Thanks! Its plasti dip. I like the blacked out matte black look better than the white decals, but I wanted to keep the decals. So whenever I feel like going back, I'll just peel it off! Plus, it helps protects the fairings and panels when I decide to go bushwhacking, so far its holding up pretty well.

Looks bloody awesome! I was looking at going down this route with my adventure. What kind of money are we talking for that wheel and tyre set up? Are they much different to the Alpina wheels?

I had a guy locally who dips do it for me, sprayed it on with a paint gun. When I do it again, I will just use spray cans.

DipYourCar on youtube has a lot of good videos about the process and what not. Here is one more motorcycle specific:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8zGCMSWl6g

Near the 4 minute mark of the video, the paint can that he rests the fender on is the brand of dip that I have on my bike, Performix Rubber Dip.

A little advice If you do dip your fairings and panels, watch when you install your bolts. Once you get the bolts tight against the dip, if will catch and twist a bit if you put too much force. Its not a big deal on the fairings since they are recessed, but I twisted the dip around on the front fender a bit. No one would really notice unless they look real hard, but I know its there and it bothers my inner OCD...

Oh man I think I might go crazy with this stuff. Already thinking of the possibilities.

Use washers, that stops it tearing

This was the first day I had her, it was the perfect day!
Do you ride in Micheax State Park? I saw someone with a 990R there today headed north on 233.

Don't know how much they cost new. I bought mine used with Michelin Anakees 2 on them. The guy who sold them said they were assembled by Devon Rim Company. Might be worth to ask if they still do those wheels.
I was looking on Alpinas and almost bought them. Differences between Alpina and Caponord Wheels - I think they are the same size, both use KTM hubs. Alpina has painted spokes and Caponord stainless steel. Both are tubeless, but I like more Caponord solution - spokes on the side of the rim.
