I want to touch-up the clutch and magneto covers on my 2008 WR450F.

Does anyone know what paint I can use to do this?

It's not exactly a black colour, more like a dark grey.

 

Thanks in advance,

Greg

I sand blasted and painted the clutch and magneto cover on 2 WRs.   Used VHT engine enamel and no primer.  It has held up better than what ever the factory used.  2 seasons and it looks great, not even showing boot wear.

Thanks for the responses guys!

 

 

 

Try ColorRite motorcycle paint.

Sadly it appears that I can't buy ColorRite motorcycle paint from the US stevethe.  :unsure:

Australia doesn't come up as an option in the Shipping part of their website's "Shopping Cart".

 

 

 

On the other hand, we can buy VHT paints here...

flyandride, do you recall what colour VHT paint you used?

As I said earlier, it's not exactly a black colour, more like a dark grey, so regular matt black wouldn't match.
