Use a small amount of paint thinner and a stiff brush. If you make sure and wash off the paint thinner when you are finished it should not harm any unpainted items it comes in contact with. If you choose to leave the paint there it won't affect your cooling much unless it was put on so heavy that it blocks the cooling fins on the head (pretty unlikely).

Heavy duty oven cleaner works great. With a cold engine, spray it on and leave it longer than the can says to leave it on the oven. When you rinse, the paint will come right off with it and it won't hurt any of the metal. Just make sure you don't get the cleaner on anything you don't want to remove the paint from as it will take ALL paint off!

Looking for the paint numbers for a blue 77


There is poor documentation on these bikes. A lot of the charts show the GT750's but dont specify the GS.

This chart (link below) is the best you will find, there are a LOT of blues! It may help narrow it down. Perhaps you can take a list of the blues and paint codes and google for paint chips or take them to an autobody supply shop. Hopefully you have something with the original paint for comparison. http://www.ozebook.com/compendium/suzi/suzicolr3.pdf

Best of luck!

Im lookingg for paint codes for the black and grey green paints for retouching


I dont think kawasaki do paint codes go to a auto paint supplier and get a colour match,if it is not right you usually get a second match for free.or contact a quality motorcycle paint spray company they may have the code sorted from past jobs.

Why does the paint peel off of my valve covers on my 2004 bmw gs adventure i only have 5000 miles. i am the first owner and i dont ride it that hard.


Problem with alloys they have a hard time excepting paint. You need a good acid etch then primer and top coat. FinishMaster stores carry all of the stuff u need. Upol has great acid etch and primers, any good semi gloss paint over top will work

Painting problem for 1979 Yamaha XS650


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

Paint protection


It sounds as if you are willing to do the right thing and get it coated or painted, right? What you need is not necessarily a clearcoat, but a better paint. Unless you use urethane paint, like they use on today's bikes, gas will dull or melt your tank paint. I'm not saying you can soak the think in gas, but you can spill fuel all over it, and just wipe it off without damage. Needs to be the top quality, urethane based auto paint. Costs more than the old DuPont Imron, but it's well worth it, looks great, and is gas-proof with or without the accompanying clear layer. I have restored many old bikes, and finally found out the hard way, not to scrimp on the tank paint! Good Luck. TT

Painting the tank


and am thinking of spraying them in the silver colour scheme. However did any other colour apart from red ever get imported,Apart from red and silver I know of at least two other colours - Green and a very 70's Turqoise (at least that's the best description I can come up with). I re-sprayed the green one I had to black, but still have the turquoise tank and panels.,,,
