Powdercoating R1150GS rims
Hi guys,

I have the tires from a 2001 R1150gs appart to get them powdercoated and relaced with new spokes.
As far as I can tell the rims are anodizes.
My question is whether you would get them beadblasted before coating or just a wash with solvent will do?

I believe oven cleaner will remove it.

Soda or bead blast. If you are taking them to a powdercoat shop to have them done, they will tell you what needs to be done.
Thay may do it over the annodizing.
I had a boat wakeboard tower that was powder coated black RE-powder coated in white right over the old issues after 6 years with chipping or peeling anywhere. Sold the boat last year and the new owner just emailed me a week ago saying he loved it and it was all still in great shape.
