Dunno, personally, as I never considered painting as I thought powder coating was the way to go for hardwearing protection of aluminium alloy wheels.

Anyone?

Got Steph in SD Designs to paint the 996 and S1000rr wheels for me.
Happy with that.

Thanks to 748s for his pics and advice regarding the 996 wheels.
Also got the monoposto seat unit painted in the red/gold/white numberboard colour scheme. Got Liam off this site to trim the monoposto seat and S1000rr seat for me with a Luimoto alacantra/leather seat cover.

Went with gloss black wheels for the 996 and motorsport lupin blue for the S1000rr wheels.
Thanks again 748s.

Decided to get the CBR600rr wheels powdercoated.

Im not sure if I picked the right yellow?

Should I have gone for hi viz yellow?

Bodywork will be satin black all over with some yellow decals here and there.

Go with whatever you want, it's your bike.
Still can't believe you are spending so much on a bike that is going to be worth
an awful lot less pretty soon. Unless you are going to hang onto it until the pre-inj class is replaced by bikes of this era. Which will happen down the line. But is a long way off yet.
