I was wondering if there was a paint code for a 2006 yamaha r1 Blue. i have a solo seat cover that is grey and would like to paint it to match the bike and the lower section of the bike that is blk i would like to paint blue to match the bike along with the hugger. anybody delt with this or is the recommended solution to have local jobber color match? thx in advance.
Unlike vehicles, motorcycle manufacturers are very tight lipped about "Paint codes". So more then likely you will not find anyone that can give you a "Paint Code". One company pretty much makes all the paint for all the manufactures. Click Here.
I am not sure of your recourses but if you have to pay a "Jobber" to get a perfect color match then you will probably have a lot of money wrapped up in the paint by the time they are done tinting and doing test panels. If you don't have good recourses, I would just buy the paint from them.
Good luck on whatever works for you.

I found this one on another message board a long time ago. It's Yamaha Blue. PPG - DBC4798, I used it and it looks perfect to me. I painted the whole bike so I cant tell you how well it blends to the original paint.
