Duplicolor paint match

So for those who also find the need to paint parts on their bike but don't have the resources (usually time) to go to an auto paint shop, I found a paint at pep boys that is super close to stock red. It is what I painted my belly pan with and its too close to even tell its not stock paint.

For those as blind as me here is some text you can copy and then use font's for the blind:

Dupli-Color Perfect Match BGM0398 Bright Red (81 WA8774) Replaces DSGM398.




Dupli-Color says that BGM0398 Touch Up Fits GM Paint Code WA8774 GM Code 81 Bright Red

Soon after the start of this thread, I picked up a can of said paint. While the color is an OK red, it is not a suitable match for Italian Red (R-57). Too much yellow. The orangery red is quite noticeable. Having given it a test ride, I don't recommend it.

The Factory Italian red is a tough beast to match, even "proper" color from a Auto paint guy done on computerized mixing station does not match either of my Red bikes.....it had to be hand mixed to get it right.
If close is good enough, then this info means little.. If you want it to not be distracting, color matching with hand mixing is the only way I've found.. That said, its easier just to have all the panels sprayed with the Italian red mix to original color specs

Duplicolor Paint

Always found ColorRite to be an exact match with reasonable prices and fast shipping. Give them a try!
