Checking through the net to try to find the paint they use is no go .
Seems like the color they use will remain one of the mysteries of life  :o

Looks like I may have found a match and so far , it looks dam close .
I also found a touch up pen that matches the color .
Only took 6 cans of spray to get a match so hope this saves you guys doing the same thing  ::)
One of the colors I tried which was just not right ,  Squirts : Paint & Prime (pictured here) and although the match was wrong , it actually makes a very good undercoat / primer and adds a really smooth finish to the final spray. So a spray or two with that and finish off with the Ford paint (DSF 94 Blaze Red (Ford) )  ;D and see how it goes  :)

Well I can say that the Ford paint is spot on for a color match .
Wish I could have got some info a bit earlier on and saved myself from trying about 6 different color codes  :o

It is still not perfect but that's down to my skills as a painter not the color match .
I will be letting it dry for a day or so and then giving it a light sand and add one or two coats .
Considering the part you see taped in the first picture was black due to all the paint being scrapped off , it's not too bad ( a lot better than black  ::)) and will look a lot better when finished . The match looks very good .
I have already ordered new fairings anyway but I needed to find a match for that poxy paint color  :o

Looks pretty good from what I can see in the pics.
It's up to you, but after you've flattened it off slightly you could clear coat the whole lot to blend it and give a real glossy wet shine. Or, just go over the lot with a very mild cutting compound and then wax.

Flattening it ? You mean sanding it down ?
What would you do as a next step , I am new to all this painting stuff  ;D

It's difficult to tell from the pics mate, as it actually looks ok from what I can see.
Yes, flattening just means to use a very fine grit to give an absolutely smooth surface and remove any minor imperfections. I don't normally flatten back unless required. Once the colour is on, I'd just clearcoat the lot, making sure that the final coat is a "wet coat".
Or, as I said, you may just get away with leaving as is and just go over with a fine compound. I use stuff called T-Cut, but don't know if you have that down there as products vary country to country.

It's worth a look at that Gunman channel I linked to earlier if you haven't already. Especially for clearcoat application (which you can get in rattle cans)

Cheers buddy  :)
I am surprised how good it turned out , my first go at painting .
It was just a bitch trying to find a color match but we have it now so happy days for all red Hyosung owners
PS I am from the UK so I know what that is   ;D. I suppose I could also use brasso .
Do you think Autosol would be a bit rough as a liquid abrasive ?

Autosol may work tbh, but never tried it. It is quite fine though.

Ill try some T-cut.
Sure I can get it on Fleabay.
I have got new fairings coming anyway but it was a challenge to see if I could do it and I believe in seeing it out to the end , job done  :)
Nobody else seemed to know or was willing to give me the color code match and that is why I was determined to find one for myself . I thought it could help others who needed to paint their bikes themselves   :
