    Paint code for red on Gen 1 HP

    Hi, sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't find anything.  I'm looking for some touch up paint for the red on a HP scheme on a Gen 1.  It's for a couple of stone chips.  Does anyone know a source or paint code?  Is it the same red as an all red bike?

    thanks

    Kev

    The paint code is M36 for the red Gen 1 XR

    Racing Red codes seem to be M36, YM36, NA5, and/or YNA5. I just need to find someone who supplies it as touch-up paint.

    This website seems to be the most helpful in finding the codes, but not easy to use. https://color-online.glasurit.com. Pick 'BMW', and 'red' Search results:

    thanks.  Does anyone know if racing red is in fact the red on the multi coloured HP.  I could ask a dealer I suppose.

    HP scheme is a white/blue bike. the multi-colored bits are stickers, not paint. front panels are clear-coated so stickers are underneath, rear panels arent, just stickers on top. run your nail over you'll see.
    Not sure if you'll find the match for red, therefore, I think it is best to take it to the paint shop where they can scan and provide you with a touch-up?

    yup I suspected that might be the case.  I had some paint matched from a panel on another bike so that's definitely and option.

    I've used M36 and it's a perfect match, but if you're just after repairing stone chips, try RSbikepaint.com

    They sell touch up kits, BUT, if you buy their clear coat (and it does have to have clear coat on top of the basecoat), it is only an acrylic top coat, and will not give protection from raw fuel, only 2k clear coat will do that. But if it's only a small chip, that probably won't be an issue.
