Can i just use VHT (750 C) matt black paint on the engine without taking it out of the frame? IS it going to fuck anything up ? its a sv650 gen2

I'd obviously clean the engine and dry it well first.

Several people have done it and as long as you tape everything (EVERYTHING) else off, it may produce passable results.

It won't ever look as clean or as good as a true engine painting, but it does work. Anything that needs to breathe, still needs to be open, but everything else will just tear the paint when you go to remove it.

three reasons:

1 every time i try to take any part off of my bike, it breaks.

2 I do not have the mechanical skill , time or patience to take the engine out.

3 I can always change my mind.

Thanks for the tip guys.

if its a true rat theres no problems doing what you suggest but you will get a ratty finish in most cases, Sperex VHT gives a pretty crappy finish anyway PJI case paint is much better & a lot easier to touch up & BBQ paint sticks & lasts well on a clean surface
