Default Re: Over heating? Black finish vs. Standard Finish

if you think about it, these engines run at temps in the 250 - 300 degree 100 degree ambient air temp will actually cool the engine.
Black disspiates heat much better than silver or chrome.
Look at Harley's...their engines are black most of the time.
look at older air cooled 2 stroke dirt bike engines...they were all flat black.
Black is fine.
