Very minor scuff on my muffler from strapping the bike in for a trip. Anyone know of a flat black, high heat paint that will match really well? Home depot has rustoleum flat black 2000 degrees spray paint. I could try that but curious if anyone has touched up their muffler?

You could try it, then just paint the whole thing if it doesn't match....or try a test spot on the bottom or inside.

AutoZone or equivalent auto parts location. VHT header paint. Choose your color. Remove muffler from R3. Suggest removal of heat guards. Lightly sand factory finish with red Scotchbrite pad. Remove dust with microfiber or tack rag. Mask tip and any other areas. Follow spray and curing directions on can. Rustoleum is good stuff but my experience is that it’s Really Flat and goes gray quickly. BBQ grill like. Any of this stuff has to be properly heat cured in cycles to last. Check out some products from Eastwood restoration supplies too.
