Powder coating

Anyone have their engine powder coated?? I'd like to see some colors/themes.. also curious as to the cost (roughly) to have an engine powder coated.
Tired of my dirty old engine, and considered black.. but wondering if a metallic themed color would look nice. maybe even two-toned...

Re: Powder coating

I'll probably go with the paint option then... maybe this winter when riding season's not quite as nice, since my bile'll be out of commision anyway. I'll probaby need help tearing down and putting it back on though.

Re: Powder coating

even tho they have an oil cooler, the motors are still air cooled and it seems like if you paint it it could make it run hotter. side cases I can understand, but I dunno about the jugs. if people have had no problems with painting the bulk of the engine please speak up so I don't look like a dork (and maybe I could so it myself)

tail-chop, half-mod-cans, nichols flywheel, LSL clip-ons, LED tail-light, alien headlight fairing, +2 rear sprocket &amp; EK X-ring<br />
