If you're wanting to match the paint on your bike, you can take a panel to just about any store that sells auto paint and they can scan the paint and mix some custum paint for you. Just be sure to take a piece that has a good flat section. They'll need a flat area to put the scanner against. Even if it's just a little curved, that can allow light in and will through the results off. I did this with my Candy Thunder Blue and got a perfect match.

Motorcycle Paint :: Touch Up, Aerosol & Refinish Paint - ColorRite, they are kinda expensive but worth it.
The Kawasaki green color requires a base coat and a top coat to match exactly. It is kind of a bitch, good luck.

Anyone know the official name of the '00-'01 green?

On that colorRite website they have it listed as Metallic Lime Green, is that right?
