to save a little money I just scratched off the film to the substance and it is pretty durable after that I have put several miles on it and it looks the same as the day I scratched it off it don't look bad either - the chrome I doctored up with chrome prisim tape but I would try for carbon fiber shade if reflection from sun lite is a problem , it takes a few minutes to scratch it all off but worth it
That looks sharp but the bolt pattern - on mine the bolts are rotated a fraction with having a bolt in the 12:00 position or straight up with wheel straight ahead - I would think the hide would peel off on these like the ones we already have ?

Ya I haven't figured out what the bolt pattern is. Any idea..... I measured about 1 1/4" apart and as you said 12:00 start position. Wondering how the quality is.... If I can find the right fit or even an adapter I would do it.
Seeing where these are produced I would bet in 6 months of use it would be the same thing all over again - the rim looks to be the same thing we already have other than color - mine turned out well , the tape sounds cheap but it has held up well & covered rusting chrome I have never regretted it -try one & see if you can live with it - just take horn button off cut out either carbon fiber or anything you desire to cover chrome - clean well & install looks like new , the tape stays in place I just did the face & trimmed with razor - the hub below wheel could be rotated that fraction if bolt pattern was same if you did decide to go with that one
Sometimes I have to take a SWAG at some things, cause I don't know it all by far. But these little machines are as simple as you can get as far as working on a vehicle. Main reason I chose to buy one. Fun as hell and ease of working on sense I do all my own work on the vehicles. I've stopped pulling engines and transmissions on cars for the fact that I'm getting to old to get up and down all day. Seams like gravity is stronger now days and is trying to suck you under the ground. One day I'm sure it will!! Here is a couple of pics of the my Kawasaki I tore down a few months back. Now this is what you call tough.
