I just picked up my left side fairing yesterday from the body shop. Had to get it repainted after a slight "off"! The guy told me Triumph wouldn't give him anything. No codes numbers or anything. So he said he matched it up the best he could. And I here to tell you, you couldn't see any difference with a microscope. My 2 cents... Find a guy that knows how to match paint and let him do it.

If you log onto the Triumph UK site and then click on "Technical" there is a list of paint codes.
Good luck

mine has chips in the front wheel too :???: im shocked since the riding i did was only the first 30 miles of around town...little dissapointed how its holding up...i can just imagine with some high speed highway miles what they will be like. I will say they look to be powder coated...i say hell with it and just ride it...im planning on riding it for a few years then trade up....so in the larger picture who cares right? :-D

ricster, how does one not get any chips riding around Waterbury!! Just got back from there before all h3ll broke loose this weekend, but I did notice your streets are covered with a lot sand and small pepples. Is this what the state/county uses for de-icing the roads?? How long do you guys have to wait for the county to clean that ***** up in the spring. I really thought that our use of coal cinders for winter mess was bad here in west-by-god, but you guys are right in there, so be safe and try to stay chip free.!!
