paint akrapovic?

So I think I settled on getting an Akrapovic SO. Only problem is I'm trying to keep my bike all black and the akra is carbon tipped with the Ti can. I was just going to wrap the mid pipe but has anyone painted the Ti portion of the can? Is this a bad idea for any reason?

If anything get it powdercoated man.

It doesnt get THAT hot but still it will discolor any paint that you use on it and won't be that strong against abrasion.

I personally wouldn't touch that sexiness.... but its your bike man and you can set her up however you want :)

We don't live in communist Russia.... hehe
