    2002 R1150RT Titan silver paint match

    Did my first bodywork last weekend and I'm trying to find a close color match to a 2002 titan silver for Krylon or Rust oleum, something that I can get at a big box store doesn't have to be perfect

    Go to an auto parts store with a sample of the Titan Silver. Pep Boys has a large selection of spray cans. This may help.

    Thanks for the link! I left mine to warm up a bit too long and need to do some respraying to remove the evidence...

    I am surprised there aren't a dozen posts warning you (after the fact} that warm-up is not needed, apart from a few seconds to get the oil circulating and up to pressure. Just ride off gently and let the oil warm that way.
    But now you already know that!

    Yep, another new-to-me owner posted up over on bmwst about doing the same thing and the same advice was given. If only it had been a month or so earlier. Oh well

    Well, they were made to ride, so just go do it and don't worry too much about it.
