Then spray them, and let them dry well before getting them near dirt or oil.
Engine parts get pretty warm on a bike, so need to use the proper paint or it will flake off.
I used Harley krinkle paint on my Heritage not happy $38 per 16 oz spray bomb,as 71BB427 said i have used the GE electric motor paint for years in lifter vakkey and inside block above crank to help oil drainback IT works and stays on even with heat and abuse of dirt track racind
