Black is not that easy. There is something like 33 different shades of black. I have heard Ford black is very close. I would take your front fender to a paint shot that can analyze paints and have them see what they can come up with. Have a body shop paint it and do the hole fender that way it all matches

That's very true. While most blacks will look the same on a cloudy day, once the sun hits the paint, you can see various amounts of other colors reflecting back. Usually blue, which help the black look its best, but the amount of blue and type of blue used varies.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

It should be, however, at least in theory (might or might not be observable by naked eye), even the paint on the same model, same year will vary, due to variances in paint from the factory. So, if you're pursuing perfection, best bet is to have a local paint shop match it - they're good at that.

P.S.: Just like everything else around us, paint ages as well, so there's that factor to consider.

There are different shades of black but I use a jet black DuPont makes on all my black cars I paint unless it's a black met. I paint cars for a living and if I go by the formula for say gm black it won't match in certain lights but the jet black we use is a nice dark black

on a 2012 Victory solid black it is :: V12HA36NA, NAA,NAC,EA
P-266 Black
C Clear
P-585 Tinted Black
SU silver undercoat
So there is a difference and the paint shop can find out.
