    For recoating the motor, if you have the money have all the parts powder coated by a bike specialist powder coater, that way the masking will be taken care of, then it’ll look factory brand new!
    Otherwise use ordinary rattle spray cans of paint, grey primer then ordinary spray paint. Don’t worry about high temp paint etc as the engine never gets that hot. (I’ve used this meathod for years, including heavily thrashed two strokes, never had any paint peel etc) When you first fire it up it will smoke as the paint gets baked, but will look great.
    Exhaust pipes/headers can be coated using pot belly stove/fireplace paint usually by a powder coaters.
    Keep up the good work!

    It looks cool, but your back will sure get wet on a rainy day. 🙂 Here in Oregon, we have rain nine months of the year, so that’s an important consideration here.

    idk if u knows this but my plan on this bicke to have it as minimalistic as possible any thing that not been used got to go:] so i took a look at that bulky headlight bracket and decided to start cutting hah i really like stock big headlight its one of the signature of fz750 so i decided to keep it and modifie bracket for it to have it fit close to the frame
