Excellent bit of deduction :) and you are spot on with the year. Scorched yellow was on my short list but isn't it a metallic yellow?

Triumphs, but no Rocket just now.

I must say the yellow on your tank doesn’t look quite right. Scorched Yellow had more of a gold look, which is why I alluded to a respray. I think you’re right that it was metalic but can’t recall exactly. Same colour was used on early Daytona 675 and Speed Triple so logic suggests metallic. Maybe repair/custom paint shop could help you match it.

Yep, those pics confirm it and they are definitely a metallic finish and mine is 'flat' (base coat and lacquer) so it looks like I will have to get it matched as you suggest.
Ta very much for the help 👍

Except "Yellow gear" is now painted white, ya crusty old salt!
Blasphemy!!! Yellow gear is, well, yellow!!!

Actually that is a good thing, now you can't accuse people of painting their cars on the weekends at the GSE shack as easily!!!

There are a few Triumph Yellows, and I recently sold a NOS Scorched Yellow Rocket III flyscreen that was going to be Phantom Blacked. by new owner.

Above: Racing Yellow was used for the Rocket 111 2005 Custom Gold Flame version too.

Rocket 111 2006
- Scorched Yellow (FG) Scorched Yellow IVC L4819 T3120300-FG or FE Scorched Yellow+ IVC L4666 T3120300-FE)

CUSTOM PAINT KIT, FLAMES, RACING YELLOW/GOLD FLAMES A9708073-ZFAE Racing Yellow w/ Gold Flames $2,340.00

Once you include all of the two tone Classic versions missing from this old thread there must be at least 20 Triumph factory Rocket IIII paint versions.
