    On motorcycle headers, pistons, valves, combustion chamber etc...

    Something like Swain tech, HPC, or Jet-hot (not a do-it yourself can of ceramic high temp paint).

    Wondering what the results were, if you still had enough clearance (around pistons), how it changed the characteristics of your motor (temps, power, efficiency).

    TIA
