I bought and used the touch up (blue) after my first low speed drop to fill in quite deep cuts in the pannier covers, hides the whiteness of the scratch but is obvious as a touch up, after a second drop with only scratch damage I now consider the pannier covers as sacrificial and would probably replace with new if I was selling privately, but not before then.

I've read bad things about the ColorRite touch-up paint, but it matches my Pacific Blue 2013 perfectly.

When I got scratches on the panniers I went on Triumph Owners page. There is RS Paints I bought spray touch up and Lacquer  although any decent lacquer should do. But they have Pacific blue. Colour match was OK just prepared the scratches for small spray job.

But as some members say. Battle scars.  :002:

I ordered a replacement pannier cover in the same color (Lunar Silver) for $75.00 US a few months back and the color was a perfect match. Cost was reasonable.
