Can anyone that has had stock rims chromed tell me if the casting bumps (almost looks like a stamping or weight) on the front rim were taken off when you got them back ? Do you know exactly what they are and the purpose?

I have no casting bumps, or stamping on my wheels. They are smooth as glass. I know what you are referring to on the stock wheels they have Honda stamped into the rims and round stamps on the vertical spokes etc.
That was the first thing I notice as to how all those were gone.

I cannot tell you how they processed them prior to chroming but mine are smooth chrome.

I'm actually getting ready to take numerous parts of mine to be chromed as well and I not only am having the castings removed I'm also having the center wheel weight ridge removed. Should be nice and smooth when they are done.

I did not chrome the wheels but I did sand and paint them. I ground off all the casting marks. Then when finished remounted the same tires. I needed less than 1/2 the original weights when rebalancing them. It took a little time but not a problem.

That shows they are payin attention to the Fury. Most wouldn’t know what the stock wheels looked like.
Richard:
In all honesty, I haven't had a H-D dude say any thing bad about the bike so far.
I've sat last weekend outside a coffee shop with a few of them, and they all liked it.
The conversation always starts out, "Is that the new Fury"
but everyone I talked to all had to say that the Honda is definitely reliable.
The all seem to zero in on the S & S air filter right away.. lol

I haven’t had any bad experiences either. Our local HD dealer has a building that looks like a super mall. I am in there all the time and they know me pretty well. I was originally looking at the Rocker C, but couldn’t bring myself to it. Even with all the mods I had figured in, I still couldn’t beat the look of the fury, which is the look I wanted all along. When I mentioned to one of them that I was also looking at the fury, the geezer just started sayin “ohh no, Ive heard a lot of bad things about the Fury. There has been a lot of bad press lately” After that, I knew the Fury was for me. I have been back to the dealer since then, and even the sales manager came out to look at it and said it was a hot lookin bike.
