    Hi,

    I have scratched my rear wheel fitting a tyre, I know the wheela are powder coated and wondered f anyone has done the same but tried to use touchup paint to cover the scratch?

    I have been directed to Halfords to look for a "close match".
    My bike is the 675 masterclass graphite bodywork, wheel colour is ............???
    if I can't get it covered anyone give me a ruff guide to the cost of repowdercoating the wheel(s)

    Thanks

  3. Can't help you with the paint colour but when I enquired about an R6 (before I got the D675) I asked the dealer about chaning the wheel colour and they said that it would be £250 for both wheels to be done.

    hi snuffy675, all i can suggest is enquiring round 4 a place that just sprays (car) wheels.
    ive got to hav all 4 of my car wheels done and they can do all them for £120 including blasting, repairing, and powder-coating, so i dont see why each bike wheel cant b done for say £30.
    they spray quite a few wheels 2gether in the oven so it isnt as tho they hav to fire it up just 4u.
