Can someone tell me the size, etc. of the sparkplug socket for my vmax? I am going to buy one tomorrow. I know it is really narrow cause there is not much room down in the sparkplug hole. Guess I will go to Harbor Freight.
Also, does anyone know the factory vmax black paint code, or manu.? I am going to buy a small quantity of it from the automotive paint store. My vmax is a 98.
The ColorRite paint (004B) is $87 for 8 ounces and it requires Base 1492, same price. So for touching up the engine, I'd be looking at minimum $180. Did not really want to spend that much.
My idea was to buy the deluxe air brush from Harbor Freight (very good reviews) and to put back the paint where faded off of the engine and other spots. I think the air brush idea is good, it is just the high cost of the ColorRite paint.
A problem I will have using a rattle can is overspray and not being able to direct a small spray pattern in those small areas.
If you have repainted vmax engine parts (while still on the bike) and had success using paint other than ColorRite, write a reply and tell me the paint.
This is the last step in rejuvinating this long sitting 98. Thanks!
