Paint help

I'm trying to find the paint no. or the name for the white paint. Yamaha has about 30 different whites. I got the blue off but it took right down to the metal on the tank. It's an '89 from New Zealand. Thanks

You'll have to know at least the model & year (of the paint you want to match) to get the right white. Color Rite has exact match paints (I have white/chappy red/clear coat for my '89 XT600), try it out here.
The White/blue XTs use a completely different white, it has some purple in it.

http://www.colorrite.com/matrix-step1.cfm?type=2

If it doesn't list the model, it just means it's the same color as a previous/later year model's color. Yamaha 0036 is the typical white-white Yamaha used on many of the XTs & Tenere models, like this:
0036 White white, and 00E1 "Chappy" red frame


Dunno if this works for Oz or NZ, but it's a start.

Bloody Aussies!
I know I'm late to the party, but shit yeah, you are 100% correct.

Gilb, your bike looks awesome, too. If they brought that bike stateside, I'd dump my XR650L in a heartbeat. Shit...I hope she didn't hear that...

Fairings and side covers seem to be difficult to find for the older models. If you do find something please post you results, it might help if you tell people what country your in too.

I finally got around to finishing the pannier racks since my last post in this thread. I added a Hepco Becker top case mount and the crashbars as well.

Ready for an Easter getaway.
