  • another one!

    hey all. new to the scene, have my PDA next week so hopefully out on the road soon. Just got a cbr250r nothing too flash but it makes me happy I wanted to also get my wheels powder coated but I have neither the tools nor the knowledge to remove wheels from bike and it seems like all the powder coating places require the wheels stripped etc. yourself, anyone know a place that will do it all for you?

    Anyway here it is, hope to see many of you on the road this riding season

    most bikes its actually very straight forward to remove yourself.

    usually just one bolt going through the hub. just make a note of what order any spacer rings or how the speedo drive sits in the hub and you should be sweet.

      If you do remove them yourself, make sure you slide something in between the brake pads so they do not close up while the wheels are off.

        The first mod you should do is get a really loud exhaust pipe.

            Welcome!

            Opinions are like arseholes I know, but the best money spent on a 250 is to ride the thing.

            I believe you are referring also to removing the tyre from the wheel? I don't know of anywhere that will remove the tyre, dip, and then refit. There are a couple of places that will plastidip the wheel with the tyre still on, maybe an option if you are adamant that you need the colour changed.
            We are small and exposed, and probably moving too fast for our own good, but that's no reason not to enjoy every minute of the ride.

              yeh I might just plastidip it myself if I'm ever bothered. It's not a big fuss to me, will probably keep it the way it is, don't have time to do all that oh well

                What colour? If you want them white be prepared to clean them every five minutes.

                  Welcome.
                  Best I can do to describe the issue is this.
                  Normally it goes BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, shift, BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

                  But now it's a bit more like this
                  BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-R-R-r-r-r-r-r-, shift

                    Alrighty! Welcome to psb.

                    Id leave the wheels if they are ok, and just ride the bike. Save the cash for the big bike in 12 months time. But you could also just try a wreckers, and see if they have any good wheels pre coated... Two wheel wreckers in Osborne Park or motorcycle wreckers in Kenwick, they'd probably have some decent wheels for ya...

                              I like to paint my wheels black - matches the colour of the chain grease when it flicks off. Coloured rims end up being a pain to clean all the time.
