Fork got hit by disc lock

Hi, I just purchased a 2015 GSX-S1000. I forgot to take off my Abus disc lock and push the bike forward a bit, so the lock hit the bracket of the ABS sensor and the bracket chipped, showing the silver color. Then I sprayed a thin layer of 3M 08881 undercoat, I am kind of worry that it will rust. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

That was really lucky, otherwise I have to replace a new fork. I can say the Abus lock is really tough, the lock has only scratches.

Do you mean the bracket won't rust? Or you mean it won't rust after I apply the paint?

Here is the photo of the chipped part

Ah!
Thanks for the pic. That clears up where the actual scratches are. Luckily they are on an aluminium part so they wonít rust. Eventually it will oxide up and the paint could flake but it will be a slow process.
Hammerite paint would look shite on that. I would be more tempted to keep it polished clean to stop any oxidation build up and see how you get on

Very minor, but if it bugs you, go to a beauty supply store and see if you can get a similar color nail polish. Not sure women wear dark grey nail polish, but these days who knows! worth a try. Good touch up paint for something small like that.

RP1 beat me to suggest the nail lacquer. I was thinking a clear non gloss lacquer.

When I use a disc lock I run a cable from the lock and hook it over the brake lever and throttle that way I can't forget it
