    Hey there I'm currently building a black bike and was wondering if there was any disadvantages in painting my 49cc motor? like overheating ect? wouldn't mind painting it in black heat engine enamel.
    Cheers Josh.

    ALOT of people painting their engines and havent heard of any problems yet. as long as its high temp paint i cant see a problem. ill be doing my engine in black. a painted engine looks good!
