    Buell Paint "Arctic White"

    I have been looking for an original seat cowel to match the original paint on my white 03 XB9R. I found a seat cowel online that is described as "Arctic White". Is this the name of the original paint? And if so is that the only white paint that was used for this year and model?
    thanks.

    The 2003 XB9R was offered in three color schemes as below. Arctic White, as I recall, also available on 2008-2009 R models.

    Arctic white with orange stickers
    Arctic white with blue stickers
    Battle Blue with orange stickers
    Select Silver was the only wheel color offered

    None of it is paint BTW. All of the plastics are full color molded. Makes repair very easy. Heres me doing a red seat cover over a decade ago:

    Thats def good to know. I just got an email saying that they won't be sending me the white seat cowel I ordered because they're out of stock. All they have at twinmotorcycles.com is black, red, blue and saint paul harley davidson buell doesn't have white seat cowels either. I've looked online and all I'm really seeing is the carbon fiber ones, but none in white. If anyone knows anywhere, I can find a white one it would be greatly appreciated.
