Or you can go to Johnsons supply on College rd in South Houston to make a match. You have to bring in a panel to match it to. I have friends that are professional painters Jared.

the only person that ACTUALLY converts the bike's paint code to mix the paint will be www.color-rite.com. but any paint manufacturer with a "profit scanner" (profit is the company that makes the paint scanner analyzer thingamabob, not how much profit they can scan you for haha) will get you a close enough match.

let's just put it like this....to paint a complete bike with their paint....will cost you double what it costs in other MAJOR paint manufacturers.

even then.....it is IMPOSSIBLE to get a 100% match. that i can bet my life on it. even if the dealership sold the paint.....you will still not get a 100% match.

the only REAL way to do it is to blend the paint over to other panels. same goes for cars/trucks.

btw, i forgot....back on topic since you didn't really ask for paint.....

paint code is usually a white sticker measuring about 2"x2" on your subframe/undertray. sometimes located along with the VIN sticker on the main frame as well.

but that code isn't gonna do you any good, unless you are replacing parts or buying paint from color-rite.com

+1

The photoscanners get close, but not exact. Don't believe when they say "I can match it"- it never happens. Most all factory colors are "tri-coat" and as Tony said, you have to paint the whole panel to get it right anyway.

Color-rite is it, and you'll pay (even from the stores that say they'll match, it will still cost a lot + reducers + clear + all other materials).
