      Reflex blue is the closest one coat color to yamaha blue that I have found so far. Before I started doing my own powedercoating I sent out some parts to be done yamaha blue. The parts came back extremely close to yamaha blue. The shop that powdercoated the parts used a 2 coat process using silver as a base coat I believe. I am currently trying to find the exact colors they used, If I do I will let you know. Here is a picture of what the color turned out like.

        I used some of the reflex blue. We shot a test part first and matched it to the bike it it was very very close.
        We just shot the color over no base and cleared it. Without the clear it was kinda close, but with the clear it was even more closer.

        Captain: Tight looking ride you got there!

              Columbia coatings reflex blue (Yamaha blue color) is not even close, its an ugly solid color, the correct color is only produced by a 2 stage powder over a reflective base coat and or clear top coat.

              I know H.B fuller has that color, also morton, (R&H now) has the color, but again you have to buy alot of it.

              CASWELL CAN YOU GET THIS COLOR FOR US, ALOT OF PEOPLE WOULD BUY IT.

                  That is NOT reflex blue. I had a shop do that color for me. They said it was a 2 coat process using silver as a base caot.

                      RAL was the powder that was used for those parts.

                              Found the color finally.

                              Tiger Drylac dormant blue

                              It requires a clear top coat which activates the dormant undercoat to bring out the color.
