Title: Silver Paint colours
Post by: Riverman on 20 May, 2020, 01:36:46 PM
Hello
Just a quick enquiry please:
I have a Mk1 in Quasar Silver Metallic.
I’m trying to locate a second hand matching top box and lower fairings (to avoid the additional costs of re-painting to match the bike and Panniers recently purchased)
Was it Sword Silver Metallic used on Mk 2?
Stupid question maybe (Apologies) but is there a world of difference between the two ‘in daylight’? Noticeably different?
Many thanks for your input.
Regards
Riverman

Sword Silver is darker than Quasar, but as for the aesthetics of the blending both on one bike that's subjective.

They are different, by a good margin.  Whether that matters to you (or anyone) is rather subjective.  You'd get away with a top box more than lowers - that said, OE mkII lowers weren't coloured !


My gallery has an sword metallic in it - how you'd compare I don't know.
