Just bought a used 2016 TW200 and need to touch up the swing arm from a battery acid leak. The paint is silver and I am trying to find who sells the matching Yamaha paint so I can do some spot painting and stop further rust - then come winter I'll do a strip down and more thorough paint job. I having been trying to find the paint code info on line with aftermarket suppliers but with no luck. Thanks

http://tw200forum.com/forum/general-discussion/18211-frame-paint-2.html Post #13. Amazon only has it in a 6 pack at the moment, though.
Here is the Wally world link: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Rust-Oleum-Metallic-Finish-Spray-Aluminum/17011175

Lots of places have it, but make sure it is Bright Coat, not just any old Rustoleum.
I think I found it sold as a single can on amazon:

Thanks guys - looks like the Rustoleum option is where I'll start for now just to stop the rust and then based on how it looks decide how far to take additional painting in the winter. I stopped in and talked to the Yamaha boys today and then steered me to the website for Color-Rite - they say this is where they get their paint to repair bikes. The website does not show a silver paint option until you get back to the year 2011 so probably still what they are using today. Their paint kits are pretty expensive so good ole Rust-oleum is looking better and better.

Rust on frame right from the start

The right side of my frame started rusting about two months after new. The guys at the agency said nothing. Now it's a lot worse. I guess Rustoleum is the way to go, especially if I want to sell the bike. Meanwhile, I'm putting some thick marine grease on the rust spots. I wonder if I can get 2,000 for a 2016.

I like Rustoleum Hammered paint. It is supposed to be able to spray right over the rust. I normally sand or wire brush, use Naval Jelly rust killer then spray with the Rustoleum Hammered after the area is dry and ready to be painted. I have painted swingarms and some rusty frames and it worked very well. They have silver.
