paint codes

Does anyone have the paint codes for the 06 raven? Or know where I can find them?

Re: paint codes

i can get u the yamaha codes but they mean absolutely nothing when trying to match paint. they don't correspond to anything. just a heads up bc people will probably try and give u yamaha's 4 digit number that don't mean shit.

Re: paint codes

Thanks. I guess my best bet is to go to a body shop and try to match it to cover up a few scratches.

Re: paint codes

wasnt there a webstite where you could purchase the paint already mixed to the proper code? i remember seeing the thread a while back... I'm wondering because I need the code as well, as I am trying to match the matte black fairings to the same gloss black. If anyone finds it for the 06 raven, let me know.

it's called colorrite. but they are way way way over priced. they sell quarts for what you could buy a gallon for of PPG or DuPont. or put it this way, I bought all the paint, reducer, clear, hardener, and all the prep materials to paint my bike for $98. they want $179 for a quart of paint. then you have to buy reducer for the paint $20
then the clear $60.= $259 you can clearly see how overly expensive this stuff is.
http://colorrite.com/
but like snowbizx said, the paint code is the code for their paint. only yamaha knows the paint code they used.

unfortunatelly motorcycles are not like cars and come with a sticker with the code for the paint shop to use.
so colorrite has taken advantage of this.

but someone told me that now Dupont has motorcyles in it's paint matching system now. so you give them the year and make etc and they have a code they use that matches. just like colorrite does.
but I've never confirmed this so I don't know.

Re: paint codes

look for a shop or store that sells matrix paints. it has all the paint codes in it for all kinds of motorcycles. and we use dupont, and it doesn't have any motorcycle codes. i had to look through the paint chips to find one close and then mod it to match. but if you have a paint store nearby, then they might have a scanner that can make a paint that will be very close, but not exact.
