wheel coating?

at some point did kawasaki clear coat the aluminum wheels or did some knucklehead do it thinking it was a good idea?

mine look like die cast aluminum with a thin layer of road grunge that sort of glimmers in the sun about as much as an old dead leaf. So i compared them to everyone's cars around here... they MATCHED! That made me feel a lot better so i put off that soap and water gig until i got the rest of it up and running... and new tires... which i can't afford... what was the question? never mind, i remember now... knucklehead... right... IT WASN'T ME! REALLY! I SWEAR!!

well i got the 110/90 tire on the front, dunlop 404 and dam what a difference it makes. if you need a front tire it only makes sense to upgrade to the taller tire. handles so much better and corrects the speedo
