Hi All, bobstrax very kindly helped me out with his paint code after my original post (thanks!), but I thought it would also be nice to get the "official line" from Honda themselves. Being of a persistent nature, (and irritated by their original Bullpoop response (see original post)) I rattled Honda's cage until I - eventually - got the following response (verbatim):

"I have spoken with my bike master technicians. The clutch cover is bronze and is called YR-325M Pyrite Brown Metallic. I hope this goes some way to assuring you that all matters brought to the attention of Honda (UK) are taken seriously and thoroughly" :)LOL)

So there you go.. it would appear Honda paint colours are a secret guarded only by master technicians (and many-headed hounds and black magic!). But apparently the colour name we've all been struggling to find is Pyrite Brown Metallic or YR-325M.

Hope this helps people out, and in particular, that Bojay's soul will hurt a little less now!
Thank you so much, Mate!

This is so awesome. You saved us all with that elusive paint code and some folks here who were weird about sharing it on this forum (go figure human nature…). Cheers!

The paint code is great to have, but just an FYI that replacing the actual cover is way less expensive than what you might expect. I just ordered one from Honda and it's less than $80. Just a heads up for those interested.

Yes, I have no idea how or why its so cheap in the US. The parts for this bike are a fraction of what parts are for other bikes.
