Newbie, sorry but can’t find answer!

Post by 99grandamse » Sun May 06, 2018 4:25 pm



Hi there!

Strange question after reading that lots of people prefer the change their instrument panel color but I actually like the factory grey color on my titanium 2004. That said, I have a couple of small wear/scratch marks that would look better with some grey touch up over them instead of the black base plastic color, so my question is does anyone know the official paint color for this?

Thanks in advance!

Kelly

p.s.: I’m from Nova Scotia Canada so I’m happy to say it is finally nice enough weather to get the bike out today. :lol:

You will have to get it mixed, so you need the colour code, it should be under the fuel filler flap, could be 181P
If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.

The Silver on your dash panel is either the Matt Plutonium Silver NH389M https://www.colorrite.com/product/honda ... c-1423.cfm
Or the Pearl Twilight Silver NH390M https://www.colorrite.com/product/honda ... r-1450.cfm

Hope this helps

For future reference, the best way to find paint colors for your bike is to go to one of the Honda OEM parts sources, like Babbits On Line, search for your part, most of the parts that are painted will list the paint codes in the part description.

Hi there ... wow, you are the man!! ... I called my local dealer yesterday to see if I happened to get a different parts guy from the last time I checked as the first guy was of no help ... anyway, I did get someone new and he told me the same thing you just did in terms of what I need being the 'Matt Silver, #NH389M' ... now, all I have to do is maybe find a dealer in Canada ... no big deal I guess as I travel to the States fairly often too so I might just ship it to a buddy of mine in Maine and pick it up from him ... anyway, appreciate everyone's help!!!!!! :D

Just bought a 2005 (my first goldwing), the paint code on this bike is on a sticker on the inside of the fuel door.

Don't know if this applies to other model years but worth a check for anyone trying to find their paint code.
