Anyone experienced taking off paint when polishing wheels??? Weird situation today with rear rim. Washed the bike, went with Chemical Guys oil and wax remover over it to clean chain oil debris before putting it for winter sleep, after that cleaned with carpro eraser to remove any oils before polish..... started to polish with hand and sonax light polish and on pad there is blue residue.... wtf
This guy Windy's channel is a wealth of information on everything motorcycle. He shows how he painted the rims on his MT 09 and his other bikes. Type in his channels search bar and I'm sure you will find what your looking for.

If they could, they would still use old school paints and powdercoats. Far cheaper, and dosent require near as expensive of equipment to apply it.
Unfortunately the EPA and other overseas gubbermint bureaus that regulate factory emissions dosent allow for it.
Instead of solvent based they use waterborne that is electrostatic bonded and baked or a plant ester based dry coat.
Lot better for the environment but way too thin and not very durable at all.
I don’t think it’s unfortunate. It just a paint lol
