That looks great! I'm interested as well but I would probably have it done this winter due to I would rather ride now. How long did that take?

IMPORTANT: When you have rotors polished you will have only about 20 percent braking-stopping power until the pads re-seat. So be careful. Those first STOP signs can be hairy!

polishing

to polish the front wheel, brake caliper brackets and rotors was 450.00 . if you can see the weight lip and all casting marks have been smoothed out lee did a first class job on these for me .

That looks really good david. So since you didnt include the price for the rear, I take it you are installing a Sumo-X kit?

Looks good! I think he just forgot to say the rear wheel when he mentioned the price and listed all the stuff they did for 450, at least i hope so lol, if that is the case then that is definitely worth it, would be interested in hearing how long it took to get all of that done?

It wouldnt matter if you put it on the outer part of the rotor but it would be fine in the centers. The friction fron the brake pads are going to cause scratches in the finish, there is no way to stop it. You will lose most of your braking ability because the pads will have a hard time gripping on the smooth surface.

polishing

yes I am doing the sumo-x fat tire kit . the reason i included the sumo wheel in the pictures was to show that our front wheels will polish out and shine like aftermarket wheels. Lee at Mirror Image had my parts about three weeks but he did have a machine go down for several day durring that time.
