  • Painting chrome black

    So my 06’ Godzilla roadie is almost complete. But that engine just stands out to much for the look I’m going for. So I have looked through the forum and found some good info on painting the engine, Jugs with the fins polished. Ect. My main question is and now I don’t have a lot of experience working on motorcycle, I’m an auto painter by trade. So sorry I don’t know this but can the heads be taken off with out much work and can the cam cover, trans cover ect come off with out much trouble or will there be oil and trans fluid, cause I really would love to get this engine blacked out.

    I keep wanting to do this, since I like the look of a black engine. Who here has painted one in the frame? Would love to hear any tips thoughts, troubles, etc that you would have after doing it.

    All three covers are easy to remove but yes, they have oil behind them. When I removed my transmission cover (after I drained it), I had to loosen the exhaust to reach all the allen bolts.

      Good to know. I’m not worried about the mechanics side of it. I’m pretty good with that just don’t want to tear into the engine to much since it runs really good. Was thinking of picking up a used engine and going all out with a big bore, ported heads bigger carb. But that’s $$$$ and since it runs great why mess with it when it’s just cosmetics that I really want to change
