Yeah just sand and clean it off well, and spray a few coats and you will be good. I have always used Rustoleum, but I have heard of a lot of people liking Metalcast spray paint which is supposed to be a little better looking than normal spray paint

um i want to do some bolt heads, levers, clutch, possibly clutch cover, rear grab bar, front bumper, pegs, and the cover near the bottom of the exhaust pipe not sure what its called ha. Mainly metal parts possibly the battery cover which is the only plastic part. I hear you have to "heat treat" plastic components to remove the release agent in order to get a good bonding.

Make sure that whatever area you are painting that you clean it off super well. Nothing is more annoying then trying to paint something when all of the paint pools away in a speckle pattern.

ha yup i have done that before ! i think Duplicolor Metalcast seems to be the paint to use as it is also heat resistant. Like you said i think 80% of it is good preparation
