paint match for primary,cam and sprocket covers 4 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello,
Got my hands on original primary cover, cam and sprocket covers. Too bad they were powdercoated with a heinous shade of gray. Gonna strip them. But not sure what color paint would be the best match to the original. Any ideas would surely be appreciated. Thanks!

I am also looking for paint for my covers.
I think the 82-85 XLX had the same paint but I am not sure.
Some of the Big Twins also had flat silver painted engine covers. Sometimes you can find these on Ebay.

Also, I suspect there is a primer coat, possible zinc chromate.
