Can you paint radiators?

I want to get the paint off my painted radiators.
Ive been told that unpainted radiators dissapate heat better than painted ones.
My yz400 has a slight overheating problem in tight trails. Im trying to do everything I can do to keep it cool.
My only problem is, as far as I can tell, There is no way to safely strip the paint off mine without damaging them.

I've only had my bike overheat on me one time. It was on 95 degree hot humid Missouri day when I got stuck at the top of hill in the tight woods and was trying to turn it around.

It would probably be easier to just have take both in to be cleaned and stripped at a decent rad shop.

You may want to try some of the preformance shops / racing shops.

And most of the "auto" race shops in my area tend to taylor there busines around the "circle jerk" croud. Ya know the roundy round racers.
But it wouldn't hurt to try a few of them. They may have a lead.
I havent tried any of the radiator shops listed in the back on the mx mags yet. Maybe that should be my next step.
