You'll have to know at least the model & year (of the paint you want to match) to get the right white. Color Rite has exact match paints (I have white/chappy red/clear coat for my '89 XT600), try it out here.
The White/blue XTs use a completely different white, it has some purple in it.

If it doesn't list the model, it just means it's the same color as a previous/later year model's color. Yamaha 0036 is the typical white-white Yamaha used on many of the XTs & Tenere models, like this:
0036 White white, and 00E1 "Chappy" red frame


Dunno if this works for Oz or NZ, but it's a start.
