Where to get correct paint color for pillion hangers?

Ok, so I got some F4 passenger pegs for my 1078 but they need to be touched up in a few spots (not completely repainted). Where can I get the correct color? Needs to be mail order since I am in Seoul.

I figured this must've been covered previously but my searches didn't turn up any answers.

Thanks,

John

Frame and bodywork paint codes are found in the owner manuals. Provide to local paint shop.

I would NOT try for an exact match. The separation from those hangers to anything else is too far to do a direct comparison. Make it easy on yourself and go for close.

If they are metallic silver then very difficult to invisibly spot repair.

I just edited my post because what I meant to say is not what I typed. I wouldn't try for an exact match, but I would respray the entire assembly, pegs and hangers. Using a similar easily available silver.

Unbolt them take them to a body/paint shop and they should be able to do it without issue. Regardless of color. If it were me, I would spot in the color and apply a coat of clear to the assembly like Chuck said and done.

Thanks guys. I guess I will start looking for a paint store or body shop around here. It would be easy in the US but not so much here.

Would you like me to source some paint here in UK. ? There are good sellers.

I'd need to check into the regs for air transport of aerosols
