Hi all, I am trying to find the exact paint for my 2016 Instinct BC edition to touch up a few nasty chips on the frame. I tried the shop at bikes.com, googling, ... Anyone knows where to order paint?

It's this exact bike: https://www.bikes.com/en/bikes/instinct/2016
I'd like to order both, the green and the lime/yellow paint.

Greetings from Switzerland!

Update 21 Feb: the RM customer service got back to me, advising that I should contact a local RM dealer who will be able to order the paint. Let's see if they can actually get it.

Good to know. Thanks for following up.

Short update: the local dealers either told me to contact RM directly, or they contacted RM without getting a response...

So, where do I get the colour codes from? Nobody seems to be having them among the local dealers, and RM is not giving them out.

Any progress? I need 19 instinct orange.

Last year I messaged them on Facebook with a pretty specific question. Took them a day or two to respond, but they were able to track down the exact information I needed.

You might try them to see if they can steer you in the right direction.

I wound up matching mine to nail polish and using a clear coat on top. The finish was hard to match but it got a pretty nasty wound out.

Rocky actually sells touch up paint. Your local dealer just needs to e-mail them. Rocky was right, your dealer was wrong.

Can we confirm this is still how it goes ? I am needing to find paint for 2020 altitude in the brown sparkle. Just picked it up and without inspecting it out of sheer excitement noticed it had a small chip in top coat when i got home.

Contacted the lbs that I bought from and they said that RM doesn’t supply paint anymore but that they will still try.

The answer for years and years was no but we were able to get some vials of orange this year for a few customers
