Default Over heating? Black finish vs. Standard Finish

Hey guys,

Last night I picked up a black, silver and brown rimed Huffy Cranbrook.
I would really like a black finish skyhawk 66cc
I live in Arizona where temperatures will soon be steadily in the 100's if not much above at most times during the summer. Will a black finish motor overheat easier in the desert heat?
If, so, are there precautions or after market parts I can install to keep my engine cooler, or should I just stick with the standard, unpainted standard finish?
Can someone please give me some suggestions on after market parts to install to help with engine life for daily use of about 20 miles per day, in the desert weather. Other than maintenence, are there cylinder heads that can provide better cooling?

Thanks for your input
