    Get it powder coated, works the best :) Used to do this to all my mx'rs back in my racing days.

    if ya painting the fairings on a road bike use normal automotive paints ....

    off road trail bikes do what minux said and powdercoat things as its a tougher coating :)

    Do you mean painting the plastics or the frame? You would struggle to powder coat the plastics, they would just melt!
