As usual, I apologise if this topic has been covered. If so, please re-direct me. I have an '07 Adventure 990 "S" (the blue one), and as advertised, the paint basically just flakes right off. If you've never seen it on this bike, it's pretty pathetic: just a moderate finger nail scratch, and a hunk about the size of half a dime will flake right off. About a square foot total (all added up) is gone from the bike. Since this apparently happened on many, many of these bikes, did/does KTM do anything about it? I'd like to re-paint the bike, but in the stock colors. I will be doing all of the prep-work myself, but will leave the actual painting to my professional auto-painter nephew. How do I figure out the original paint color? Or, do I just have to try to match it? Was the flaking paint issue inherent in the paint, the primer, the prep-work, or the plastic itself (meaning, if I re-paint this thing, will the new paint just come right off again?). Can anybody that has done this job recommend a specific type of paint for the plastic/metal that this bike is made of? Any specific advice would be greatly appreciated, from someone with actual experience. I might want to change the color, but there is something asthetiically pleasing about re-painting it in the color that KTM though was correct (even if it was NOT orange--What was that all about?). Also, any advice about making the prep-work easy would be great. I did read the "project creep" thread, and there was some good advice about removing the stickers. Also, is there typically clear-coat over the stickers? It seems like it, but I'm no expert. Thanks to all in advance!
