Centre Stand Paint

My 2019 GT is my third F800. Generally very happy with performance, handling and build quality BUT, on each bike the paint has rapidly been blasted off the centre stand cross brace which catches all road crud despite having fender extender fitted. Only a cosmetic issue but annoying.
I have tried repainting with Hammerite and also stone chip paint but neither last long. Anybody found a paint that survives in that location and available in UK?

I second Redned's recommendation about sheathing the crossbar. I paint the c/s annually (with Hammerite), then grease the crossbar & use Cable Sheath I think mine was maybe 50cm length (not the 10m here)
