    Looking to buy a touch up paint pen to hit a few small spots on the air box cover.
    I have a 1985 Vmax that is dark red - I think it is called Dark Amethyst?
    What would be the paint code for this color and who sells a touch up pen or can?
    Thanks for any help!

    I just found the ColorRight.com web site. They identify the color as Deep Scarlet code #5695. They sell the touch up pens and small bottles. They also require a base coat part # 1695. Should work well for the small chips.

    Hmm. Interesting. Was this color also carried over to 86? I have not seen a chart of the colors for the various years, but I suspect it is the same. I only ask because my 86 is the same color I believe. And it has a couple of battle scars that could use a little touch up. Paint is nice other than those scars...

    Nevermind. Pretty sure it's a different color. Mine is much darker. Burgundy / maroon

    Sorry, the ColorRite site skips over 1986 for Yamaha.
