Question about 1979 Yamaha XS 650 F

Painting problem for 1979 Yamaha XS650

I tried painting my motorcycle frame (after sanding it very well) with both primer and Krylong Gloss Black spray paint, but when the paint is sprayed on the old paint, it becomes all mottled up like it is destroying the old paint underneath. Is there a special type of paint that I can use that won't damage the old paint? Thanks for any advice you can give. Tim

WHAT YOU HAVE IS A CHEMICAL REACTION THIS USUALY HAPPENS WHEN CELULOSE IN THE PAINT ATTACKS USUALY ACRYLIC PAINT WHEN THIS HAPPENS THE ONLY THING I WOULD RECOMEND IS HAVING THE FRAME OLD PAINT EITHER BURNED OFF WITH A BLOW TORCH OR HAVING IT SHOT BLASTED AND POWDER COATED WICH IS NOT THAT EXPENSIVE AND IT IS FAR SUPERIOR TO HAND SPRAYING AND LASTS FOR A VERY LONG TIME WITH A TOUGH FINISH

Probably you should use a good primer over the old paint. Two coats of primer should give you a paintable surface that won't be affected by the old pain and the chemical reaction problem. Good luck, let the forum know how the job goes.

WHAT KIND OF PAINT DO I USE TO PAINT A FOOTBALL HELMET?


Clean well/ dry completely. Lightly sand with a fine grade of sandpaper, apply either Fusion" spray paint by Sherwin Williams (Krylon) . It does a great job sticking to plastic without primer, and also has a durable finish. The finish is glossy, but not with much depth. To achieve that deeper wet look, add a coat or two of Krylon's Gloss Polyurethane.

Old elec. wiring is showing verdigris ( grease ) on the plaster surface! what do I seal the surface before painting?


ask your "local paint store" manager first...
if they do not know, I suggest washing down the wall, scratching it lightly with sandpaper after it is dry, then apply an alcohol based primer to seal the grease. I would then prime with a good latex primer before final coating. If you are painting pastels, or very dark colors (red, Blue, Black), tint the primer toi as close to the color you want.
Good luck

How do i spray my quinny zapp frame black?and what type of paint?


Hi

Quinny would not advise the spray painting of the chassis.

Due to the way the chassis folds down, spray painting it may cause fold and unfold problems.

It would invalidate any remaining warranty on the product.

Paint colour for 1973 tx750 yamaha


Can duplicate the 73 paint but it is gold candy over silver metal flake.
  1. apply Grey primer sealer
  2. apply silver base coat, apply 3 coats
  3. apply silver metal flake mixed with clear, about 3 coats
  4. apply about 2 coats heavy clear
  5. sand clear smooth because metal flake makes it rough
  6. apply about 3 coats of tinted clear (candy gold or yellow)
  7. let it dry, inspect it, wet sand with 600 or finer
  8. apply final coats of clear to all parts except the fuel tank, apply only one coat to tank
  9. lightly wet sand the tank
  10. paint the gold and black striping on the tank, don't have any stickers and paint is thinner
  11. apply 3 medium coats of clear to the tank
  12. west sand with 1200 grit and polish all parts
  13. mix huge glass of good tequila, get lawn chair, sit back and admire
hope this helps

What is 2001 yamaha yzf 426 paint code, it is the steel frame with the blue paint. Cheers.


Frame color:
Deep Purplish Blue Metallic C (DPBMC)
This is Yamaha's color designation which is a dead end since they don't sell paint. Try Colorrite.com as they specialize in motorcycle oem match paint. This color is a 2-step process and requires the correct color primer to come out right. Color rite can fix you up with the proper coatings.

Engine painting


A light coat wont bother but heavy coats do raise engine temp by up to 10-20 degrees.
