Default Engine paint

I'm getting ready to pull the motor on my '04 XL 883C. It's a stock gray color, and I want to paint it flat black. My questions are on a good paint and how to prep. The stock paint is flat and pretty clean, but I'll probably hose it down with some kind of solvent to make sure there's no oil, grease, etc. Any suggestions for a good kind of paint; paint prep, etc.?
Thanks,
Sam
