I've been spiffin' up the ol' 400, and suddenly the paint rubbed off the clutch cover/ignition is looking poor. Where can I get paint that would match the factory Yamaha silver/gray color that was once on there? I checked for a PJ-1, couldn't find it.. :)

Go to rockymountainatv.com and go to the paint section...they sell the PJ1 case paint...good stuff and has held up pretty good on my bike.

Cool. Should I get the YZ Metallic silver, or the Satin Grey for a '98 400f clutch cover?

I would go with the YZ metallic...i think it looks better. Makes a great paint for the swingarm too.

The PJ1 Yamaha metallic silver case paint doesn't look like a very good match. See the attached pics below. Has anyone tried using PJ1 Suzuki satin grey case paint?

Put on some aftermarket covers looks way trick... any way you go it's just going to rub off again.... Good luck:thumbsup:

Good eye Gray. It's a Norton Commando crank case I believe. I found the pics here:
