So, I've found some rock chips on the fenders for my Shadow and was going to buy a colorrite pen to fill in, but its giving me me guff about picking a primer. Its to fill a nick, why do i need to prime? My 919 is the same color, so i can use it for that, but do i need to prime? Anyone have any experience with these?

Well, in Christchurch New Zealand there is a really good paint shop that will match the factory paint code (on the frame under the seat) and fill up a little bottle that has a brush in the top (kind of like a nail polish bottle) of that paint.
So for $12 you can touch up all your stone chips with actual colour coded vehicle paint :001_smile:
Back to your question - unless there is rust visible on the base of the chip just carefully touch it up, let dry and polish.
On a interesting side note the Honda code for my bike (gloss black) came up with a name of:
Darkness Black - F-me, how cool is that name!
My XR6 Ford is Venom Red, also cool.
My Mitsubishi has some boring name to describe 'white'!
I would play around with the candy glory red aerosols I got from colorite, but at $34/can, I have to decline. I would just go with the color and call it good.
Actually, I just bought another aerosol can of color and it told me the same thing. Just click through it and go to your cart. Bastards only fill about half the can with color. I have plenty of primer, base and clear left from my side panel project but the color went to E before I finished the second side panel.
