    Maybe high heat engine paint instead of pc? I don’t know how well pc holds up to heat.

    Powder coat is put onto a part as a powder (go figure) and then put into an oven to melt on…. doesn’t really take to much heat to make it melt back off.

    What I’m really asking is would it be a good idea and look good to paint it orange or leave it the way it is. I actually thought of the heat and would probably go with something thats durable against heat

    I for one wouldn’t like the look, looks like you’re trying too much, plus you need super high temp paint or it will melt and smell like shit.

    After thinking about it I do believe it might look a little strange.

    this is what it would look like if it were orange. keep in mind that there will be Repsol (black orange and red) fairings on the bike when i do this.

    since i dont have the luxury of having photoshop i used microsoft paint lol

    I probably wouldn’t do the can in orange. Everything else would look good though.

    its gonna be unique wither way. i dont want to be riding around like that if it dont look good. what i might do is plast-dip it since it will peel off and not damage the original color and see how it looks and go off that.

    okay but keep in mind, if you plastidip it, DO NOT turn that thing on and let the plasti dip get hot or you’re SCREWED! lol

    ya I would see how it looks and peel it off right away. then decide whether to paint it or not.
