Big Blue Touch up Paint

Recommended Posts

Anybody Know how to get some touch up paint to match 'ol Blue. I tore the beast down last night and noticed that on some of the welds the paint has come off where the joints have flexed and the side of the frame where my boots rubbed the paint off (Before Frame Guards) have some surface rust starting. :)

I just couldn't handle ol'Blue with the red cancer..... :D

Also does anyone know the size of the swing arm nut. I know it's bigger than a 21mm, I'll need to buy a socket for it and would rather not by a whole set....

Bonzai..... :D

PJ-1 sells Yamaha blue in a spray can, but its a two step process, @ $6.50 a can, you can order it out of the Chaparall catalog.

I just purchased my can of PJ-1 Yamaha blue from my local dealer. The best price I found was at Hipersports.com @ $5.99 a can. Let's just say that my dealer wouldn't meet their price and I paid $7.75 for the luxury of being able to paint the frame this weekend.

The color is exact and looks great and will be ready for my new frame guards today.

You need the PJ1 Yamaha Blue *AND* the PJ1 White Sandable Primer. If you don't apply white underneath the blue it comes out looking purble. At least that's what my dealer told me anyway.

99.9% sure it is 28mm, same as my YZ125, but I couldn't test as the wr isn't in my garage. I got a set that goes from 19 to 28mm at Sears for 30 bucks and it comes in handy quite often for working on clutches etc.

Get the PJ-1 for touchup, it is awesome, blended perfectly and is an identicle match, I didn't user the white PJ-1 primer cause I didn't know until I got the blue. I used a basic automotive gray primer and the PJ-1 stuck great and the color came out perfect - depending on the year you may also have to get the clear coat to get a perfect match. Any good site that sells it should tell you for your year if you need the clear.
