High Heat Spray Paint

Looking to paint my exhaust pipe and rear sets a flat black. Has anyone used a rattle can with good results over the long haul???

IMO I'd get it. Powdered. Much more durable. Although u should try it. Let us know how well it holds up. Prep is key.

As with any paintjob, prep work is king. Clean the pipes with a degreaser & silicone remover made specifically for paint prep. You can find it at most auto paint supply shops. I've bought it a Wallyworld too.

Then scuff the pipe with a scotchbrite pad or fine grit sandpaper. Paint will stick a lot better when it has plenty of surfaces to grab onto. Then clean it again with the degreaser.

Just before you spray paint, use to tackcloth to remove any dust or lint. Overlap each stroke by about 50% but don't lay it too thick.

If you do it right. Prep work will take 2-3 hours. Actual spraying about 20mins.

Ive seen it on a stock Vrod exhaust and it looked good. They guy said he had it on there for a while and it was still looking sharp. He did mention how he did it and basically followed the above comments. It was the high heat proof paint that he used.

Scuff it with Scotchbrite and then wipe it down with laquer thinner.
I've used the VHT or Rustoleum bbq black with good results.

+1 to Patrick as I did that on my 500r

But, Scootertrash PC'ed my 600rr's exhaust, and it held up great. He used the high heat stuff.

check out the VHT 'ceramic' in a can...it has little fillaments in it that give a great finished flat look, no shine to it at all...holds up to heat great--I've painted all of my turbo parts on cars with it and it holds up great with proper prep

as mentioned above, the prep is key



and thanks, Joe

Just remember the high temp paints might take a few heat cycles to cure fully. Don't touch the surface until you've gotten it hot a few times.

BBQ grill paint or the hi-temp stuff I use on my turbo parts holds up to heat really well. My rear sets and levers wore through pretty quick but I skimped on prep time.

I painted my rear sets and they held up good except on the foot pegs, then I just had em powdered and no problems. My custom exhaust was powdered by the maker and its holding on just fine.

Auto parts store VHT,
Several colors to choose from and it has stuck on my pipes for a couple years. All the way from the head to the muffler.

They make a couple types, one is rated for, I think, to 1400deg. Get the highest temp rated you can, prep like they told you above and you'll be fine.

+1 on the VHT with good prep and if you can keep the parts small enough to bake it evenly.

Obviously profesional coating is going to be more durable but you can get good results out of a can as long as your expectations are reasonable.
