I retrieve a trashed-out rear fender from my attic that’s the older design without the inner fender reinforcement. It still has the original Yamaha off-road warning label and the dealer sticker so I’m 99% sure the paint is original. The Desert Orange stripe on this fender measures 63-64mm wide (see pic) whereas my other bike cited in my previous post measures about 60mm (can you say “manufacturing variation”?).  Looks like anywhere between 60mm and 64mm is in the ballpark for the rear fender stripe.  Me personally, I’m going for 62mm on the rear fender and 52mm on the front fender. 

As as far as the masking question, neither of my rear fenders appear to have any of the Desert Orange on the underside. The are (were) basically all white on the underside (see pics).  Perhaps some other JT1 owners can chime in and help clarify these details.

Hope this helps.
Regards, Steve

Thanks for the clear pictures- I would agree, no sign of orange on the bottom and you can see the line where it stops on the edge of the fender. Really appreciate the help.
thanks, Rob

Glad to help Rob.
Did you ever get a response to your question regarding a paint code match for the white base color on the JT1’s?  I searched the archives and couldn’t find anything. This would be very useful information as I’m hoping to shoot the color coats on my tins in the spring.
Thanks Steve

Hey Steve, Unfortunately I did not get an answer yet! Did you happen to find a match for the desert orange scouring the paint codes thread? I did not find one yet.

I've seen the company marbles motors has restored some JT1s- possibly they would be kind enough to share the type of paint they used? I don't know if they sell paint though, they may not want to give the color away...
