Some scratched up the fly screen on my S1W. I'd like to reprint it with a rattle can. Looking online I think it's black magic but I remember reading somewhere that the 98 Buell black paint was a dead match for one of Fords black paints. Anyone have any info on this or suggestions where I can get good quality/match rattle cans from at a good price?

Thanks

is it a metallic color? Black magic is metallic and carbon black is a solid color. if its carbon black then yes Ford UA is the same thing...

Thanks. It's not metallic so I guess it's carbon black. Which Ford black is the same? Does it have a name or just a code?

The black on all S1's - including S1W's - was not metallic. Therefore they were Carbon Black:

Carbon Black S1W


Black Magic - the metallic black - was used on S3 models and if memory serves only in 1997.
