? about 10r green paint mix

I'm about to paint up my trackbike so I went and had some PPG mixed up but it seemed a little weird. the Profit (a tool to read all the colors that make up one particular color) came up with a paint mix named Signal Green! From what I can tell the color is just a tiny bit yellow. Is there anyone out there that has gotten the zx10r green mixed and come up with the same thing?

well I finally got busy and painted my track bike. Like I said the colors close but not perfect! needless to say I'm pretty happy with it. all be it is pretty green... Ill have to see if I shouldn't paint the lower and side covers black to brake it up a bit.after I get the bike all back together I'll photo it and see what you all think.

I have to say it looks pretty damn close, but then again my bike isnt green. Looks good though.

Hooligan, do you think that if I went to my PPG dealer and asked for Signal Green that they would know what I'm talking about? I need to paint my bodywork and Sherwin Williams wouldn't even try to match Kawi green.

I painted the lower on my green 10. PPG has a formula for code 7F. It was a little off but I tinted it and it matches perfect.the PPG dealer is not the who you need to see. Find a good painter and he should be able to tint the color to match perfect.
