found some info on color but here's some advice regarding paints...DON'T use one of the high temp engine enamels that contain ceramic. i've tried a few and they never spray a nice even glossy coat. that ceramic powder does not spray evenly and you get a weird finish.

Re: (Sticky)

The VHT paints I used worked very well on the Ducati motor. Bake it with a heat lamp or in the oven for an hour or so. It doesn't come out glossy, but it's really not supposed to. Overall it's a very good match........

Re: (chiromikey)

The baking part only makes it more resistant to solvents, etc.. It's not mandatory, but it certainly helps set the paint.......
