Touch-up paint

I took the ugly warning stickers off my black 08 Vee today. The 2 on the plastic part of the fairing came off easy, but the one on the tank was a little more difficult.

I used a razor blade to help get it off, and even though I was careful I scratched the paint a little. Just a short, thin scratch, but its there, and its all the way thru the paint.

Is there a good touch-up paint I can use to fix this area? I'd like to make sure it doesn't rust, and maybe hit my mistake a little.

This was the place to stop first.

I'm sure your dealer may have a matching color for you to use.
