Not the full answer but I found that RAL 9005 seemed to be the right colour.

PJ1 Satin Black engine paint, great stuff, goes on well and stays on. Once dry, in most cases it's almost indistinguishable from the original.

All exhaust paints require heat to cure properly , start bike for so many minutes then allow to cool repeat as instructed . I found it easier to use an oven , do not under any circumstances allow your other half to find out , as the paint is soft enough to scratch or even take finger prints until cured .

I know your post was a while back but if it's any use:

E-Tech XHT extremely high temperature paint is very good, have used it on engine blocks/exhaust parts and gives good results!
