I decided to paint my rims last week. Got a little bored & this is the outcome.
Yes powdercoat is an option but not one I'm willing to pay for at the moment. More important things are on the agenda.
After prep, primer & a few coats. Someone hipped me onto the card trick which worked a lot easier than masking tape.
I started on a Sunday so I didn't have access to dismount the tires.
Close up. Yes this was all done with a rattle can in my backyard.
Done & reflective stripes installed
The paint. I started with adhesion promoter, etching primer, paint then clearcoat.
With daylight hours running short I took them off late Sunday & worked a few hours after work every day til Thursday.
Rode to work Friday.
A couple pics to show how close the match is. I painted the passenger pegs also.
Before I adjusted the chain for those who notice the "flaw" in this pic
Hi everybody. I am new to this site and I saw this thread so I figured I would upload a pic of my bike. Its and 06 zzr 600. I have done a lot of work on it including but now limited to:
-Full fairings kit from fastfairings.com
-Corbin front seat
-Two Brothers m2 black series (on its way)
-Brand new headlight assembly (previous owner laid it down, hence this and the plastics kit)
-Front master cylinder
-Coolant reserve tank
-new turn signals
Much more to come. Enjoy the pictures.
Couldn't get the pics to load in my post so here is a link to my albums.
I have a 2001 ZX-6R that already had Blue wheels, but at this point they need to be touched up and I may end up painting them just like you did. Can you give a bit more details regarding the exact products you used to clean them up and prepare them for paint, and exactly what clear coat you used as well? Nice work.
Rocket, What type of set up do you have on your front stand. I have a front stand and the current brackets do not support the front forks in a secure manner.
It is hard to see from the pictures in the beginning of this thread.
I am considering welding up some new brackets but I wanted to see what you had set up first.
