Cool

I own a 2000 9R.Purple mica.I think the
black wheels really look crappy on this
bike.Does anyone know where i can find some
pics of this bike with aftermarket wheels.
I have been looking at PM and Dymag but would
like to see how they look on the bike before
i shell out that much dough!

Did you get to see a bike with the PM wheels on it? My ZX-7 has them, if you would like me to e-mail you a pic!

How much of a pain in the arse are those wheels to keep looking like that? I bet its hell trying to polish the front wheel around the hub area. I would consider these wheels but not to thrilled with the upkeep. BTW, nice ride there GreenNinja.

It can be a realai in the butt to keep them looking good. I use MASS polish on them, easier than anything else. Makes me wonder about polishing the frame if the wheels are that hard!

Well, the PMs come polished but the frame is a laborious trip to hell and back to polish.

But as far as upkeep, the frame is easy and the wheels, although not terribly hard to keep shiny, are more difficult than the frame.

For the PM wheels, if you have a bike stand, upkeep is pretty easy for the "wheel" part, the "spoke" areas are more of a pain, as the chain is easy to brush up against while polishing and the rag can get grease on it, (BAD!!)

The front is not so hard if you have a front stand, just take a bit of alum. polish and wipe it shiny, and rotate wheel a bit and do it again. Doesnt really take too much time.

Without stands it is a bit of a hassle.

GreenNinja's bike looks even better in person. Too bad the rider is so damn ugly.
