I had my bike painted a month ago and dropped a small object 5inches above tank and small chip flew off. I have never seen paint chip that easy. I am going back to have it fixed but my question is does it sound like maybe the paint didnt adhere well? It didnt hit hard at all and seemed brittle.

Yes you definately have an adhesion problem. Did the primer come off too or just the paint color and clear?

i have 4 or five chips in the tank paint down to the metal like it was nothing. curling around the edges too. def sounds like an adhesion problem, i think i'm going to have mine repainted.

I cant tell the tank was black before and i see black and white in it. This was a 1200 dollar paint job do you think I should say something about a possible adhesion problem? I dont want to pay to have it fixed if its possibly their fault but im not an expert either.
