Matte finish on the meters & Satin Finish on the Engine Side Covers. That will do the job. Suggest you to try out the powder coating for Meter covers if the metal is in good condition and that will be the closest bet.

Have a good time.

PS: Am trying to search for the color codes for silver but unable to fetch them. Yes silver was the first color that came out in metallic finish.

Try Dupont and you will find Yamaha racing Blue shade which is the closest bet to get RD's blue. Remember to keep the base paint shade as peacock blue if you decide to paint it in Blue.

Thanks for the info Mahesh. Will keep the meters matt and engine covers glossy.

Still stuck on the Silver paint shade and Decals.

Wish someone with a tank and side covers in original state could help out with the decals.

Well, during my search, found someone with a NOS OEM sticker set here in Bangalore. It is very much for sale. The only catch (as is usually the case with NOS RD350 parts!) was the asking price - INR 9000/-. I couldn't say much. Politely refused and kept the phone down.

Wow 9K? I remember buying them back in 99 for 530 Rs. The shopkeeper was very eager to dispose them off. In-fact he was surprised when I queried him with a set of stickers. Some invaluable stuff that I got from the same shop was a brand new Saree Guard, Front Mudguard & loads of engine stuff.

Yes they are very good replicas and are of highest quality. Makes sense to pay 5500 Rs compared to the old NOS of 9K which am sure the gum will give way when exposed to our natural vagaries.

Been using them on my bike as well without much of a hassle.

Never use old decals, even i had them and while applying the clear coat they started coming out as the gum behind them will not be so sticky due to prolonged period of storage, apart from online option many guys in Bangalore are doing this and they do quality work.
