    Exclamation Duplicolor match for Titan Silver '07 R1200RT

    I want to repaint the side cases on my '07 RT. Looking for a good match for 764 Titan Silver Metallic paint in a Duplicolor Spray can. (Last resort will be ordering Colorite, but I'd rather pick something up locally.) Suggestions?

    Can't help with a Duplicolor number that would get the job done, but I have another source for do-it-yourself spray can paint, should you wish to try it.
    It's RS Motorbike paint at www.rsbikepaint.com from the UK. They can fix you up with color and clear spray cans you're looking for. I bought some paint from them and was pleased with the customer response and info they provided, and they use paypal. Can't comment on color match, mine was also Titan Silver, since I will have the work professionally sprayed over the winter.

    Dave,

    Please read: http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=46055

    I've added this info in the hope that someone with an '07 R1200RT with titan silver may open the thread.

    Dunno if it's the same, but "Titan Silver" was a popular BMW car color in the early 2000's.. (my M-Coupe is Titan Silver). There are also custom paint places that will match almost any color, in dab-it-on bottles and spray cans. The glossy silver colors BMW used also have a clearcoat that will change the color, so it's really needed if you're doing more then a chip.

    Dave,

    Went searching the web, as I sometimes have to very specific in doing motorcycle appraisals and the color (colour) description has to be exact along with codes. Found this and I hope it can shed some light on your search:

    R1200R paralever color 2007

    In this discussion on silver color, it reminded me of a scratch on my 2007 R1200R's paralever. In this discussion on sources of paint has anyone information on a rattle can paint match or other less expensive sources ? I'd say this would be considered a chassis color...any feedback would be appreciated.
