    Honda R345C Candy Alizarin Red

    Has anyone found a close color match for Honda's R345C Candy Alizarin Red? I've got a 2014 CTX700 in this color and would like to paint the color match top plate on a Shad top box to match, but found out they want $134 per pint for the OEM Honda paint! That's nuts! Anyone dealt with this...

    Trade NC700X for NT700V?
