Problems having my fairing painted

I took my fairing to a couple of auto repair shops today to get an estament on getting it painted. I took the front fender with me so they could match the color Candy lime green. Non of the shops could match it or find a paint code for it. The only thing I could find was on the ColorRite web site. It does not give a paint code just the paint you could order. Im kinda at a lost. If I order the paint im afraid they want warrenty the work. I just dont know what to do. I dont want to leave it black I want it to match the bike.

I am currently in the same situation. Want to match the 2010 Blue Saphire color for the new fairing, saddle bags (both currently black). I wouldn't think it would be this difficult. My son's girlfriends dad does custom paint, and I am waiting until he finishes a couple of projects before asking him about mine. Would appreciate what you find out.

I called my local Kawasaki dealer to see if they new the paint code. The nice lady ask for the vin# said sometimes it brought it up. The code she gave me was 17P the Color rite site did not show a code. She said I could call them if I needed more info. I called one of the places I went today an give them the code. He said they would cotact the paint supplyer an get back with me.

C50T-VN800B there is a auto body paint supply house in town an I never thought of going by there. I will go by there Monday an see what they say. Thank

The code for Candy Imperial Blue is 25U
The code for the Metallic Midnight Sapphire Blue from the 2010 Voyager is 19A
Thanks. This is what the dealer called it, since it's a different blue than the '09 blue. I am sure someone can match it.
