    The Roadster and the R3T cowlings are the same. I don't like the chrome and have a beautiful R3T but have idea what Pacific Blue is. You'd think the seller would post pic of it instead of a parts manual pic.

    Google is your friend - Triumph Pacific Blue.
    From an old post of mine Paint codes

    It was a Classic two tone color from 2006 at least. The Triumph Touch up paint part number is T3120300-JI and the Triumph alpha code JI may appear at the end of painted items individual part numbers.

    It is still a **** cheap set of new radiator shrouds that you could repaint your choice of color.

    Paint codes to match yours below. The UK listed bike above stated that the paint was Eclipse Blue Pearl & Azure Blue Metallic, but I would check the metallic bit or you may not get a match.:

    I don't see many Rockets that are the color of mine and it really is beautiful. I had the shrouds on my other Rocket painted by a local body shop. I am not interested in having the ones I have painted though because it is fairly expensive and not worth it to me. $60 for a set of shrouds is a pretty good deal though.

    I now recall the Pacific Blue color. There was one for sale at Pensacola Triumph next to the 07 I bought. It was a Classic and mine was a Classic Tourer. It was my first choice.

    The color looks close enough that it might work with mine. This America is for sale at a town near me and he describes it as a Sapphire Blue. Looks somewhat the same as that Triple in the picture.

    I just sent a note to the seller asking to clarify if it is the pearl blue or metallic. Might work.

    Oh and on the picture of mine by the water, it is inaccurate because I now have a nice set of deep throated TORs and love 'em.

    The Black set I have fitted WERE Pacific Blue and sprayed by a UK dealer to Phantom Black. Was told they had bought 10 sets VERY cheap from Triumph. It was about 6 years ago, mind.

    Just bought the cowling. The seller responded to my note with a photo. It's obviously a different blue but I think it will work better that the eye shattering chrome. I always thought my Rocket Classic looked like a chrome radiator heading down the road followed by a big bike until I had it painted black.

    Will post a pic when I get it installed.

    They still have cheap Cardinal Red sets in the UK from Jack Lilley Triumph. I got one in 2016 and swapped it for a good Chrome set with a forum member as mine had been scuffed and painted black
    £44.16 for UK EU buyers with VAT and just £36.80 for non EU /UK international like USA and Oz.
