well, maybe the area was just too big, or mayber it was just a bad batch. however, the pens i bought to touch up the tank of my orange 08 just looked downright bad. there was just no orange to it at all. i bought the base the color, and the clearcoat, and it was just a mess. definitely would not recommend if youre doing a something other than the tiniest of tiny scratches on your bike. will post pics of how it turned out for me. area was roughly the size of a penny

Have to agree with you. I bought the touch up pen and was really disappointed after waiting a week for it to arrive. I followed the insructions and the paint didnt adhere to the surface properly and just kept dripping. I guess it will work on thin scratches.

Did you guys pick up the primer too?
Not the base coat, but primer that color rite offers? A friend told me that paint wont stick to plastic (our fairings) unless you have some kind of chemical primer.

I'm considering ordering from colorite but held off when I realized that my order went from a base color and top color to base, top, primer, and clear coat. I also couldnt decide between pens and pots.

No I did not get the primer, I just got what they instructed for me which was those 3 pens. Perhaps youll have better luck with that. I thought about getting a jar because the price wasnt much different. Oh well just have to buy a non repair job tank :/

So...what touch up pens/brushes do you use? Particularly for a matte/pearl on the Graffiti? I had the ColorRites (base/paint/clear) for my '06 Blue F4i and the paint always came out way too dark even with small scratches. Hated them.
