Engine Case Paint Color?

Recommended Posts

I slipped when I was trying to adjust my rear shock preload and put a pretty big scratch on the top of my engine cover.  It's not in a spot where it is easily seen but I want to touch up the bare metal.  Does anybody know what color of high temp engine paint is a close match?

Which part of the engine? The crankcase is a metallic graphite and the side covers are a reddish-gold hue, almost metallic bronze.

Actually a closer look at the crankcase... It's more of a metallic graphite color. I don't know the "official" color, but I'm sure a trip to an auto parts store, will net you a color match or close enough.
