You can get the paint from Color Rite. I think they call it matt metallic. (something close to that - do a forum 'search' - there is a special clear coat that is also required to get the right gloss and match)

Be prepared for hefty sticker shock. They are quite 'proud' of their product.

I have some left in a rattle can from a project that ended poorly. I don't think there is enough left to paint the bits you have or I'd send it to you.

I have an '03 919 with the smoke grey color. When I looked for paint, Color Rite were the only ones that had it. In addition to the color you need an eggshell topcoat (instead of clearcoat) to get the correct sheen.
