Default Touch-Up Paint - Foot Peg Bracket

I was testing the Gravitational Pull within an enclosed area theory and discovered cinder block, shingles, and a metal roll-up door do not diminish it's effects.
Tipped the bike over inside my own garage. Dammit.
Scratched the foot peg bracket.
These things have a color code I know is the same on the 03 and 07 models, the only ones I checked, so I will assume it is the same color on all years.
NH146M - Accurate Silver Metallic.

I know Color Rite but did you know our friends at Amazon sells it as well.
Labeled as Color Rite Off-Road Paint. Carries the Honda paint code number,
$18.95 a can. WoW the cost of gravity testing is high.
Makes some sense as the Honda dirt stuff has silver lots of silver paint areas.

Anyone ever paint their foot peg mounts?
Touch-Up or Total repaint?

No, we don't fall into cinder blocks, just fall off the air lift, to the floor.

I was not on the lift but got lucky the ST went over on it left side.
A right side tip-over would have put serious damage on the YellowWing as the windshield would have hit about center of it's fake tank, fiberglass sides, and trashed both the ST's windshield and chances are good the guide rails for the up/down.

I sat there staring at a rapidly expanding fuel spill, it always happens just after you fill the tank, long enough to determine I need a new parking arrangement for both.

They will no longer be parked side by side.
Whichever one is next up to ride will sit dead center.
The other can observe from it's perch on the lift.
Basically one behind the other with plenty of room to walk around both, check tire pressure, oil, whatever the normal pre-ride check list for both.
When the ride is over park the bike under the covered patio open the garage door and wheel the next ride out onto the ramp then drive the other in and on the lift. Don't need to put it up in the air.
Roll the other onto it new 3/4 inch board under the rear tire and it's up on the center stand easy, much easier.

A lot more room to wander about in the garage without bumping either ones mirrors. Should have done it long ago.

Lifting a tipped over ST on a painted garage floor is not a easy task.
The rear tire gets little to no traction on paint.
Dropping the pressure to 20 pounds helped but it still wanted to slip until it was about halfway up.

Back into it use your legs method employed, as it was the last time, and the time before that.

Third tip-over will have been a charm, if it's the last one.
Parking lesson learned so it's all good.

Total extent of damage.
I had the footpeg lowering kit on.
It got folded up and spring jumped over it's "guide" and scratched a half inch or so of the peg mount.
No big deal and unnoticeable unless you are searching for unnecessary damage you caused.

Sorry for your loss (of paint).

Two possible solutions: Use a second party (wife, friend) to stand on the wheels while you lift. They should give it enough bit to stay still. OR, and I think this is preferable, use sand in the paint.

Kinda late for sand in the paint. 20 year old paint.
Sand on the paint I removed then washed it down with gasoline.

It was if the plague had been discovered on the block.
No one was home anywhere, the ever expanding gas spill convinced the cat to find other accommodations, even the birds headed south for their winter jaunt.
I'm all alone. Just me and my resting ST.

I understand that.
I did not do that when I painted the floor and there is no way to retrofit sand on 20 year old paint.
I never thought I would be tossing a 700 pound beast on the floor.

I thought a quick broom and mop might clean the floor enough to help with traction but I don't think you can get enough clean for the ST to forgive the indignity of being dropped in it's own house.
It cried gasoline and refused to stand.

It's all better now.
It's upright and on a fully extended lift ruler of all it surveys.

No, you can't retrofit dry paint, but you can paint again, and put grit in it the second time.

It was a suggestion for "next time".

I painted the floor about 20 years ago when the body could tolerate much more abuse.
It is a checker board pattern with two foot squares aligned to be centered in both doors.
Total time was three weeks, acid etch the floor, lay out the pattern, apply the paint.
Acid etch/clean with Muriatic Acid, four days drying time.
The entire floor is painted white, four day drying time.
The pattern is taped off.
Taping off the pattern requires you to be on your knees for a extended time on concrete. It becomes obvious fairly quickly you can only paint every other square and the realization of the pain in the knees, even with knee pads is only half over.
Four days drying time.
Pull the tape and do it all over again.
Now the knees are in complete protest.
Paint the second sets of black squares.
Four days drying time.

It turned out beautiful but it is a lot of work involved.
It needs to be repainted.
That will NEVER happen again.

Any new concrete anywhere at this house will be dyed then sealed.
Sand applied with the dye.
