As with all paint, it's all in the prep work.
If you want your engine to look that good you need to get it CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN.

And if you don't feel like scrubbing for hours and have a bit of money. Vapor blasting is amazing.

The stock Honda motor color is called Cloud Silver. It's available on line and oddly enough at Honda Equipment Dealers (the lawn mower and boat guys)! http://www.boats.net/parts/detail/honda/H-08707-NH35M.html  Honda also has a Cloud Silver Metallic that was used as a car color. A friend of mine used it on his Comstar wheels and they really look good.

I used a much cheaper and near matching Rustoleum color on my Wife' CT90 hubs. I don't remember the paint code and don't have the can anymore.

i think i've got the cleaning part taken care of. I've been scrubbing on this engine for weeks trying to get a uniform look. Thanks for all the input. I'm going to buy some high heat paint tonight and get started.

For the cases, you're OK with regular enamel. They don't get hot enough to need high temp. Head and jugs should be high temp though.

Thanks. I have half a bike now. I made a electronics tray that will even hold the battery. But I'm concerned about clearance with the back tire. How much should be there?

If you pull the springs off of the shocks, they should fully compress and rest on the bushings. That's how much room you'll want.

You don't have enough I wouldn't think based on the photos.  Bottom line, the suspension needs to bottom-out before your tire hits the tray.  How many inches of clearance do you have now?  How long are the shocks bolt to bolt?
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."
