    Default Red PAint for 82 GS750 needed

    I need red paint for my 82 GS750E, but have run into a brick wall. The local paint can't color match any closer that 86% match, and recommended the dealer. The dealer doesn't have code for that far back and recommended Color Rite. So Color Rite said that only go back as far as the 90's.
    Any ideas?

    suzukipartsmonster shows a candy fancy meroon for an "82" GS750E, part # 99000-10209-10S. I'm thinking the 10S is the color code.

    Good luck. If you find a paint formula to match the color code please post up the info here. Codes are one things, but formula's are where it's at.
