Take off the seats. It should be on a sticker close to the back of the tank.

Hopefully the under-seat code is what you need.

I remember a thread where someone said that the code isn't the paint code, but some type of "appearance" or "color family" or something like that.

A long time ago, I saved a link to this thread, just in case I needed it. http://www.k-bikes.com/forums/showthread.php?p=86473

A few months ago, my bike needed some paint (top case and more). The guy who did the painting was a perfectionist. He told me that the BMW paint wasn't a perfect match, so he did his own matching. It took three tries to get the perfect match, but he got it right. I do not know what formula he used, and there is no easy way to ask.

If you have a friend with the Dupont matching system they can scan the color and it gives them the formula for the paint. Pretty slick stuff.

Paint

I had my trunk painted last year . I took it to a napa dealer and they had a computer thing that scanned the paint and then mixed it cost me $50.00 for a half pint and it matched perfectly. When I went to pick up the paint the guy at the napa dealer said it was a standard either Volvo or subreau color.
