no way man. Maybe if you have some crazy candy color or something.
But I'm no painter so I may be wrong. I seem to remember a few people getting their bikes painted in the 3-500 range.

No professional painter in their right mind would accept 750 for a candy paint job, it just wont happen. Ricks Custom Cycle in Garden City MI charges 1200 for a single color paint job. Im about to do a HoK candy(Brandywine, such a beautiful color btw) on a bike and Im already at 600 for materials lmao. Just sayin. Had to get that out of the system...

I Ride: 01 ZX6R, Too many to remember
When I wanted just my left and right lowers painted I had my uncle quote me and he owned a body shop
it was going to be 200 and I had to get the paint which was half pint of pearl chrome yellow, the base, and the clear coat around 80 bucks
so 280 for just the lowers not the rest of the bike

On my local forum a dude charges 500 for single color paint jobs and only based on car OEM colors. This is assuming no need for major repair in prep and is the "hook up" price.

For a quality paint job, expect $700+

might as well buy new set of fairing for 4 bills instead of ruining your oem paint job. and spending over 500
