To anyone out there with the matte silver fury. Does anyone know if the red stripe on the rim is actually painted on or if it just a pin stripe sticker that can just be taken off with a heat gun?

I have yet to own my fury. My deposit is down but I won't be here till spring and the matte silver is the one that I have ordered. :)

Thanks for the info. Guess I am just going to have to live with that stripe unless I decide to get those rims painted :(.....still, I think the matte silver looks the most badass, perhaps that red will grow one me once I get the bike :)

There was someone on the forum selling their matte...

There was someone on the forum selling their matte silver with the regular wheels. You could see if the dealer would switch them out for you and then powder coat them any color you want.

Having hand painted pin stripes done on my car a couple of times i have learned that the paint that is used, can be removed with laquer thinner and a rag.

Its actually kinda cool to watch. These pin stripes hold on with washing, waxing and power buffing, but wipe right off with the thinner on a rag. I would try it on a tiny spot and see if it does rub off.

You can always have a pin striper go over the red with some black. Should cost much.

I know this is an old thread but I was just reading...

I had my bike in a trailer on the way back from Florida for spring break. Bike slid over...wratchet strap scratched my wheel. I was surprised to see this. The wheel was actually painted red first, then black. I know it seems kinda backwards, but that's how they did it for some reason. So "rubbing" the pin stripe off is not an option.

I went to PepBoys and got a roll of black pin-stripe. It's just five bucks and one roll will do both sides of both wheels. It won't fit the curve of the wheel perfectly unless you really try, but no one is gonna look that close to notice it. It took me half an hour to complete it and I love it.

Good part about this is if you don't like it....just take it off! I loved the red before and just wanted to try this and I'm glad I did. No one is ever going to see those red stripes again :D

Hope this helps.

And one more thing...canoesmasher, did you paint your side covers with the ColorRite paint that is made for the bike, or did you just go to Auto-Zone and try to get a match? If you did, what make and color did you get? I'm painting mine next week since I'll be down for surgery and won't be able to ride :mad:

I seen DaRes Scuffed rear wheel when I done the T-mod on his Fury. I even scratched my head while looking at it, The wheel is painted red then painted black over the red. Like DaRe says the red (pin-stripe) is painted bass-ackwards.

actually it kinda makes sense from a manufacturing standpoint. red over black will darken the red... black over red is still black.

Now that you mention this, I recall seeing red like rock marks on my rims... I wondered if the rim was painted red before the black. I guess that explains it :D

Ha, wow, I was surprised to see this thread come back to life.

I am not getting rid of my red stripe, it has actually grown on my quite and bit and I do like it :)

daRe, as far as my side covers go, I got my paint match from ColorRite, it was absolutely perfect, I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I got the same paint match for the frame when I painted my front forks and it was perfect as well. When I get home next I am going to paint the rear shaft hub and arm black just to clean up the rest of the bike, after seeing how great it worked on my front forks.
