Well I cannot seem to find a paint code and was wondering if someone out there would happen to know or a modern day equivalent.

Dana doesn't share paint code formulas, but may be a source to consider for getting the work done.

You could try Ralph at Paintworkz. He is the authority on Z1 paint.
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

vintagemotorcyclepaint on EB has a few colors, but I don't know if either of the reds shown in his listings would be correct.
One is for a 1000 Ltd & the other for a 900 Ltd. In the description he mention Dana WFO.
I don't know anything about the seller or if he does special orders.

I found the guy by searching EB for Kawasaki Sundance Blue

There are no codes from Kawaski to get paint mixed from. I sell a match for the 78 KZ1000 green but not the red. The red used a flesh / pink solid base coat, a silver flake mid coat, and a candy red top coat.
