Anyone ever Powdercoat their Oil Pan?

Never had the oil pan off... Not sure if their are any weird orifices for samd to get into, or if its just a big pan... ??

Help?

Anyone have any pictures of the inside of the Superhawk oil pan?

Can a moderator please fix my ignorance in improperly spelling the title of the post?

Hmm... Those three cylindrical towers look troubling... Does it look like sand can get caught in there?

The first cylinder (to the oil filter) is a straight shot to the center of the oil filer, the second is held in by a C clip and can be removed and goes to the lip of the filter, the third looks like it meets up with the second...

And no, with proper cleaning there should be no sand traps in the oil pan

Powder coat? no I would not, it is an insulation. Unless your endstate is to keep heat in the oil powder coating is counter productive.
Anodize? sure.
Paint or PC? NO I would not.. unless you are in a highly corrosive riding environment or riding in cold temps were you WANT heat retention in the motor.

I painted my sump with good old ceramic brake caliper paint!

Been like it for years and no probs thus far.

I only did it for looks!

Black of course, kinda ties in the black swinger and front forks!

Comes with a lot of things from the factory we change for the better.
Paint is an insulator, powder coat more so.

If the user don't care about retaining heat in the motor, leave it painted, or add even more insulation to it.
If your looking for ways to shed heat consider a natural finish, anodized finish or there are some high tech coatings that will aid in heat transfer to air.

the coating could help insulate it from the hot exhaust pipe right next to it.

LOL... This thread is funny...

But, it did give me something to think about.

Maybe I could run some "Oil-Wetter" to aid in oil cooling....
