Heya guys,

This is for the paint guru's or people that know about the paint on the Fury. I was wondering what the paint code for the metallic silver for the Fury and also opinions of how it was painted (black base coat, siver base coat, pearl top coat of any kind... etc.).

I am about to start touching up my bike and the scratches, also going to paint another rear fender for the the bike (fill in the screw hole with some fiberglass and paint over it). And would like to get opinions and Part numbers before I started. Thanks in advance!

RSS,

On an earlier post, 'Colorrite.com' was said to have the factory paint. Yours would be Digital Silver Metallic #2134. However, I'm not sure that Colorrite Paint is actually used at the factory. PPG Makes all HD paints and yet Colorrite shows Harley colors in their palet. I will be getting the PPG codes soon and if you want them just let me know or I will also post them.


The silver metallic requires no base coat but if you are refinishing for scratches, etc. or painting a rear fender, the part needs to be primed before the metallic base is put down. (It must be one color - usually gray) Then you would clearcoat after 1 hr @ 70 degrees with urathane clear (automotive) Touch up paint is entirely different!

Steps for painting:
1. Wax and Grease cleaner as directed.
2. Wet sand with 300
3. Apply spot putty on your small intentations and sand smooth after drying
4. Tack dust and spray filler/primer/sealer gray 2 coats w/dry flash time between coats.
5. Let dry overnite (You can paint after1 Hr. but I find for MC parts the following works best)
6. Wet sand primer with 600 grit (a few drops of Dawn soap in 1/2 gal water)
7. Rinse with clear water and Let completely dry
8. Tack dust and paint with your Silver Base (usually 2-3 light coats to cover)
9. After 1 hr. apply clearcoat as follows:

1. Very light bond coat. (Turn gun down as it barely covers)
2. After 15 min , hit with a wet coat --- don't let run
3. After 15 min, hit with a wet coat ---- don't let run
4. Empy your clear mix and add approx 25% reducer - stur and put back in gun.
5. Spray final coat (The extra reducer will make it very smooth)

After 24 hrs. you can wet sand (color sand) with 1500 then 2000 grit wet.
Buff with finishing compound and high speed buffer to a mirror finish.

I know: a lot of steps! But the results are better than factory!
Need futher assistance just let me know. Too cold to paint here (10-20 degrees!).

OOPS>>>>>>


On step 4 of the clear - I ment empty the clear into a container - add 25% more reducer , stur and put back into gun. Sorry but that part wasn't too clear , huh?

I have a paint booth but don't usually paint unless the outside temps are above 40 degrees (too expensive to heat booth and shop up). I still use autoair airbrush paints in a small heated area of the shop as some of my artwork takes weeks, but auto paints do require the right temps and skill!

Awsome, thanks for the heads up! Definite reader here! :cool: Another quick question for you, what airgun or airbrush do you recommend and also, the air tank... what do you recommend there? Glad to be living in San Diego, can mess around with the bike year round :D

If you have the fender off, there is a sticker under the seat that has the color codes, Honda gets the paint from US Paint, the Honda code is NH-A54M here is the link to US Paint http://www.uspaint.com/pdf/Aftermarket%20Mixing%20and%20Application%20Guide%20AJ1076.pdf
My fender is at the painters right now having the sissy bar holes filled before new paint, he told me DO NOT use fiberglass as it will shrink up and pop out, especially since the fender is so "flexible" but to use an ABS filler.
I have used Colorite and the color was spot on (it was dark red) on my Goldwing.

Another link for US Paint http://www.uspaint.com/paints/aftermarket-paints.asp

NOTE this is the wrong info, paint cods is NHA30M

Right on... glad to know about the fiberglass as well (I had planned on fiberglassing about 6 to 8 inches around the hole if that helps any or changes the situation? 1 to 2 layers), and luckily I purchased another fender to do my fill work on, so I can have one fender with the sissy bar holes (which I will clean up the scratch marks on and one bare bone fender to paint up and make purdy with no holes :cool: ...

He showed me my fender yesterday, he had put approx 2x2 squares of matte under the fender beneath each hole with an epoxy resin, and was going to fill in the holes with an ABS resin then sand and prime and paint, then he will lay out the new paint and have me look at it.

Great information on this site!! Love it!

RSS.... I use a touch up gun. If your not a painter and don't want to invest $$$ in a pro gun, Lowes has a touch up gun with a side mount cup that is a great little gun and works just fine. Can't remember the brand but it's in a blue and white box and should be on display. The cup attaches on the side which gives you a clear view of what you're shooting.

With small motorcycle parts, a touch up is all you need. Easier to clean and work with .

I shoot at about 45 lbs pressure (at the tank) and 55 lbs for the clear. With a drop in pressure on your hose you should be about right. You would have to have a compressor to keep up with that. Most will say what the constant CFM's are.

I pulled up the site but could not get a non-corrupted file. I also looked at the color names and they didn't coincide with Honda's color names. Also, the codes listed did not match with NH-A54M???????

Could you tell me the USPaint codes and names for the Fury? I would like to cross reference these numbers.

Thanks in advance!

Clueless and all,

US Paint does not make the Fury paint..... They only do the OEM paint for Goldwings. (just got off the phone with the factory) I am working to find out the OEM paints on the Fury to post the codes / mfg / ect and possible cross numbers for all you out there who need to paint to match.

Didn't see your post till just now, Colorite has it, the code is NHA30M, it may not be made in the US now that the factory is in Japan,

ARRRRRRGHHGGGG!!!!!!

Colorrite is not the OEM paint either. Dealer doesn't know either....GEEZ! I've got most every paint code for Harley, Victory, Indian, etc. but can't seem to get HONDA!

I guess I'll just have to ride every color Fury to PPG and have them scan it to match! What are you doing on Saturday???? hahahaha

Lol... glad I asked about the paint code... cause, being I'm a beginner and had gone out to try and look for this paint, I probably would have dug myself a hole right next to Watson... Sherlock Holmes would be having fun with this... Well, if you guys get it figured out, that would be great! Thanks for figuring these things out for us simpletons!

Colorite doesn't supply Honda, but they have the paint, I talked to 2 Honda folks this afternoon and they also thought US supplied Honda ALL the paints, they may not be wholeselling it tho.
If you can wait a week or so, I will find out what my painter is using and get the info to you, (I think he uses alot of DuPont) he said mine should be done early next week, he is doing alot of deer/snow repair right now

Clueless, If you find out before I do, see if you can get all the codes not just the silver.... Thanks.

I have a feeling that your painter may be using a cross # from DuPont which is allright too if the matches are good.
