Paint codes from VIN?

Hey how's it going? Just found the forum and it looks sweet. Is there a website I can look up the VIN off my bike to find paint codes? any help would be appreciated.

No there is no site like that but if you know what color your bike is, and need matching paint, go to www.colorrite.com and you can buy the OEM matching colors.

OEM vin does not include any paint info in it.

Re: Paint codes from VIN?

Find a parts listing from a European source and go through the painted parts looking for the paint codes. Then you may have to find a European source for the paint as ColorRite will only have it if it's used on US bikes. For example on the K6, the European bikes used YHL/Candy Sonoma Red on the CRS model instead of YHH/Marble Erakis Red Bright Red on the BZG model.
