Kawasaki Color Codes Question

I am trying to find the PPG paint code for my 2010 Metalic Spark Black bike. Colorrite makes it easy to look up color codes online however their paint is almost 2x what the local automotive paint shops would charge (when you include shipping) for mixing up a custom matching color spray can. Almost all the local shops use PPG or Sherwin Williams automotive paints.

How can I cross reference the Color Rite color code to a PPG or other paint manufacturers paint code? Any of the paint shops I called say they can get an exact color match if only I can give them a paint code they can find in their cross reference system.
