A quart of color would likely paint the entire bike. Your painter simply didn't do a correct or proper color match. As has been suggested, return both parts and point out the difference in a quick show and tell. In actuality, they shouldn't have ever left their shop unless you paid for a bargain basement 'close enough' job at the outset. The Polaris paint code is mostly useless to anyone outside of Polaris Industries, Victory Motorcycles division. It's an internal code for them, it means next to nothing to a body shop.
I had a local to me painter (Colors On Parade, Rossville, GA) match my gloss pearl white on two different occasions. It's an amazing match. I see a lot of color matches in my line of work. I think my Polaris paint code is 566 which for Victory simply means gloss pearl white. The painter had to use 4 base coats, 3 pearl coats and 2 or 3 clear coats but the end result is excellent regardless of the light conditions. I 'think' your color also has a metallic layer in it. If your metal flake is anything like mine, it's a very specific type, size and color. One size/type.color of metal flake does not work for all occasions and it will most definitely change the base tone, the undertone and the visual color effect of the job.
Bring the parts back and let them try it again, on their dime. If they can't or won't, your only real options are to move on to a painter who can or live with it as is.
All the best,

Who turns Victory into defeat? Polaris Industries, that's who.
