I had white wheels on my old 750 Gixxer...good luck keeping them clean, I love the look just hate the maintenance.

BTW I wound up painting them black.

I clean the bike after every ride so the up keep shouldn't be to bad. It's easier to keep it clean constantly than to try and clean it after a month of riding

Very nice looking. I agree with everyone else the up keep its the bad part. But if your going to clean them after every ride well chances are your going to have some good luck with them. But for a guy like me that only cleans my bike once a week well that won't work for me

The bike looks great, the white rims with the 04 really pops. I also clean my bike after every ride, it really does make it alot easier.
