Well, the inevitable happened and I got a scratch on the leading edge of my front fender. I have the gray model, SCR95MGY. The dealer does not stock touch up paint and referred me to colorrite.com but their Yamaha choices do not include the 2017 SCR. Next stop was our local auto-parts store where their paint selection offered an almost exact match with Dupli-Color ACC0414 Metallic Graphite for Chrysler. This comes as an all-in-1 pen with paint brush and clear-coat sealant the other end with sponge applicator. A bit pricey but very convenient.

Sorry you dinged your new bike.
Way cool on the paint match, though!

I'm curious about the match on the red SCR's silver fender as it's a non-gloss paint.
I barely tapped the rear of the fender with a wrench while installing the skid plate.
You gotta look really hard to see the mark, thankfully.

I accidentally dinged my Tenere's plastic front fender with the roughened end of a tire gauge chuck.
Figuring the metallic black would be no fun to try and match, I ended up covering the ding with some red reflective tape
in a way that sort of compliments the existing graphics on the fairing.

Might be a good time to start considering a clear vinyl wrap, it might have reduced or prevented the damage, and unlike cars its easy enough for anyone here to do it themselves over a weekend, you just have to make the paint is in good condition.

I took a closer look at the red model on my dealer's floor yesterday and indeed that chalky off-white looks more difficult to color match. The darker graphite hides any slight mismatch better, in my opinion.

Whatever gets the job done. :grin2: If a fender gets excessively scratched, especially the silver one, then it may just be easier to repaint the whole thing so there's no color variations on the same piece.

I was hoping to find the paint scr950 paint codes, but the model may still be too new and the paint aftermarket needs to catch up. Color Rite is generally a good place to find factory paint codes.

Yea.. it is a pain in the behind. But you could always try those color sample prints. Spray the sample chip and the paint with some wax and grease remover or something and you'll get the clear coated tone of it.

If you go through the right blending process it can work out well enough to the point you can hardly tell the difference but not everyone has the correct tools or know how. This is why it pays to know a good detailer.
