Where do I find my paint code?

Please help I have a 2005 sv650s, and I need to repaint the front fairing. Thing is, I feel really stupid not being able to find the paint code on my motorcycle, because I work in a paint shop! I looked up suzuki motorcycle paint codes on the computer at work, and there are quite a few blues (mine is blue). I've mixed up a few of the colors, but alas, none have been right. I can't keep wasting the paint materials at work ($$$). Can someone please help me and tell me where on my bike I can find this elusive color code? Thank you so much!

Thank you so much! I would have never thought that it was under the tank. Its a lot easier finding paint codes on cars!

Re: Where do I find my paint code?

Wow, dats some expensive stuff (color-rite). How much paint would I need to paint a belly pan? I have no idea how much paint I would need. It's not a chin spoiler, it's a full belly pan. It's almost exactly like the one nudist had on his white bike. I'd also like to have a little left over for touch up work.

Also, would it not just be cheaper, or close to the same price, to take it to a shop. I can't imagine one belly pan would be that much to paint. I could then just buy a touch up jar or something.

Thanks.

Re: Where do I find my paint code?

Anyone know what the '07 blue paint code is? I looked under the tank but it is only partially stamped. It might be VK5, but if it is then the 5 was stamped upside down.

Ya, I cant find the paint on Colorites website. Only US SV650 colours on there, they don't show the silver (which is sold in Canada). ARGH
