Questions for any experienced body work or paint persons out there . . .

I am thinking spraying the painted parts on my black C90 with matte clear and am thinking of using Duplicolor Paint Shop Finish System BSP307, Matte Clear.

I’m looking for a wash and wear finish that doesn’t call for wax.

The gloss paint on my bike is in decent shape, but could use a good buffing (lots of tiny scratches). Last winter I painted the batwing, rear fender, hard bags and trunk. The tank and side covers and front fender are all OEM paint.

Question 1: Is the Duplicolor paint shop line OK, or is there a better or recommended matte clear coat that is proven tough?

Question 2: Should I wet sand or scuff pad the painted surfaces to prepare for the clear coat. If wet sanding is the better approach, what grit?

To the best of my knowledge, Suzuki uses a Urethane based paint on their bikes.
I tried using an off brand clear coat and couldn't get it to adhere to the Suzuki clear coat worth a darn. When polishing it out, it would come off. Finally gave up.
I haven't tried this but it sounds promising.
Color-rite's KK8 Matte/Flat Eggshell Finish Clearcoat

P.S. I'm not a pro...
