    Thank You ckoira for your help in this matter.
    I did some more reseach my self and found that since my Bike is an import to Australia and no repairs should be done on this vehicle,kawasaki supply pre painted panels for this vehicle and will not releace the codes. Good way to keep a customer hey.

There is a plate similar to the compliance and VIN code plates on or about the steering head which provides the colour codes. If you cannot find it, take a note of your VIN (17 digits) and seek "VIN advice" or FAQ colour "your model" thru an engine search.
However, an experienced paint shop can match any colour/media etc. they just charge a little more however. Cheers.

    The VIN plate does not carry the paint codes generally, your after another plate (or sticker) seperately. Maybe the colour code plate is well hidden somewhere and is only visible when bike is stripped down....however, the 7th digit of your VIN indicates the actual model of that years series. (my DR650RS has two different fairing styles; Dakar or Touring and a third variant overseas) The Kwaka dealers have this information but, seems to be hard work for them mostly! My little bit of research (2 minutes worth) uncovered this MIDNIGHT METALLIC SAPPHIRE BLUE ZX1400R Cheers again.

I have been trying for over a year to get the right paint for my ZZR1100 D1.

I must have spent hour after hour trolling the internet trying to find the right codes for the Violet paint to repaint the front fender on my bike without sucess.

Then one night after a very heavy drinking session, I sat at my pc and somehow found this site (in the morning I could not remember how, or even what the site was called)

Through the mists of a mother of all hangovers, I retraced my virtual steps and came upon who not only listed all the models and years of bikes but all the colour schemes as well, and I could order as little or as much as I needed.

Paid by card, items arrived three days later.

Moral of this story is..... If you cant find what you are looking for online, get well and truely pissed and try again.

Hope this is some use to you

Kawasaki paint code for blue z750s 2007

Actually Kawasaki does have color codes. The body panel part numbers for a certain color bike will have a common three digit dash number at the end of the part #..... That's the paint code !! My 2002 blue bike was something like -237. I just went through this trying to get the race bodywork matched to the stock color. I think they got the paint from Dupont ?? They painted everything but the front fender and I think it matches pretty good..

To my astonishment, my Yamaha dealer says he cannot supply touch up paint due to EC regulations on transport. I'm told by a paint expert he can supply paint if I have the paint code. The bike is an FZ6...

Go to any paint store that sells auto paint and have it matched up. I had them match up my faded Cougar and it was a perfect match, bought one qt no problem. I don't know the paint codes, but they have them. Hope this helps.

Touch up paint for a 84 kawasaki kz550 ltd...kinda purplesih/mauve/redish need name and paint code/ supplier of antiqe paints for motorcycles

If you can find a paint code it can be referenced through color You will probably get better results taking it to the your local paint store and having them use there sun gun to get the exact color of the bike. It basicaly takes an extremely close shot of the paint and then makes a mixture. This helps because the new paint will be closer to the faded color you have now.
