Ok, so should I just buy the chrome wheels from yamaha? I met the people that make them for yamaha when I went to street vibrations in Reno this year. They said that I could NOT get them directly from them, I had to go through yamaha. Verrrry expensive but I want the look.

If you're going to drop some coin on wheels.... have you looked at RC Component?

Agreed!!!  I could be off, but from what I've calculated the RC wheels will run me about $4000 after all is said and done.  They are goegeous though.

This is one of the cases where I agree with Bill wrapping it into the whole loan thing right up front.  If I eve buy a new Raider and the finance company will allow it, I'm getting the RC wheels.

I just love the Eclipse Savage.
Home equity loan that way you can write it off also.

I also agree. Who ever does PE's chrome does damn good work but Matt can be a pita to deal with if something goes wrong.

Please elaborate.
I was sent warped rotors but did not realize it until I rode the bike. He would not pay for labor or my shipping and would not take blame until they were back in his possession and he had to put them on one of his bikes to try them out before he would send me a new set. My bike was down for quite a while just waitng for him to put them on one of his bikes. Luckily my bike was in the shop for others mods at the same time. And I'm also one of the unlucky customers whose rear wheel weld is pretty obvious. But on a good note the chrome still looks wet after 2 riding seasons.
I had a topic here about bearing failure...that was done by PE...I will say it all turned out ok but it did take a bit of back and forth with Matt b4 it all got settled...that said...I still like the rims I got from him.

I know this thread is about chrome wheels.  Didn't see anyone mention Kosman Specialties, I know Kosman does Warrior wheels, not sure about Raiders.
