Question about 1979 Yamaha XS 650 F
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.
