Hey Guys, I have a 2012 R6 that's white, black and red. The bike comes stock with Black rims, and I'm debating powder coating them to a candy red. This red would have to be as close as possible to the stock under tail, which is a candy red. I think the color is the same as the old 07 Candy red, but I haven't confirmed this.





My issue is trying to pick a color for powder coat, and praying its a close match...
I've been looking at colors on: http://powder365.com
This one looks pretty good, but again it comes down to being lucky at the end: http://powder365.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_9&products_id=111

Anyone else powder coated their rims to the same shade as the Yamaha Candy red?

Yup, it was called candy red. It required two different coats of powder. One chrome later, then the transparent red on top giving it the mirror candy finish.
