What? What have they used to coat the wheels? Powdercoat doesn't wipe off like that. Hell even paint shouldn't come off with wax. What the hell are they coated with?So this morning I decide I am going to wax my beautiful new blurple wheels and was not happy when I saw this .....
yeah, it's a bit worrisome, contact yamaha and see what they say. it's possible that the powder coating was not cured properly. if so, they should replace the wheel under warranty.I used a Mother's clay bar kit to make sure the surface was completely clean before waxing, this is were I saw a bit of blue and knew that wasn't good. I continued treatment and waxed it with my favorite wax (zymol) and that's when I took the picture. The wheels did not discolor or anything like that, but a little bit of residue on clay bar and my waxing cloth is a little concerning.
Ya I am going to get ahold of them tomorrow.yeah, it's a bit worrisome, contact yamaha and see what they say. it's possible that the powder coating was not cured properly. if so, they should replace the wheel under warranty.
personally, honda pro spray cleaner and polish is all i've ever used and it works great.
Zymol is amazing !! Changed the way the tank looked ! I didn't like the liquid graphite at first( blue wheels where my trigger ) but after a good wax Job it looks alot better!Zymol is the best, that wouldn't/shouldn't have caused that. This does look like the powdercoat didn't cure properly.
This is not good.
