Unlike vehicles, motorcycle manufacturers are very tight lipped about "Paint codes". So more then likely you will not find anyone that can give you a "Paint Code". One company pretty much makes all the paint for all the manufactures. Click Here.
I am not sure of your recourses but if you have to pay a "Jobber" to get a perfect color match then you will probably have a lot of money wrapped up in the paint by the time they are done tinting and doing test panels. If you don't have good recourses, I would just buy the paint from them.

Good luck on whatever works for you.

I found my Raven paint (Black Metalic X) at:

They also sell aerosol cans and clear coat.

I just bought touch up paint and it looks good, not sure what the cans or bulk paints look like, but I would assume the same.

I found this one on another message board a long time ago. It's Yamaha Blue. PPG - DBC4798, I used it and it looks perfect to me. I painted the whole bike so I cant tell you how well it blends to the original paint.
