Powder coating gsxr wheels

Does anyone know a source to get gsxr wheels powder coated? Went to a shop in queens n they quoted me 500 for wheels and 500 for the front nose air intake.. tiny lil piece for 500 and if I take it off n take it to them then 300.. I was hoping to get everything done for 500. Any decent place around NYC area? Click image for larger version

I'm not sure I've heard of powder coating something that's not made of metal (the fairing piece). I sure wouldn't want to put it in an oven and see what happens. Powder coat the wheels but just take the fairing piece off and paint it...

If I were you I'd shop around a little that's seems stupid high$$ I just got my wheels powder coated for $75 each custom color granted I did do the sandblasting my self, and he did tell me that there's a new process out there to powder coat plastic but he couldn't do it yet

200.00 per wheel is on the high end basically.

Is that in ny?? This shop has fkin panigalis n all sorts of custom designed bikes hanging off the walls so I guess they have the hype to ask for that much.. but even then 300 dollars to paint the 2011 gsxr 600 air intake nose cowl.... thatís if I take it out and bring it to them.. of all the plastics that piece has one of the smallet surface areas.
Btw the shop website, http://charlieschopshopny.com/services/ their work is good quality but still 1000 dollars for wheels and a small plastic is too much for me

I use Action Powedercoat in Farmingdale, Long Island, they charge $125 a wheel for one color one coat of clear. They do nice work I had both of my bikes done there, my friend just did his wheels there too.

99% of places will want the wheels off the bike at minimum. If you have the means to get the bearings out that will save you money as well. the more labor you do, the less you will have to pay for. Always cheaper that way

Have you considered using caliper paint and doing it yourself? It still looks good and doesn't cost much! Lasted on my racebike for years which has much more frequent tire changes.

Wheels and bearings need to be removed before you drop them off. Action doesn't do anything like that...it makes the price of doing this considerably more if you have to pay someone to do it but it's worth it for sure bc then you'll have colored rims.

What color are you thinking??

Also mask off the bearing seat areas after the bearings are removed, and tell them NOT to powder coat the bearing surfaces. Otherwise, you will be grinding off powder coat to be able to put the bearings on. This also goes for threaded bolt holes.

I gotta say, normally I would say "blech" to that color, but it actually looks really nice on there. Good job. Hope you didn't have to pay through the nose.
