Thread: Paint code location

    Paint code location

    I have a 2007 R1200RT in the Biarritz blue met. color way. Is there a label on the frame that indicates paint code or does anyone know what that paint code might be. I dumped my bike in some gravel and need to repaint my bag lid. Thanks.

    There should be a sticker under the seat with a code for the paint scheme - the combination of colors used on the bike. Take a look at

    https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=51_6415

    The Biarritz scheme is M847, the code for the blue paint is 363, the silver paint code is 955, and the dark slate matte code is M976.

    I have the same model/color and took it to a good paint/body shop here in town and they perfectly matched it with no problem. The cost was about $100 for each lid about 5 years ago. I got the top case matched and the two side cases done and both mirror panels done for $450. All looked brand new and didnít have to give them the codes.

    Thanks for the info guys, I know of an auto body guy I respect and gave him the paint code, which he said was helpful. He mentioned the method of having a paint store take a picture and match the paint from that. This should be no problem. Having a scratched up bag is just embarrassing to explain.

    If you donít want to repeat the procedure I suggest you add crash bars. I speak from experience.

    Thanks mike, sound advice, monetarily difficult at this time. Paint first then bars.
