    Hey all. I've been searching high and low for Dark Amethyst body work, haven't had any luck yet. I don't even need the full set, just one good piece that has enough "clean" paint that I can get it matched down at the paint shop. That's the color I want my bike but if it ain't the toughest color to find.... haha.


    Thanks!

    That's one of the colors they used in 1985, if memory serves me.. You do know that the red ones were faster, don't you?

    You could always get some from Color-Rite, a small amount, have that painted, and have your shop match it.

    I just looked on their website, it was a 1985 color but the only one they show is a red. I believe the color was 'dark amethyst' as you posted.

    The color code from Yamaha for Dark Amethyst is "00KW," and the abbreviation is, (appropriately) "DA."

    I parted out an 85 a while back, its a dark blue/purple color. If thats the beast you need then im fairly certain I still have a rear fender. Ill be home from work early next week and happy to check. Let me know via PM if I can help. Also there is a body paint shop here.that scans colors and perfectly matched a Lexus color for me, If the scan data would help or you need a paint chip, or a whole part let me know. The paint condition is fair/poor so I would have no objection to sending a chip along.

    Yeah, colorrite is no help. I've had a buddy that works at a paint shop look up that code in their computer and it came back with no result.

    If it does, and I haven't found any by then, I'd definitely be interested in getting it scanned? I don't actually need the body, I just need to get it scanned somewhere so I can buy the mix.

    Casey, I'll shoot you a PM.

    I've got a local oreilly's that has a paint department with a scanner I think. Just have to remind me? I am guess at least a month before it's here (or more).

    Not rubbing it in but I got a complete set after a long search. No use to post pics, that does you no good.
