If there is no gloss "all over" painted surfaces, it is obviously a flat paint...

Enjoy your new ride.

Welcome to the forum. I've only seen that color in pictures, but IIRC, it wasn't real glossy.

matters because I'm curious if its flat or gloss and i have a line on replacements from a bike with a hundred miles and i don't want to waste time or money if i end up getting the same thing. seller hasnt answered my question eitehr. pics of the replacements are hard to tell if their gloss or flat too. i tried rubbing compound but got no luster. the paint feels rough like it was spray painted

There is a gas resistant clear gloss over the paint. Pretty sure rubbing compound will remove/damage it.
