Scratched Paint, need suggestions

I managed to scrape some pant off of my rear tail fender. Does anyone have any recommendations for a body shop who might be able to fix this? Or a website where I can order the paint?

Thanks!

being that small, i'm gonna go ahead and suggest touch up paint from colorrite.com also. however, i don't condone the use of touch up paint because most of the time people make it look worse using it. just be real steady and try to keep the paint on the area that needs it only.

Thanks for your help. Would you recommend a touch up paint pen or a can with a brush? base needed? Also would i need to do any sanding? I'm new to this if you cant tell..

+1 I recommend putting masking tape all around the area so you keep the touch-up paint ending up on the good stuff. Build it up slowly, it may need 2-3 coats, wait for the first coat to be touch dry before reapplying.

If it were me, I'd stop by my local Yamaha dealer parts department (or give them a call) to see if they have that color of touch-up paint in stock.
