i have a 98 suzuki gsx-r 600 that was in mint condition untill someone tipped it over yesterday. now it has a mark on the back tail and a scratched area above the headlight about the size of a silver dollar. i have no idea how to fix it with out it looking like shit. it has never been tipped over before. the red on the front is a unique color and i think it will be hard to match

can you guys please help me out, i dont know what to do!!!!

Nail polish. Sounds cheesy, but I've found there's a plethora of female war paint available that's stronger and more durable than my kevlar armor jacket....works really well on doing minor touch ups. Size of a silver dollar, eh? Apply painter's tape around the affected area, get some ultra fine sandpaper and smooth down the paint (just a little!). You can apply primer and PPG (my favorite) paint, or some good old fashioned Revlon nail polish (for small jobs only!). Good luck.

Go see your local automotive paint store and see if they can match it up and then use a mach 00 striping brush ....if the area is small? Larger repairs will need to be sprayed and then you'll be spending some $$$$. Im in the paint and detail supply business if anyone has a similar problem.Some/most bike colors are extremely clean and often kandys,but we'll try to help and have matched lots of cars,bikes over the years :)

another option is a company called Color-Rite that makes OEM paint products...I believe they sell touch-up pens. I know they sell the paint in spray cans. I've used the spray cans before with good results.
