Hey Lavern...
yamaha-enduros.com/index.php/workshop/wiki/127-1977-ty250d

The tech library has a model listing entry for your 77 TY250.

There is also a section in the forum for the TY models.

Badger52,
Many thanks for the links. The first link did provide a paint color, Windy Blue, but no actual paint code.   On the second link I found a start of a thread, "TY 250A paint code",  but no one has answered and the 1977 TY250  is a is a D series. Thank you for the links. Perhaps if I mention "Windy Blue" when the time comes, someone may be able to decipher that. If all else fails, with todays technology, I believe my tank and side panels are good enough to get a good color mix.  Thanks for reading and responding to my post.

LaVern,

The problem with decades old "paint codes" is they are completely meaningless these days for the most part.

That said, this forum has a lot of resources and it's possible a specialty paint company makes the color you are looking for. 

First step in looking up your bike in the Tech Library literature...  specifically there is a "Model Index" that sometimes shows paint colors.... mostly for later models though.

Unfortunately, the 1977 493 series (0200101 to 0300000) does not have paint code listed. 

There is also a "Yamaha ID numbers" list that shows the TY250D (493-200101 to 201551) paint color as "Windy Blue" which corresponds to what you found already. 

Not done yet.  The "Model Index" doc also has a "Color Name" section.  Windy Blue has the abbreviation "WB" with a code of "00J4".

Searching the "Model Index" doc for the "WB" abbreviation unfortunately does not come up with any (hopefully newer) models that used that same paint.  Sometimes you get lucky and find a newer model that the paint companies list a paint match for. 

Didn't help much but maybe a good paint store or Yamaha can do something with the 00J4 paint code.

Finished up the tanks today, that 2K clear is awesome stuff!  I'll wait a few days then cut and buff. 

EDIT:  I guess I should have added the color I used, it's ford's Screaming Yellow D6.

Thanks Wes, thought about using the spray max on the cases but don't want it to be too shiny, I know you can get semi gloss but might just as well save the money and use the PJ1.

Hello
I have a 78 dt250 and was wondering what is recommended to repaint my fenders. The sun has cooked off the surface to the plastic. Under the seat it appears to be painted. Was that a factory thing?I am used to plastics being a solid color that just would turn pink(Honda three wheeler comes to mind).
Anyway I would like to make the old girl look a little better than it's current state.It's just a drive, not a show bike.
TIA. Gnarles

Wondering what rattlecan paints you all have been using to paint engine cases, cylinder, head, exhaust, frame, and bits like kickstarter/pegs/shifter/brake lever for dirt bikes (mines a 79 IT400).

I use Dupli-color low gloss DE1634 heat paint for black engines and pipes. If you like a little more shine then go with semi gloss DE1635. I like low gloss best. For frame i use Dupli-color perfect match universal black bun0100. Sometimes i use Eastwood satin black high temp black on exhaust depending on bike.

Thank you so much for the info. Found it on Summit Racing for a great price. Time to start making the bike purty.
