When I get the bike back to Van in Jan, I want to get a blemish on my swingarm painted. Seems like its really easy to scratch the R6 swingarms; mine has a blemish half the size of a credit card, courtesy of a mis-mounted pipe. I just need the blemish fixed, not going some crazy colour or something. Who can do this at a decent price in the GVA?

We had colorworks do the job for a customer that had boot scuffs on the swing arm and the paint match was perfect. Give John a call 778-288-0223 he was really good and even did a s500 merc bumper for us, can't remember the price sorry.

about $150 sandblasted and coated ,ask for black magic color

it wil cost you more to paint it anyway ,and powdercoat can be wetsanded and polished so dont worry if the finish isnt as smooth right away like paint would be .

Awesome. The paint on my bike is flat black - engine, frame, and the swingarm. I think powdercoating would be a near perfect match!

yours is not flat ,its semi gloss ,and the blackmagic color he has is basically the same . go to his shop with your arm and ask to see a part done in that BM color you'll see for yourself .

I got to second the powdercoat if you can take your swing arm off and pound out the bearings and wait a week to have it together. I've got wheels they are doing for me and rainbow powdercoat is by far the best, they can do some real neat flourencent colors that glow. But if you want a touch up it'l cost you alot less than what your about to do and I've got some hard K on my 05 r6, 30,000k's and the swing arm looks new. You've got options, but for the extra time and money powder over paint anyday
