Ok so I have always had CBR600. I have been wanting a 1000cc for a long time now and honda liter bikes just werent calling my name. So I went and looked at the 2014 R1 matte grey and fell in love. I like they way it looks already, however, I am looking to add a little color to it. I was thinking red accents such as angel eyes, levers, and tank pad. Only concern is the gold rims (no plans on changing rims to much $$) any and all suggestions greatly appreciated.

paint would be the cheaper option... Powdercoat would be the best option but also the biggest hassle as you are without parts for a few days most likely... The powdercoat option will surely hold up better against the rocks and what not that's going to be hitting them :fact

OP, either swap someone for a set of OEM's in the color you want or wait until the 15's get delivered and pick up a set of mags for the low...if cost is a concern then get in touch with Justin at SBU for a set of RK Excel forged wheels for under $1700...you can sell your OEM wheels and end up with a net of $1400 or less into new wheels
