    Touch up paint for wheels

    Hi everyone, is there a touch up pen or paint available for the wheels. I had my bike serviced just days before lock down, the 20K service and i had new tyres fitted. I brought the bike home and stuck in my garage. On Thursday there I brought it out and gave it a clean and to my horror discovered that my rear wheel rime has had huge sections of paint scraped off from both sides of the rim. One continuous section is 7" long. I've contacted the dealer who have come back to me denying any fault but to take the bike back so they can have a look. I won't name the dealer at the moment but if it's doesn't go well I'll need to get the rim painted. Thanks, Donald

    The question has been asked numerous times previously,
    and I can't recall anyone having found a suitable matching paint.

    Thatís too bad!
    My rims could use a little attention also, after two tire changes... :155:
    I will try to get an answer from Triumph USA this week.

    I did receive a reply from Triumph USA just now.
    Unfortunately, they are unable to supply any information regarding the paint code for our wheels. All they would say was the wheels are powder coated.

    The passenger grab handles appear to be a similar color, so I asked if they could provide a paint code for those, but I donít have high hopes...  :027:

    Just as a follow-up, Triumph USA was not able (or willing) to provide any information as to the paint code for the grab handles as well.

    Guess they wouldn't have a code for the air vents on the sides of the fairing either.
    First tire change, will repaint wheels, similar to the glossier gray another member had them painted and already have have a little brighter gray paint, when I remove bodywork, for air vents and scrstched up passenger grab rails.

    Similar to wilcos.
