Paint colour code details

I need to have some scratches repaired on the lower left enging side cover (long story ). The part colour is listed as Magnesium on the fische. Does anyone have or know of the paint spec details, colour code etc ? I'd like to be able to provide the info to the painter if possible. Year 2005, Light Yellow Metallic, but the lower sections are all the same colour as far as I know.

Re: Paint colour code details

from an old post of Joe's

Paint Color List
K1200LT - Colors by Year

1999 - Canyon Red, Basalt Grey Metallic, Champagne Metallic
2000 - Canyon Red, Basalt Grey Metallic, Champagne Metallic, Pacific Blue Metallic
2001 - Mauve Pearl, Night Black, Toscana Green Metallic, Pacific Blue Metallic, Champagne Metallic
2002 - Night Black, Pacific Blue Metallic, Toscana Green Metallic, Mauve Pearl, Titan Silver Metallic
2003 - Titan Silver Metallic, Anthracite Metallic, Impala Brown Metallic, Night Black
2004 - Impala Brown Metallic, Night Black, Titan Silver Metallic
2005 - Ocean Blue Metallic, Dark Graphite Metallic, Light Yellow Metallic
2006 - Ocean Blue Metallic, Magnesium Black Graphite, Storm Gray Metallic
2007 - Night Black, Biarritz Blue Metallic, Storm Gray Metallic

(BMW only officially offers 3 colors per year. But many Beemers are shipped over here painted colors from previous years. Champagne Metallic and Night Black are probably the two greatest examples of these 'anomalies'.)


K1200LT - Paint Codes
Anthracite Metallic (397)
Biarritz Blue Metallic (847)
Basalt Gray Metallic (410)
Canyon Red Metallic (343)
Champagne Metallic (417)
Dark Graphite Metallic (919)
Impala Brown Metallic (418)
Light Yellow Metallic (376)
Magnesium Black Graphite (N01)
Mauve Pearl (489)
Night Black (668)
Ocean Blue Metallic (947)
Pacific Blue Metallic (441)
Storm Gray Metallic (N02)
Titan Silver Metallic (354)
Toscana Green Metallic (492)


Trim colors / codes (i.e. dash etc.)
Magnesium Metallic (957)


As expected, I found a few conflicts regarding paint code numbers. I did the best that I could. Perhaps BMW used different paint codes for the same color from year to year.

Hope this helps...

Re: Paint colour code details

I remember from when I looked this up a while ago... Colorite was also a good source for paint matching .

Re: Paint colour code details

Thanks Chris. I presume the code is an international thing ?? It appears that a clear top coat is also used, finish is satin.

My bike is the same color scheme and I believe your paint codes are 376 for the light yellow metallic and 058 for the magnesium metallic. I have found OEM touchup paints on eBay as available from a BMW car dealership. BMW motorcycle dealers do not stock touchup paint it appears but maybe the car dealers do.

Re: Paint colour code details

Holt BMW knows all the color codes. They are also a Glasurit dealer (BMW OEM Paint) and do restorative as well as custom paint work.

Very helpful and knowledgable. I have bought OEM paint from them twice.

Re: Paint colour code details

The BMW paint code for the light yellow is 949 (according to my local dealer) and Colorrite has it as 376. Can any one with first-hand experience with color attest to the fact that it will, in fact, match the original color?

Re: Paint colour code details

Thankyou all for your assistance in this. Holt BMW, Ohio are to be commended for their prompt response to my query regarding the paint code. They are right on the money, excellent. For information - BMW colour scheme code 949 is for light yellow metallic over Magnesium Metallic Matt for lower sections and trims. Individually - light yellow metallic is BMW code 376 and magnesium metallic matt is BMW code 957. The Glasurit website also has an excellent colour code search function which confirms this info as well.

The code on the sticker under the seat on the LT is not the Paint Color Code, but a "Trim Code", which covers all trim items. The dealer can look up the trim code and get the paint code.

The blues are all different shades. Biaritz Blue (847) has a brighter hue than Ocean Blue (947) and will not match.
