I do not know, but this may or may not help: the boys at the body shop tell me you can call Yamaha with your VIN and get an answer.(as to correct color) Also they tell me (some shops) have a conputer scan thing that will match your paint out of all the 100's or maybe 1000's of differtent mixtures, tints , company ect. True or not, that's what they tell me.
At least something to look at Good luck.

Check the "Model Label" (probably located under the seat) not to be confused with VIN.

I don't have a 950 but that's where Yamaha puts its model specific identification for ordering parts (presumably to include color-coded panels). Unfortunately my Yamaha Service Manual offers no decryption information for the label's information, but if you happily disgorge the numbers/letters to a Yamaha Emergency Room Provider, you might gain the wisdom you seek

Alternatively, check the legend in the following diagram:



Good luck

I Looked under the seat as per my owners manual.
That is where it is at on a 1300.
mine was made in 2008 as per vehicle ID on steering head pipe.
Mine says 3D87-010 under that the Capital letter B. So what does it mean?
Looking at an on line parts Catalog for a XVS13AY Spells it out.

3D87 means it is made for 49 states.
010 is production Code.
3D88 is California.
The letter B is the color Type.
Color type B = 0390 color code
Bluish White Cocktail 1.
Abbreviation BWC1.

if it was an A it would be Black Metallic, code 0903, abbreviation SMX.
apparently they made the 1300 in two colors in 2008.

I would think a 950 would be similar in code.
