    Default Please help!!!

    My fiancee's dad crashed my hayabusa yesterday, he has be riding longer then I have been alive so I thought I could trust him on it, boy o boy was I wrong! Well what I need help with is when I bought the bike the guy told me the paint was custom so my question for you guys basically is...is it really a custom paint job? If not where could I find the fairings to match? are these at least OEM colors that can be easily matched? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    That is not an original color scheme. The silver just might be oem colors, and the maroon might be oem colors, but that color scheme with those two colors is not factory. Sorry about the crash and welcome to the oRg. Never ever let anyone ride your busa. Oh, and I am not sure what the silver is, but the maroon might be Candy Sonoma Red. What year is the bike?

    Youre not the first to have dad/dad-in-law crash their Busa. It's custom paint. Any good automotive paint supply place will have a paint scanner. They will scan the paint on the bike and it will provide the recipe for mixing the pigments.

    Definitely not OEM colours. Look on the bright side: you now have the opportunity to repaint it in a better colour scheme.
