Arrow Color Matching my swingarm?

Question for the guru's,

I have a few scratches on my 06 R6 Swingarm that I'd like to sand down and touch up. But what color paint should i use that would match best.


the only suggestion i've heard so far is Krylon Semi-black (rattle can). will this work or does anyone have some other or better suggestions?

I'm against pink unless it's entirely called for. In this case, I think not.

BUT - I am for anything you can do to color up your bike. We need photo shopped pics in order to make an educated opinion.

That's some bs dude. I bought the colorrite spray paint that matches the gsxr frame. Took the bike apart. Sanded and cleaned it up and put 3-4 coats on it and it is still perfect after 2 years of abuse

Can you honestly describe a scenario where pink is entirely called for? Besides Breast Cancer Awareness of course.

Tim's pink wheels on the gixxer.
Saw it in person once and it's very cool.
