Unfortunately the color code you see for the bikes color is not always the code you need for the seat.
That information used to be available on the parts microfiche but has been deleted on the internet sites. I had to call with the color code so they could match up the correct color for a replacement seat. I deal with Honda Direct most of the time and they are customer oriented and courtesy.

Odds are that IF you find the bikes color the seat will be referred to as 'TYPE 1' or 'TYPE 2'.

Go to Bikebandit.com. Put in the year of the gold wing in the OEM parts section.
It will tell you the colors that were available for that year.

Which color code did you find under the fuel door? And which year is the bike?

When you use the parts finder fiche, look for the one labeled color chart. It will list the paint color codes and then give the corresponding part number suffix to use for the generic colored parts. Look here for an example: http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche.com ... &A=84&B=86

Foe some reason, not all the online parts suppliers post these color charts.
DARKSIDE #1500
88 GL1500, Phantom Gray Metallic, double darkside
97 Valkyrie, red/white
Previously, GL1200 (2), many other Hondas and one Kawasaki
Ham Extra Class, AC1R

andrew59it, it is the color code for the color of your bike.Mine is a 1993 but it should be on all of the 1988-2000 GL1500 wings. Hope this answers your question. Mike

Hello Mike
do you have a magenta goldwing? Please read the color code under the fuel door.

No I do not mine is black. I have a buddy who's I think is magenta I can see what his says but I am not sure when I will see him. I think if you go to www.bikebandit.com put your info on the bike and look for a plastic part like a side cover sometimes they have a list of all the colors of that year and the color code. Mike
