My '05 Raven has a small ding on the side fo the swingarm that I'd like to touch up.

Is the swingarm painted or powder-coated? If iit's paint, any idea of the best paint match?

Thanks

Also... try using a black sharpie for minor touchups. :yesnod
:iamwithst that's what I did... the color rite place is cool since it'll give you the same color but for something like a small little ding I just cover it up; with a permanent marker. Doesnt' cover it up completely but better than nothing...besides it gives your bike character.:thumbup

Thanks. I thought that might be the way to go, but wanted to check first.

Color-Rite suggests using their "Eggshell Clear" over that paint. Apparently, it reduces the gloss of the black paint and reproduces the factory paint better.

Have you tried it?
