I've purchased another set of bodywork for my bike and changed the colour scheme. I have informed My insurers and they don't quote based on the colour
and if there is no change to the value of the bike then they are fine with it. My registration document guide says I have to inform DVLA but if my intention is to use the new colour during summer and change back to the old colours for winter, should I bother?
Do I have to continually update them everytime I swap the bodywork? Will DVLA charge me for the privilege?

forms usually only show the primary colour not a combination. If there is a common colour on both schemes use this one.
If at some point our friendly boys in blue happen to run a PNC on you and it comes back as a ''black honda suzikawa'' and your new body work is green,white,orange etc etc you might well have some explaining and convincing it's not a ''cloned'' bike

Yeah, I had already thought about a common colour description but sadly I don't think that leaving just the bar ends on in the original colour would keep me out of trouble.
I take the point that trying to explain why I haven't bothered to register the change of colour to the good officers that help keep us safe, might very well be tiresome and a waste of everyones time. I'll register the change, having to do it twice a year in the comfort of my home is a much easier option all round. Thanks.
I used to drive an old land rover that was painted in Zebra stripes (hence the forum name). I changed the colour section on the V5 to black/white and they accepted it, perhaps you can do the same with your two colours?
What if you had multiple colours?
Would DVLA accept Rainbow or multicolour.
What if you have no MAIN colour
