300 miles on the new Fury, and my front tire picks up a screw!!
unscrewed it, sure enough- hissing at me. Screwed back in- Screw it! Lets ride!
Just Kidding, I think thats a harley slogan...
Anywayz, I think I might be recieving some "divine guidance" ....like now is the time to get the front wheel polished and chromed!
Anybody got and good reasons why I shouldn't do it?
Thanks, FF

Yeaahh


Chrome it up brother!
I will be doing it over the winter - I can't be without my ride for 3 weeks but if you can ....... do it up!
By the way, I was quoted @ $700 for front n rear and all labor - New York.

My view on customizing is that it is a expression of your own style and it seems like reading all the posts that many are showing their style with the mods to the stock Fury...I'm excited to see the mods over the next couple of years cuz it's gonna be super cool.
My bike gets a new exhaust, and I'm going to Black anodize the wheels and any other parts that I find at the time...The time will have to be this winter though- riding season up here is far too short to be working on bigger more timely mods when I can be riding.
Good Luck and have fun expressing your Style.
Regards

I hope you're not thinking of chroming just the front!

I personally would not chrome the stock wheels. There are going to be some aftermarket wheels for this bike that can be ordered chrome, and give the bike a whole new look.

If you are just thinking of chroming the front and not the back, I would say "Have you lost your mind?" Keep them the same no matter what you do. Don't you think it is funny / rediculous looking to see a car riding down the road with different type wheels on it? Chroming the front and not the back would give you the same look.

I would probably wait for a wider aftermarket rim for this bike. Especially for a wider tire such as a 240 everyones talking about. I got quoted $1200 for front and rear chrome, polished rotors and chromed drive shaft hub. I could throw in the calipers for about $100 more. This included all labor, shipping, mounting and bearings.

I think the stock wheels will look killer chromed and have already "requested" that the hubby have mine chromed for Christmas. There may be some really nice chrome wheels come out for this bike, but the price is always out of my range. Lucky for me we have a great local chrome shop that does excellent work.

The local honda shop here in Natchez, MS had the rims chromed on one of the deep red bikes as a demo.. they just came back from the shop and I went by there yesterday to get a look... I couldn't even tell it was the stock rim!!! It makes a hellova difference in the already great look of the bike.. Trust me dude, its hot!! worth every nickel!! Go for it!!

Man. This makes me happy that I purchased the tire and wheel insurance. Especially due to the potholes we have up here.

I've seen chromed wheels on ebay for the Fury. I'm going to wait and get wire spoked wheels in chrome.

Combined with a springer front end, will be just the old-school look I'm after.

Completely Stock

Am I the only person who never customizes a bike?

I've had many motorcycles, every size and type since I was about 16 (really old now).

One I had for 16 hours, but never kept one more than two years. Never wrecked any, just got bored with them I suppose.

I make sure maintenance is a priority in every respect but have never spent a penny making any changes. I just love to ride them.

I have no issue with what people do with their bikes but was wondering if any of you fine people just leave your Fury in a stock condition and just enjoy riding it?

While I'm running at the mouth, I would like to add how much I enjoy this forum. You folks are just awesome, real ladies and gentlemen and such great information from so many sources available and all seem so supportive of each other answering questions in a sensible way regardless of how obvious or obscure the answer to the question might be. Thanks!!!

Usually when I buy a bike or car, I keep them for a long time. I like customizing them and making them different from those that just rolled off the showroom floor. I spend many evenings out in the garage working on them. It's all about personal preference.
