Default '11 XC Pearl White Paint Codes?

Forgive me if I'm beating a dead horse, but I picked up my new (to me) XC 2 days ago and I've found myself in need of the paint code(s)

I ordered some handlebars from KST Kustoms. I really wanted the polished (chrome) finish, but all they had in stock were the high gloss black powder coated. Then I see pics of some custom vics w/ paint matched bars and I got the bright idea to do it to mine... On top of that, I ordered the primered single din kit from Rusty Jones. My idea got brighter and I decided since my inner fairing would be off anyway and the paint shop manager where I work owes.me a handful of favors, I could have all of the parts painted. I even gave him a small bottle.of touch-up paint that the prwvious owner gave me, figuring he'd be able to match it. Simple, right? Apparently, not so much. Lol. Does anyone have or know where I can get the "recipe" for the pearl white on the '11 XC's? Keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks in advance!

Touch up direct, Amazon or Victory. Paid 400 for mine in quarts. It's also available in rattle cans.

Touch up Direct. Perfect match. Just painted hard lowers. I think the paint code is 566.

I bought my touch up direct paint through Amazon same price. I just wanted the power of Amazon behind me if anything went wrong. Mine came leaking into the bag it was shipped in. They sent me more when I let them know. I have no idea how working with TUD would have been so I can't say anything about them. But I was more than happy with my purchase.

I'm actually looking for the mixture. We have access to about every color of paint possible in order to mix up the actual color (s) I'm trying to save time and money, as I have a few more things I'd like to get done to the bike before the weather breaks

why not take a side cover to where you buy your paint and have them analyze it. They could give you the breakdown of the colors I would think

From what I've read the pearl paints are almost impossible to match without using original codes from the original paint supplier. Many who tried ended up repainting an entire piece rather than spend an inordinate amount of time and $$$ trying to match, only to be disappointing with the results.

Touch-ups would be really noticeable without the original but sometimes the colors were close enough that a fender or side panel could be done because there was no overlap.

Best solution I found from those with personal experience was to get someone to re-do the pearl on the entire bike. Hold onto the leftovers for future touch-ups. Keep in mind though that after a couple of years that paint in the can may no longer perfectly match the paint on a bike that's been exposed to the air and sunlight.

For just the handlebars you may have to settle for as best as they can do.

Not all those who wander are lost.

My pearl white is factory painted and they are not a perfect match. Find the brightest white you can and you can get the rattle can of pearl from the dealer. It will be a really close match

I have repainted just about my entire bike. Saddlebags, fenders, inner & outer fairing, windshield, etc. Side covers are still stock.

I have parts that are colour matched on my bike... Nobody can tell the difference except other painters.
