Re: R1200RT colour codes?
I found the paint code in the manual on mine, I guess the dealer wrote it in. I had a top bag painted to match and my body shop buddy showed me the formula for the color , in grams and wow, it was a LOT of different colors including two or three "pearle" pigments that made up our beige color. Turned out well and after two shunts this year I went ahead last week and repainted both my bags to get the scratches out of them as well and it matched perfectly to the bike.
You better have a really good paint guy though as the formula is complicated . I've seen paint from accessory makers that was supposed to match that wasn't even close.
Good luck with it.
No matter where you go , there you are.
