I've read through this thread and am a bit confused, my colour scheme is NH196

Yet the white is also listed as NH196, if I go to one of these paint suppliers bwill they recognise it?

Is there a close, good enough match, I only need a very small bit to cover a repair to the seat cowl.

Likewise Red R134

The white is commonly known as Honda Ross White and the red is known as Fighting Red. They're both very commonly used colours throughout the Honda range, so I would imagine most half decent paint suppliers should be able to sort you out.

Indeed, please ignore my earlier post above, went on the RS Bike Paint website and found the colour scheme for my bike and ordered the white and red and clear lacquer aerosols, not cheap !!!! £55.80 I am beginning to wonder about how much of a money pit this "cheap" bike is turning out to be ;)

I have just looked at RSpaints website and noticed that they do not list UK1990 NC colours,
But do list 1991-92RL111 imports,now the colours they list for this model are,
ROSS WHITE.
FIGHTING RED.
DARK BLUE.
WISTERIA BLUE.

Now if you were painting the 1990 uk model the red. and the blues. are correct,the white should be crystal white NH-193P and not NH-196.

Are you sure, all the UK NK30s I have seen [and mine] are Ross white, not pearlescent.
I thought the panels were interchangable [Jap/UK] colour wise.
[Back of seat unit and underneath front fairing is different structure.]
