Does anyone know the paint codes for Yamaha Blue (on the frame)
and Silver (on the swingarm)?

PJ1 no longer makes frame paint.

I know Colorright has them, but they want over $100 for all the components (primer, clearcoat, paint, etc) in a spray can and then they screw you on shipping and a "fuel surcharge". I just don't want to get screwed that bad. If I can find the color codes, I can get professional auto-body paint for the same $100 and get enough to do the bike 5 times over. :crazy:

TIA

Have you thought about a winter tear down and powder coat?

I would if I was going to keep this bike. It's actually my sons YZ85 (but the colors are the same as the WR) and I am selling it to get him a 250f.

The machine is in great mechanical shape, but it has the typical frame rubbing from the boots and needs new graphics in order to get top dollar.

I don't mind putting some money into it to make it look great, but I was really use to the PJ1 paints at $8.00 per can. Colorrite is just obscene with their prices. I figured if I can get the color codes and buy it from the local paint shop, I would have extra for my other machines for the same price.

I would love the PPG code to mix it like regular automotive paint......

I called a few places and they actually have Yamaha Blue by DuPont, but its a 3 part paint and is $75 per part (pint).

I found the PPG code and a NAPA (I didn't know they made paint) code, but I left them at work. I'll post them on Monday.

A good auto paint store could also color match the paint if you can provide them with a good sample of the painted surface. Not sure what that would be short of taking the whole frame down.
