I have an '09 Custom Special Edition with the orange cylinder heads. I've ordered a Lindby Multibar and rather than getting it powdercoated black, the wife and I were thinking of matching it to the orange cylinder heads.

I contacted Kawasaki Canada Customer Service to find out what powdercoat code / colour mix was correct. First, they pointed me to Colorrite.com, their recommended site for OEM colour paints and said the code was 17L Candy Burnt Orange which is a mix of a base coat and a colour coat. Color Rite does wet paints for retail not powdercoating.

I viewed the both the paint site and the Kawasaki website and the heads look different. I suspect Kawasaki thought I had the Orange version of the bike. I asked for confirmation and they requested I provide my VIN. Using the VIN, the customer service rep looked up the part number but it has no info on colour.

Anyone have any info what colour / powdercoat to use to produce the proper orange?
