    Default Anybody know the RAL code for Red?

    Now I've got my solo seat I need to paint it. Does anybody have the RAL paint code for Rosso Ducati Anniversery? I'm sure I've seen it somewhere here but I'm damned if I can find it. Also just as importantly does anybody know what the undercoat colour should be?

    How about this?

    Used the search facility and this one of the first to come up. Many more there if not the correct answer.
    Never argue with an idiot..onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.

    Paint supplier can work off the paint code rather than the RAL

    I asked for 487.111 and the mannie knew what I was talking about

    I daren't ask now but don't suppose anyone would know
    I have a small scratch on the bottom of my fork (Multi 1200S Ohlins) and have been trying to locate a paint code to touch it up.
    I contacted Ohlins direct and found out the part is anodised not painted so they don't have a reference.
    There suggestion was to use a device that can determine colour mix by pointing it at a surface...sounds great but as neither myself or anyone I know has such a device it's not very helpful.
    So...just on the off chance would anyone know a suitable piant code for the silver base of the fork that I could use (it's only a very small scratch!)

    I live in Norway and they like things Germanic, which is why I would like the RAL code. I'll talk to the paint man and see if he knows about PPG numbers. Undercoat colour anybody - i would assume white but you should never assume.

    Because if you "assume" you make an "ass" out of "u" and "me" !

    I understand some bodyshops have this capability now so it should be possible.

    However I am not sure even if you got the correct colour match that it would look much better than at present.
    The anodising process is only a few microns thick and having reanodised forks if there are any blemishes on the fork it still shows after anodising.
    Painting it will probably leave an area which will look completely different to the surrounds.
    Those better informed may be able to confirm or otherwise.
    All else fails stick an Ohlins sticker on each leg!

    Default Best powdercoat match RAL 3001

    I know this is a *very* old thread, but I am powder coating some engine bars for my 2015 Multistrada 1200 s DVT, and thought I should post the results of my research on this topic, especially since the OP wanted a RAL color code. I am going with RAL 3001 with powder from Prismatic Powders https://www.prismaticpowders.com. See attached images showing a sample tube next to the Multistrada frame. I attempted to take photos in various lighting conditions.
