Gel coat repair

I have a 2004 x star with a pea sized rock chip under the bow from trailering. I am looking for a recommended repair kit that would work to patch the gel. Do they have color matched ones for that year still however I am sure the 17years have changed it a bit. TIA

Spectrum has a small kit (although sometimes hard to find the small size) that is usually close to the OEM color. As you point out, you may run into the Spectrum OEM color VS the aged color (UV) of your gel now.

I have bought the Spectrum patch kit on 3 occasions for my 2006 and it has always been a perfect match.

I've used this before and its pretty easy. Black would be easy to match especially if its small and under the bow. You are probably the only person that would ever notice it.
