Some Harley-Davidson color codes are: 98609 DAV, 98609 BYM, 98609 BRD, 98609 BHT and 98609 DAT. These paint codes can refer to both paint color and finish. They can also indicate paint additives.
98609 BYM is a code for black denim, where denim refers to the finish of the paint. 98609 BRD is a code for black pearl, where pearl is a paint additive. Both are black, but denim has a flat finish, while the pearl has a shiny finish with a translucent appearance. 98609 DH is the code for vivid black, a black option that has a shiny finish with no paint additives.
