I know I've seen it before...

I'm wanting to paint my oem exhaust to give it a different look, until I can afford a slip on... I know I have seen a thread on how to properly clean and prep the exhaust before you paint it, but I can't find it anywhere.. If someone could post that thread, or any tips would be awesome.

I've heard that even high temp paint will eventually flake off. Have you thought about ceramic coating it?

Why don't you just put up with the bad look of the OEM pipe and save your money!? At least the sight of it will make you want to save up to change it quickly.

you could take it off the bike. Clean it up real good (get all the grease, oil, and dirt off of it). Then rough it up with some sandpaper. Then spray it all with a couple coats of some high temp self etching primer. After that Spray it with some coats of High temp engine enamel. Should work, just time consuming

Any auto parts store has high temp spray paint for engine blocks and headers.

I've done a few HEADERS! they come out well. Only one flaked, but the steel was rusty and i didnt clean it off. The stainless headers on my BMW never even chipped. Stained a bit from the oil that dripped on it and burn't off.

conclusion. rust, no bueno. no rust spray paint it.

I have the high temp paint, I just wasn't for sure if I should do anything to it before I paint it. Suppose to rain all day tomorrow, so I think I'll pull it off an see what happens after work.

The closest place on that website is two hours away. I'm in the middle of nowhere... Small city near me might have something, but I'm being cheap and trying to save..

In that case give it a shot and post pics! Not much to lose IMO except some time. What colour are you planning to paint it?

High temp spray paint will work well, just make sure to take your time and do the prep work. It will make the paint last longer.

I have the 07 red/silver scheme, so I think I'm going to keep it simple and go matte black.

Guess I should have posted this before I bought the paint. I'll look at the can tomorrow... I can't remember the brand.

I did mine in the middle of the winter lol temp didn't matter at least when I did it. Did 2 or 3 coats and installed and idled bike for a few min to cure paint. It'll smoke when its curing, looks kinda cool lol

Just thought I'd give an update, but I've done about 500+ miles since I did the exhaust, and the paint is holding up great! Washed it a few times too, and it looks great.. A few spots are on the pipe, but that was due to me not hitting it with enough coats.
