Thanks for the tips. Hadn't thought about powder coating at all. A 30 second internet search seems to show this is actually quite a reasonable option. Might look at it down the road. For now I'll use the touch up pens when they arrive and live with it for a bit and see how much it bothers me.

Bart.    It's definitely not spark black.   I suspect that the colour you require is more dark grey than black.

For years, and on many different bikes Kawasaki have used the same colour .

I bought an aerosol spray can from RS motorbike paint 01226203608 . The reference on the can is        COB KAW  18539 FRM GR MET AER           

I have used this on a few of my Kawasaki's over many years, and it is still the exact colour of the frame on my present MK3.

Good luck with it.      Geoff.  :002:

This is the section after repair


I'm quite happy with it. This was using Kawasaki metallic carbon grey paint. You can see it if you know it's there, but it's close enough to not really bother me and I think most people would never notice
