I rattle can sprayed all my engine covers and water pump this winter (in a heated garage with a paint booth set up). I used duplicolor engine enamel with ceramic on them. Did a lot of prep-work, primer, black semi-gloss, and clear. Came out looking factory. Baked them in the oven at 200 for 20 mins and let it set for a few days before reinstalling. Good match with the ebony black zzr. My only gripe is that small spots of paint the size of small washers around the bolts chipped off. Kinda pissed about it initially but im over it now and you can't really notice it.

My guards did the same thing so what I did was give it a good wet sand with a 800 or so Then spray primer then color and clear and it's been good so far.

Wow you did a lot of unnecessary work. I painted everything while still on the bike. No primer, just a light scuffing with 600 grit sand paper. I used the same paint you did. I let it all dry a few hours, then took the bike for a ride. The engine warmth baked it on. It has been on there for going on four years and the only paint that came off was on the stator cover when I dumped the bike in September. The Duplicolor engine enamels are great and only require very little prep work. I'm pretty sure the can says no primer is needed too.

I know i probably did a little overkill but i was bored haha. I was off work for nearly 3 months due to a hip surgery so once i was on my feet during that time i did alot to my zzr. My old man has a small machine shop with a booth set up for polishing/painting. We have 3m wheels on a buffer so that took all of 5 mins to scuff the parts and wipe with alcohol. Painting couple layers each wasn't bad. I wanted to bake them because this was in november in ny and i could ride to heat em up haha.

Im glade yours are holding up hopefully min will do them same. Definitely improved the look of the z.

Agreed. I hate the copper/bronze color. So far the only time my paint has come off is due to accidents. Ha ha. I've since stopped pushing the limits though, so hopefully smooth sailing from here. And no, I didn't go street fighter because I crashed. I rebuilt all my damaged fairings and was about to reinstall them when I came across custom fighters.com and got inspired to do something different. I sold the firings and headlight to fund the transformation. I spent more to do this than I would have to make it look like a stock ZZR again. Never looked back.

Just picked up this little girl today. Traded a 1986 Lincoln Town Car for her. Not the nicest/cleanest bike, but she'll get some TLC that none of the previous owners cared to give.
