Can you paint the motor?

2001 yz250 motor completely out but still together. Is there a safe way to painting the motor to make it look brand new?


I wouldn't paint it. Scrub it.

I've had really good results by cleaning with brake cleaner to get all oil off and then sand blasting.  Paint with VHT engine enamel right away and DON'T use any primer.  Let it sit for a week to really harden up before putting it to use.  I've painted heads and side covers, never a whole engine.  If the engine was together you would have to paint the exposed gaskets too.
