There is a chip in the paint where the bottom of the headlight hits the fairing. I wish to touch it up. The owner's manual gives a PPG code called "Ago Red" but it's invalid. Does anyone know the code for the red, preferably PPG but anyone's will do and they'll cross it over.

I want to change one thing on the bike. All my bikes are GP shift pattern, and I'd like to convert this one to same. What I don't need is confusion when things are tight and go the wrong way. I note that Sato makes rearsets which will allow reversing the pattern. Adjustable etc. etc. I considered making up my own shifter linkage but then I'd have to cobble up the stock set up which I will not do. Not on this one. $$$$$. Anyone have any input?

Odonata who is currently in europe can probably answer some questions about reverse GP shift pattern. He just did the install on his Senna with a reverse drum and such

Reverse drum is out of the question. Particularly when the end result can be accomplished with a proper shift linkage.

Lee, I can't help you with a PPG code, however, Testors "RED" enamal model paint code #1103 is an EXACT match. I use the very same on the very same. I use the liquid, not the spray, you can't even see it. Available at any hobby store.

G'luck wid it!

two eleven,

Hey thanks for the tip. Some of their paints are fuel proof which would make it even better yet.

....Or, we could just avoid getting fuel in the headlight region? :stickpoke

Can't wait to see it...

Hey Lee, I had a mate who had a Ducati 916 Linkage and he cut off the spigot and had it welded to the standard MV peg. Looked just like a factory job.
(The ducati has a linkage and the MV is direct.)

MVA,

I considered modifying my shifter side as you mentioned but given the cost and hopeful value of the bike I don't want to megger around with the stock parts. If I should sell it I want to have the original parts to put back on. Which is why I'm leaning towards rearsets from Sato in a gold finish.
