Someone on here painted his wheels white. Don't laugh, it actually looks pretty good! I'm not sure if it's paint or powder coat, though...

Ok, hold on...


Here ya go!

I really like it. yesterday I saw a yellow Vstrom with the wheels painted yellow. Looked really sharp.
This thread http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ead.php?t=5202 also has something similar done to the wheels and is going to be my winter mod inspiration.

emur,

That's rim tape not paint. Very easy and quick to apply, it's also reflective so you can get rid of those saucer reflectors by the front forks.

Dave,

I bought my tape at my local dealer because I like to support his business, but you can order it online as well. I've seen it on the Whitehorse Press website. It comes with a little applicator which keeps it nice and even looking on the rim.
