Cool Just one of my many problems...most aren't bike related!

Attached are two pictures, one with flash, one without. As you can clearly see, the fuel tank is darker than the airbox. This airbox is from a late first gen F4. The fuel tank is from a 1000s as is the tail section. The nose and airbox are much brighter red.

I am trying to make the whole bike one red without having to repaint half of it. It seems to me the darker airbox and nose should be available.

All else fails, perhaps I should be looking for a fuel tank and tail.....

So, I have purchased mirrors, and nose cones and airboxes(n?) and all have been bright red no matter what year produced. The F4 1000S was produced in 2005 and 2006 (correct me if I am wrong here...) and was darker as evidenced by the tank and tail.

The bike I am working on is a bit of a Frankenstein as it is a combination of a 750 and a 1000S (the motor of the 1000s is aboard.)

Some may recall that I drove to South Dakota last fall to get this bike for a friend while I was recovering from a quad-fractured foot post Deals Gap.

Any help here would be very greatly appreciated.

Paint fade has been ruled out. There are different paint codes as Art has posted. That newer, darker paint code went into effect as of 3005/6 as far as I can tell.

I just can't find any parts in that color...other than the one's that came on this bike!

Picky Picky....It's red...just ride it !!!

But seriously, I've also noted 2 different reds. Good luck with the quest...or get out the paint gear (did you replace your stolen/misplaced equipment?).

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

@esq'z me: Hi Ed! My paint equipment is still on the lamb! Cindy got me a very nice HVLP replacement gun for Christmas last year though, so I am slowly starting to replace what disappeared. I have thought about just repainting it, but I am intrigued by what bikes have the darker red...it has become a mission of sorts.

Chuck believe it or not, I have an Oro CF Tank and an Oro CF Air Box and the Air Box is a tad brighter.
Do I care?
No, because I will most likely find no other Oro Air Box.
Nor would I be able to pay for another one anyway.
Now, and this is might of interest for You, my OEM 2001 F4S Air Box is way brighter then the Oro stuff.

Chuck...

So, Nose and airbox are lighter in hue than the tank and tail..?

Tank and tail match ?

Where are you with the red on the fairing sides ?
