Paint code?

After the last group ride I led, I need a small amount of touch up paint, and looked under the seat for the paint code: NH436 -- Asphalt! Obviously, the previous owner had it repainted after he crashed it, and while it looks like a Honda color, maybe one of the later model Gold Wing colors, I need a code number for the touch up paint. If any of you out there with a Yellow 919 could take a look at the frame under the seat for the color code I'd appreciate it.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Rob, is it bright yellow like Gin's 599? I can give you that code if it'll help.

http://www.colorrite.com/ seems to have a pretty good handle on OE paint.

The yellow 599's I've seen look like a lighter shade, maybe with a bit less red in the mix, but I'd appreciate the code number anyway. The thing is, if when I first saw what turned out to be my 919 amongst the used bikes at the dealership, if it had been Asphalt color I'd have walked right by it -- something about that color and the way it accentuated the profiles just screamed "BUY ME!!" So I did.

I'm afraid the color may have been mixed by the painter, so I'll have to have it custom matched. Ah well: it's worth it.

A good automotive paint supplier should be able to match it and provide a touch-up mix. Good luck

Rob, the code on the '04 599 is Y163P, Pearl Flash Yellow. I had the rear cowl repaired and painted, along with the side panels, and the first paint job by code didn't match perfectly. It was a bit more orange than the original paint, which is a fairly bright yellow. My paint shop then used a paint spectroanalyzer and mixed their own color, which came out perfect. Sounds like that might be your best route, most body shops have that option these days, or can get a loaner from their paint supplier.

The later model Goldwing yellows were "Pearl Hot Rod Yellow": color code Y130P.

Just paint it canary yellow & splash a little road grime on it.
It will blend in perfectly.
