Default Re: I'm a rich man

I've used plain old spray paint on engines, both 2 and 4 stroke and never had any heat issues. I like to match the engine to the bike color and I've used DupliColor, Krylon, Rustoleum and model airplane paint and none of them have been affected by engine heat. That includes the area near the exhaust port/ pipe flange.
I think engine temperature is overrated. They just don't get that hot to need special high-temp paint.
