Finding Paint for Your Snowmobile

Maybe it’s a rock chip. Maybe it’s an accessory screaming out for a fresh coat. Maybe it’s the custom look you’ve been dying to create. Either way, you’ll want paint that matches what’s on your Polaris snowmobile.

To order that paint, you must bring the paint code to your Polaris Dealer. Paint must be ordered at a dealer.

To find the paint code, go to the online parts catalog.

For example, let’s find paint that matches the black nosepan on this 2018 800 Switchback Pro-S.

800 Switchback Pro S

Select “Snowmobile,” “2018” and “800 Switchback Pro-S” from the drop-down menus on the parts catalog page.

Select “BODY, FENDERS AND NOSEPAN ASM.” under the assembly menu.

The diagram for that assembly shows that you’re looking for part 10.

Scroll down to the parts listings and No. 10 is the nosepan. Note that there are two listings for No. 10 because not all 800 Switchback Pro-S models have the same color scheme. Here there is a black nosepan and a white nosepan. We’re looking for a black nosepan, so we know we want part number 2635042-070. “070” is the paint code. Take that paint code to your local Polaris Dealer (to find a dealer near you, use the Dealer Locator). Your dealer can tell you 070 is the paint code for Gloss Black and help you order the proper paint.

Parts listing

Paint codes will be three or four digits. If you’re looking for only one of the two colors in a two-tone paint scheme, your dealer can find the correct paint when provided with the four-digit code and your VIN.

You will have the option of choosing aerosol cans, quart paint or a touch-up bottle. Your dealer can help you choose the right option for the type of painting you’re planning on doing.
