I had a cermakrome shop turn my valve cover away because they said itís made of magnesium and could disintegrate when they bake it.

I've been ceramic coating CBX and DOHC 4 parts for years. The only parts that I'm aware of on these families of motors is, the early CBX alternator outer cover and the early CBX left motor cover (with the dipstick). Otherwise the material is mostly (not pure) aluminum.

The company that does this for me has done mine and probably hundreds of others. QC Coating in Shelby Township, Michigan.

Here's a CBX motor with the valve cover and other covers done in this process:

Ceramic or powder coating those valve covers is not an issue at all. They're cast aluminum, not magnesium - that shop needs to take closer look if they still don't believe you. I've powder coated dozens of these covers over the years and they all come out looking nicer than new. You'll be happy with the results.
