Matching frame paint

It would be good to find a car areosol that matched the purple OE frame paint fairly closely. Anyone managed to find one please?

I think I may have found a car aerosol to match the blue metallic frames but will let you know when I have tried it wink

I have heard from an owner who says: "I have found a paint that matches the TTR Frame really well. It is the Holt's Austin Rover Tahiti Blue Pearl code CBM160 it is a two stage paint but I just used the base coat not the lacquer. Don't know how well it will wear but the colour is very close."

Hope that helps someone. I haven't tried the paint I found yet.

Paint code for 2002 ttr250.
Permalink  
 


Hi from Australia.

 

 

I have owned my ttr250 for about two years now and recently did a ten thousand kilometer trip on it just six months ago. And my baby loved it! It wanted more. All my mates doubted it would make it but oh man it did.

As u can imagine it has a few chips and stuff now and i am really wanting to fix some paint up on the frame but i am having alot of trouble finding a paint code for the frame over here in AUS. Is there anyone who can help me with this problem?

 

Thanks alot

Narlydk!

Welcome, narlydk.

The enigma of TTR paint code/sorce continues. confuse

It's a universal gripe that no suitable match has been sourced that's reliable and universal. disbeliefno

Your best bet would be to get a sample mixed at the likes of Halfords or auto shop.

I don't think Mr Yamaha has supplied any touch up cans yet. More's the pity.  cry

If you do, perchance, find a suitable answer then please post on here and let us all know.

I don't think that postage is to blame, Barra.

The prices in the catalogue say "£8.00 +VAT & shipping" so it seems like the base cost is listed.

It isn't cheap but it should be the correct colour blue if nothing else. smile

I hasten to add that I haven't bought or tried any of their products but since Mr TTR was having little success in sourcing a match I thought it may have been interesting. blankstare

I had an 400ml aerosol made up at my local motor factors paint shop whilst I waited and they used the website listed above to get what appears to be a great match when held against my frame. They just used the code on their mixing machine and hey presto. Cost £10.99

Anytime Brian,i actually emailed them and they updated their website so it makes it easy to choose colour for TTR250's. When i first had a look it only stated WR's and CRf's but by going off the paint code it was the same anyway. I sent e'm an email and yay

 

they updated it biggrin

Was the paint a good match Colin?

Is there any way to cross reference the code to this chart? http://www.carplan.co.uk/clients/www.carplan.co.uk/assets/pdf/color_match.pdf

I tried the CarPlan BLUE-54 (MET) YNC005 and its not a very close match cry

The match was very good and I was more than pleased.

Not a clue about cross ref to the chart you mention.

The website they used  and the one I have quoted was what they were obviously happy to use for the paint code when mixing in the shop.

I would try someone local who is happy with that web site OR give the motor factors that I used a ring quoting the info I have given and get them to send some out to you,

http://www.transpares.co.uk/contact.php

Hope this helps

Thanks for the feedback Colin - much appreciated!

Right - just gotta find a local motor factor that makes up aerosols tomorrow.

I assume this is the info they need to make up the paint:

Yamaha 0583 Deep Purplish Blue Solid E (DPBSE)

  • SKU # : 5829
  • Vendor : ColorRite
  • Manufacturer : Yamaha
  • Manufacturer Code : 0583

I looked through Colorright website but can't find the equivalent data for the older purple framed TTRs. Is it there?

The paints you link to are both for the plastic tank TTRs.

The first metallic paint (0564) is for the frame and the non-metallic (0583) is, I guess, to match the plastics. Useful to have if you are going to have a go at respraying some panels!

The parts manual for the blue TTR shows the silver paint code as 0035.

I have just had an aerosol of metallic blue frame paint made up by Halfords at £13.99 for a 300ml can. They used the codes posted here. Just had a go with it and it is a fair bit darker than the original.

I thought it was close enough for me to carry on using it in my current resto project but having removed the masking tape etc I can see it is several shades too dark so am now dependent on the 400ml aerosols I have ordered from RS Paints being a better match cry Let's hope they arrive son as it's now holding me up no

According to the parts manual, the frame paint for the metal tank TTRs has colour code 0206, its called"Purplish White Solid 1" which is abbreviated to PWS1.

The removable rear LHS sub frame strut was the only bit of the bike suffering from rust. After removing it I lightly grit blasted and then sprayed it, this picture may show the match compared to the rest of the bike.

Here are a couple of pics to show how much too dark the Halfords paint mix was.

Paint difference 002.jpg

Paint difference 001.jpg

I am pleased to say that the areosols I ordered from RS Paints arrived today. The paint match is very good indeed although the aerosols lay the paint very heavily and it is very easy to create runs. I will soon learn though wink

I think I will stick with RS Paints in the future as they are a known quantity.

Just one thing- The ColorRite website is only good for people in the US, anyone in Australia CANNOT buy it. We only have the option of going to a good paint shop that sells DuPont. I have the codes for the blue model if anyone needs it.

Hi guys I've been looking for paint codes for blue 2006 ttr250 all the codes I've found on here seem to be for each paint suppliers

Does anyone know the correct paint code? Or whats best way forward to get a match got a local paint supplier. Rs paint too expensive need help please.

The paint codes below are Yamaha's codes. You need both the metallic and the solid, the metallic goes on first, then the solid, then the clear coat.

 

TT-R250                5GFD / 5GFE        Team Yamaha Blue/White                 Deep Purplish Blue Metallic C                   0564 (DPBMC)            

TT-R250R/C                                                                                            Deep Purplish Blue Solid E                       0583 (DPBSE)

You should be able to give those codes to the paint store, and they should be able to make it up. Bear in mind that it won't be cheap though.

 There was confusion about this on the forum for some time. Until awhile ago, it was thought that the ''solid'' was for the plastics. It is NOT!

  If you have too much trouble, let me know and I will ring the paint shop that I got my paint from for the paint formula.

Good luck!

Jarrah

Hey Moose,

Nice colour matching, very nice! Thanks for sharing!

I noticed that you either have a 3 amp fuse or 30 amp. Just wondering why you do not have the standard 15 amp fuse as fitted from factory?

It is a 3 with a lump of 15 amp wire in it. Quality job by myself to fire it up.

I still have not done anything to this bike.

I got it with an exploded clutch and no battery. I repaired the clutch over a year ago and there was not fuse there at all. All I had a was a 3 amp fuse so wrapped some 15 amp wire around the legs and shoved it in so we could start it with the starter motor. It would not start with kick as it had not been started for a while. Needed the battery and about half a can of startyabastard..

 

Oh and that paint. The sample shaft i painted was 2 coats no primer and no clear.

On my OE, I use Halfords Ford metallic purple or something on the wheels, it's a really good match for the rims. Not so for the frame.



I did my heat shield, with 3 coats then 3 lacquer, no primer, just a quick scuff-up with some emery cloth. I was sick of the rusty, grey paint of the original, it's still OK, but the lacquer isn't very resistant to high temps, it has started to bubble around the bolts, I assume it gets hottest there. You can just see on the left, where I tried to touch up a bare patch on the frame, it doesn't look very good, and started rubbing off again in no time.

Cheers Bri

I have taken all the stupid stickers of the plastics and I am going to try polishing the plastics to make them look better. Going to re paint the exhaust as well!!

And might get a new light.

No extra time Bri, kids are time bandits!

Just starting to realise what a good bike the OE is and seeing as it is mechanically sound.... thanks to me and totallyttrs.com!!!!! Thought I would work on the aesthetics!

The bikes not mine!

So anyways why don't you sell the frame paint? I would buy somewink

Thought I would add my twopence worth - I bought some frame paint from www.bikecolours.com about a year ago. They do touch up kits, aerosols etc. and ship worldwide.

The paint I bought was 'Yamaha DPBMC' and it is a pretty good match for the later blue-framed bikes.

Hope that helps someone!

I use a basic Halfords metallic blue spray. It's not an exact match but it's pretty close. Certainly when covered in mud it looks like perfect!

Frame paint ordered in Germany
Permalink  
 


For whom it may concern :


I did order spray cans at following online shop in Germany.

Both colours needed were ordered :

1) Deep-Purplish-Blue-Met-C

http://www.spraydosen-shop.de/Yamaha-Moto-Paint-564/DPBMC-1K-Spray-Set-Deep-Purplish-Blue-Met-C-150ml-2-Aerosol-Set

2) Deep-Purplish-Blue-Solid-E

http://www.spraydosen-shop.de/Yamaha-Moto-Paint-583/DPBSE-1K-Spray-Set-Deep-Purplish-Blue-Solid-E-150ml-2-Aerosol-Set

As each set comes with a clearcoat cannister no additional clearcoat spray is needed.

I must admit that after applying both sprays + clearcoat the result was even better than expected.
I hardly can see any difference!!!
