    Does anyone know a modern (i.e. available) paint or paint code that is a close match to the ZL900 red color? I have a few small chips in my tank that I'd like to touch up. I realize that a perfect match to this color is very difficult, but I assume a reasonably close match on such a small area will be good enough..certainly better than the current chipped condition. Any help is appreciated.

    :hello: What I would do is take a side cover to an Auto Parts Store and match it up the best you can.

    It take your cover into somewhere that has a large assortment of nail polish. You may have better luck with the color match than an auto parts store.

    Of course, please post your findings.
