Re: How to fix scratch on frame?

I have a scratch on the frame of my brand new 954. *It is almost the size of a dime. *Not deep, however you could feel it if you used you fingernail. *I was wondering as to how I can fix this. *I am pretty sure the frame is Power coated and not painted, right? *And if it is Power Coated how can I fix my frame scratch? *Thanks for all the input.

Re: How to fix scratch on frame?

Unfortunately not I do not have a digital camera. *However the scratches are about the area the size of a dime and you can see silver on some of them. *It is more than one scratch it is several of them in a small area. *Hope this helps out. *Thanks.

Felt marker? I used one for a scratched case cover on my old 900 and it worked pretty well - not perfect, but made it much less obvious. Only cheapo fix I know of...

HP

The black finish on my 954 frame is kind of textured and flat colored. The only paint I can think of that ---might--- be close is a high temp engine paint that gives a more or less 'crackled' finish if you cure it with heat.

See if you can pick up a small spray can of that at an auto parts store, get a scrap piece of aluminum *( a beer can sounds about right.) scuff the finish and test it with various amounts of heat. Do Not 'test' it on your bike....

You may find that with some sanding, you can get it close. ( but I don't think so.....)

If it doesn't work, use a fine flat black paint stick and just hit the parts that show through,
or spend the winter polishing the frame,
or get yourself a Fireblades.org sticker, and slap that baby right over it !

Re: How to fix scratch on frame?

Well it sounds like the paint stick is the way to go. I will give that a try. Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: How to fix scratch on frame?

I use the end of a matchstick dipped in some low gloss paint from a spray can.

Re: How to fix scratch on frame?

Well I am going to give it a try with that match stick idea. That is what i have heard works good on cars and their finish is much smoother than that on my bike. Hope it works out alright. Thanks for all the input.

Re: How to fix scratch on frame?

The frame on the 954 is painted, not powder coated.
I was looking at various paints at WalMart a while back to touch up the rack on my four wheeler when I noticed a can of Rust-Oleum textured paint. It looked pretty good, so I bought it. After spraying the rack, I noticed it was very similar to my 954's frame.
I actually ended up spraying my stock rearsets with it, and the result is a very nice finish that actually looks more like a true powdercoated finish. Oh, and it actually holds up quite well to abuse. Honda should seriously consider painting the racks on their four wheelers with this stuff as opposed to the gloss black that came on (and scratched very easily) the Rubicon.
The 954's frame has a bit of metallic flake in the paint, but it is a very close match.
The can cost somewhere around three or four bucks.
