Paint

The Yamaha paint code is 006G (NYB). Apparently Yamaha painted, water sanded, repainted, water sanded, repainted and clear coated (hard to tell and info is sketchy) to get a final mirror like finish with zero orange peel. I had a local shop that specializes in motorcycle painting source this color and follow this scheme to get the results you see. It was automotive paint, but I'd have to ask to get the brand. Had both fenders, taillight bracket, tank and side cover done this way. Results were impressive.
