Hello from Wisconsin. I recently purchased a dream bike of mine, a 2001 RC51. I love the look and history of the bike, I HATE my wheels. I joined this forum in the hopes of learning more about the bike and finding a new set of wheels for it. I HATE the blue wheels.

Thanks for the forum and the space.

Keith

I know. That's why I want a new set of wheels. According to my mechanic, it would be a lot of work to have my wheels powdercoated, like my wheel bearings would have to be replaced.

Welcome, Keith.

Nice bike. But I have to agree with you, what were they thinking with those blue wheels? I hope you got some money off because of those.

But seriously, it's an easy fix.

Enjoy the new ride!

If you take your bearings out before powdercoating, no problems.
I had my wheels and cushdrive done. I removed valve stems, tires, seals and bearings in the rims and cushdrive.
I went with a high-end powdercoater, paid around $500. But I got quotes as low as $350 for the set.
