The previous owner had dipped them black before I bought the bike (so at least 15 months or more). If it wasn't for the fact the dip got tore up when the plate bracket broke there was no need to re do them. I will say I'm glad it had been dipped, think it was the only reason the wheel didn't get all dinged up. If you look close you can see the nick's on the edge of the wheel.Nice looks clean. Have you dipped the wheels before? How long do they normally last before they need to be touched up?
Now the bad. Color matched the rear, got the wheel on, was lowering the bike and watched in horror as she fell over.
Still kicking my self because I forgot I still had my ramp under the the back wheel, just a little 1.5" block so I can get the jack under the frame. Fortunately only major damage was a busted foot peg, 2 little dents on the tank where the right side switch housings hit and a bent brake pedal. The mirror got over torqued stripping some of the thread but I think I can fix it. Air cleaner cover got cracked, may mod it like Kbuskill?? did unless I can find one cheap until I can flash the ecu and install a new intake.
