Default Touchup paint for Sunset Red CC

Need help! Discovered a 2" scratch on one of my bag lids and losing some serious sleep over it. Does anyone know of any touch-up that will blend in? I have a 2013 CC Sunset red.

Thanks

I have the same bike/color....

I have tried touch up paint from...

Victory P-520 Sunset Red

Results were not great.

I have two solutions for you....

Forget about the scratch...its now "broken in"

Or

Buy my mint condition sunset red bag lids, problem solved....

I bought some touch up from the dealer for some minor rock chips, matched well enough that unless you get close and sit and seriously search, you cannot tell there were ever any chips. A large scratch may not be hidden as well, but if it don't, it's not like you couldn't then have a body shop fix it. Unless it's a show bike (ie trailer queen) a few scrapes and scratches are to be expected if you actually ride it, I agree, it's now broke in, and unless your trying to sell it, don't worry about it, bags are plastic, they wont rust.

I got an official small container from the dealer (for something like $10 -- I forget) a few years ago; click on pic below. It's okay for a tiny nick, if you don't gob it on too much. I have a couple of front-fender nicks that I tried it on, but then gobbed it up too much, and wound up wiping it off... and just living with the nicks. OTOH, I have a couple of chipped off spots on the saddlebag lid edges, and the touch-up brush worked okay there.

I had a rig veer off the side of the highway in front of me a couple of years ago and through small rocks all over me. Put about 6 small chips in a 4 inch area on my left saddlebag. I bought the sunset red vic touch up paint and it did not work out very well, looks worse than before! This paint is 2 or 3 stage and is not easily fixed with touch up paint.

I was behind a dump truck and couldn't get out from some rock debris he was leaving . It put a few small chips in my front fairing in the black part of the flames ... I lost a day or two sleep but have much bigger things to worry about all in all . Heck I wouldn't even ride my bike in the beginning unless I washed it and wiped it down , now I just ride it for the most part . At least a rock didn't go through my LED headlight , that would really have hurt !

Thanks for all the replies. Sounds like I'm gonna live with it. Its definitely not a show bike "trailer queen" so I'm gonna keep rolling like it is.

Blade,

How deep is the scratch. If you run your fingernail across it will it catch on the scratch? I scratched mine once while getting off of the bike, pretty nasty 9" scratch. I took it to an auto body shop. They took their time and buffed it our with a professional grade buffer. Almost looked like it melted the paint in place. I know where the gash was so I can see remnants of it (slight dip along the previous scratch line) but to the untrained eye..you would never know. I would recommend taking it to the body shop and forgo the touch up paint. Never seen real good results with the touch up paint.
