Found- Paint Chart Reference Guide

PostAuthor: American XV535 1996 » Mon Feb 02, 2009 2:45 am

Found these 26 pages "Paint Chart Reference Guide" while searching for paint codes for my XV535. Not sure how helpful it will be for anyone but its located Here> Paint Chart Reference Guide

Hope it helps a fellow Viragoer out. :beer:

Cool too bad it doesn't go back to 82. I've always wondered if mine is an original colour .... It sure looks like original paint but I'd like a perfect match for the side covers, They are pretty close though.

I was searchin the web for Yamaha's Metallic Black for a 2000-XV535, for my 1996 535. I bought a sweet gas tank and rear fender and wanted the color codes to get mixed locally, as color rite is outta there friggin minds on prices. :jaw:

I know Yamaha keeps it a secret but jeeze is color rite using Plutonium in their paints or what?
Came across this on a Yamaha crotch rocket forum they were talkin about matching up a certain yamaha Blue for their bikes.

I looked through it and saw some Viragos listed so thought it might interest some to look it over.

As for any other years, only what listed at that link is all I found so far.

To get Minimal amounts of, Paint color,Base Color,Gloss Clear, Catalized primer, and enough Reducer was Over $187.00 PLUS color rites shipping charges and I had heard they are Not very gentle on those either.

All I need to paint is my front fender and side covers to the Metallic Black (BK-2) but at those prices I can get from bike bandit a 2000 front fender already painted with the gray pinstripe it has for $178.62 plus shipping. And just bolt it on.

Side covers I can match up locally with PPG or DuPont, I will search through my auto color chip books to find something Close. (was a body&fender man for about 12 years in my younger days)

Or get the Chrome side covers on ebay and just bolt those on. A little more Chrome never hurt no one. :grin:

I just went through pgs 1 thru 14 and didn't find one listing for any model that was teal & black. Did find one 96 that was blueish green gold. Also on Clear-Rite, for the 95 xv1100, they only show RED, ORANGE & BLACK. Somewhere here abouts, I found a listing for touch-up colors & the showed same as color-rite..I guess I'll have to take my side cover (which is solid color by injection molding.)to have it color matched. As all I need is for someone trim work on my large boxes, I think I'll just have a sign shop run them out in vinyl.
Concidering how many of these teal & black bikes are out there, it's just amazing that no one can seem to find the codes anywhere. Oh well, keep looking I guess. :search2: :search2: :search2:

I personally appreciate these references but the problem, beside older models, is that there are no codes for bikes from other countries. IE: Canada. My bike like a lot of them hereabouts are teal & black but nowhere on the net is this combination shown. As a matter of fact, the Teal is not mentioned anywhere including Color-rite. I need a left side cover but thankfully I have found a pair in great shape for a great price. Unfortunately the side covers are molded front the injection molds in the teal but that doesn't help much to do graphics. I guess I will have to go to auto paint suppliers to see if they can match the color.
Thanks for those pages. Cheers, Angela.

Sorry guys for what I just realized is a near duplicate. Just call it a "bump!"

I too am looking for paint codes
I found this https://touchupdirect.com/touch-up-pain ... _year=1998

BTW, Automobile VIN numbers DO NOT have any information regarding paint, interior, trim etc.
