1989 gl1500 color codes

Post by jtd »



Looking to source a replacement right side rear heat shield for my 95 gl1500 aspencade. Color code from the gas cap door is R-176C. I can find a shield for an 89 gl1500 but I cant tell if its the same color as mine - mine is a dark maroon color and the 89 shield looks to be more purple in color from the pic available. Does anyone know if the 89 & 95 wings used the same color codes? Also, BTW, don't add water to your battery while its in the bike. You will drip acid onto the heat shield...

Candy Spectra Red is your R176C paint code and was available 1992-2000. 1989 machine had Candy Wineberry.

The Candy Wineberry has a R114-CU code color which doesn't match your '95 Candy Spectra. From what I see, Honda didn't begin using the Candy Spectra Red (R176C) until the '92 models and used it through the '00 models. I'd stick with most red colors '92-'00.

Awesome replies - Thanks. Makes sense as the 89 shield color looked too purple, ala Wineberry. I'll look for a 92 or newer piece. Thanks again guys!
