Hello,
Any ideas where I can get Royal blue touch up paint for my 1992 k100 R's.I think the paint code is 680.

Try RS Bike Paint
You need to be careful as the p&p can be horrific due to what is being sent. At least, that's what I was told to send it to N. Ireland.
An alternative is to try a local motor factor who can mix paint.
I took my side panel and paint code to one in Belfast who mixed a perfect match while I waited and made up an aerosol.
Cost me £14.
Make sure you have the colour code and not the colour scheme code. They're different.

If you go to Phil Hawksley's site you will get the info needed. I think he works in conjunction with RS Bike Paints http://www.bmbikes.co.uk/colourschemes.htm

Hi Rick,

I've known Phil for many years. As well as his website and forum, he is also in independent BMW specialist (mainly airheads but does work on K's, not so keen on the R1200 models). AFAIK he is not directly associated with RS paints.

Hi badger,

Try googleing Jawel paints, they have franchises throughout the UK. If you take a sample, eg a side panel, they can match the colour and then supply you with an aerosol rattle can. 

This method is sometimes useful if the original colour has faded.

Paul.
