I got my bike fixed



I took off the engine and took it to a lawn mover/ small machine repair shop. In two hours the guy called me back and said he got the bolt out. Now I have to get new bolts and put it back together. I also plan on painting my muffler with high temp paint, but i'm not sure what color to paint it. Do you think I could also paint my engine now that I got it off?
that's great news, steveadicks!!! good to know it lives to ride another day :D

i have no idea how to advise you on paint...i know i'm going to keep mine as is because i think cooling is a major factor with these things 8)
One of my 48cc engines came painted gray/silver. It has looked better, longer than the plain casting. except for... the time I rode it 20 miles with a 50:1 mix. (Amsoil) Burned all the paint off the cooling fins. But.....I was clocked at 33 mph....with a 24" rear wheel. So.... Hi-temp paint, but I wouldn't paint the jug. just a thought.
