Just realize, that unless its a high temp engine paint - itll start burning up soon as it gets hot, itll literally smoke and start turning them brown

Judging by what I have seen that Nick has built I think he knows a thing or two about what to do and what not to do to engines.

As long as you use the right paint it'll be fine. I painted the whole exhaust on a couple bikes with some VHT header paint and it's held up fine to the heat cycles...

Ditto ^

I used vht on all my quads. And my trx450r header will actually glow after about 30 minutes of riding. No chipping/discoloration at all
