    Generic silver paint? K12RS

    I've noticed the fork sliders on my 2003 K12RS are beginning to show their 50k miles, and could use a good fresh coat of paint. I'm wondering if anyone has found a good source/brand of rattle can silver that would closely match the color used by BMW?

    I've used this paint to cover a gas stain on the K1200RS engine cases.
    It also matches the wheels.

    Thanks Lee.
    Is that paint's color spec'ed somewhere? I don't see it on the label shot.

    The label on the can does not show anything.
    Websites show it's a match for BMW silver wheels.
    I got my first can from a BMW motorcycle dealer in the 90s when he scratched one of my wheels during a tire change.

    My picture shows the old label. GTRider's links show what the new label looks like.
