Anyone know the rattle-can yellow for '76/'77 RM's?

Not sure if there is a change in the yellows from TM's to '76/'77 RM's, I painted an RM80B tank a few years ago with a rattle-can, it looked perfect but I can't remember the colour, pretty sure it was a Duplicolor (with 2-pack clear over).  I seem to think the TM yellow is a little more pale than the RM? TIA

Suzuki called them the same colour. PHLOLINA YELLOW but your right, different shades depending on models. Tms are more green balance than the the later models that have more a red balance. Most paint shops can mix you a spray tin of Phlolina as its still used on the hyabusa and Sv series. if you have a sample they can scan it to get your pretty spot on.
for RMs Rustoleum John Deere Yellow is a pretty good match.
