Paint on Crankcase and Jug - Sachs Prima G3

So, I'm painting the motor on my Sachs Prima, and I've got a question for y'all.

I'm using engine paint, "high heat" or whatever they call it. If is good up to 500*, which should never be a problem here. But there is a bake process after spraying. It says to take the parts up to the highest heat they will be experiencing during use. I'm thinking i can just take the case up to 200* (lowest number listed on the paint tds) with no problems. But should I take the jug any higher? I can't imagine it getting much hotter than 300* or so. Thoughts?

I used regular Rustoleum on more than one motor and after years of use , they still look good . Do not put it on too thick . Only enough to cover , as paint acts as an insulator . That means it will retain heat longer .

Anyway , I wouldn't be too worried about that baking business .

Right on, I might do it anyway, just because I'd like the finish to be hard as possible before I put it back together. But maybe I can get away with using the house oven with the wife is gone...

You are probably correct. But I ride mopeds and flirt with danger, that's why she likes me...right?

If/when i find a woman who likes mopeds, or would at least tolerate the antics that go with them, i would find myself on one knee.

Hard ???

The paint I put on my motors gets hard enough it takes aircraft paint remover to take it off .

So , save the oven and keep your lady happy . ;)

What paint do you use? I just chose what i found at menards in an aerosol can. Thinking about getting a spray gun to do the tank and body though.

Rustoleum professional emamel for everything. Comes in a bigger silver can. You dont need high heat paint for cases and cylinders. 500* isnt hot enough to bake off enamel paint.

I'm not as picky as Daniel . I use regular ol' Rustoleum . Nothing special and cheap enough . Like I said above , apply just enough to cover .
