Hi,

I have a red 1999 XL600V Transalp with a damaged headlamp cowl.
I have found a replacement cowl online which is red but I'm not sure the colour will match.

Does anyone know if there were different shades of red used on this model/year?
I've attached a picture of my bike.

It's quite an expensive replacement part so I don't want to order it and find the colour will not match.
If one of the experts on this forum can confirm there was only one colour red on the cowl, then I can order it.

Thanks.
Peter

There is a colour code for your bike on a sticker on a frame rail under the seat.
Failing that, go to rsbike paint and it will tell you the various colour options for any particular model for each year.

Do first check that yours is a 99 model year rather than 99 registered bike

Thanks everyone. The link was useful. Based on that, it looks like the red on the panel I've found should be the right one so I've bitten the bullet and ordered it.
Let's see (hope!) that it matches otherwise I'll be selling it on.
Regards
