Have you tried asking a Yamaha dealer?

Other than them, you could try one of the auto-paint suppliers in town and see if they can get it or mix it for you.

You can go to Johnson on College Dr in South Houston. They will colormatch anything you want.

I've had good results with color-rite. I've been able to fix rashed saddle bags and fairings without having to repaint the whole bike or worry about that part matching.

I make it very clear to the owner that they will pay more for the factory-matched paint, but so far they don't mind. It's worth it.

If you are more south, then there is a Johnson in Dickinson on HW3 between 646 and 517. The store isn't as set-up as Johnson on Collage, but still another choice. And Like they said, Johnson can give you a close color match.

just out of curiousity...how bad would a paint job turn out on a bike, using latex paint? i have been considering it because you can get just about any color, it's very inexpesive for a large amount, it's very easy to clean up (i will be using my HVLP), and i hear it sets up smooth when it cures...

i got this idea from an article from a model r/c airplane magazine

personally i didnt think it was that expensive. $16 for a touch up pen, $35 for an aerosol can. then again ive never really compared it to anything else.

THE BEST WAY IS TO TAKE IT TO A SHOP THAT WILL ACTUALLY MAKE SEVERAL DIFFERENT MATCHES TILL THEY GET THE RIGHT COLOR. ANY GOOD SHOP CAN DO THIS.

i am that picky and im considering the cheaper route on this thread i've priced new fairings and i would need uppers, front, rear cowl, and a tank just to have the show room look, and i would still have to put the stickers on (do the fairings come painted from ron or bandit??) plus new clip ons and a hugger all together its a grip but i want that "showroom" look , im just looking at my options thx for all the advise

fyi some one keyed and layed this bike down before i got it
