    • Lowers has a clear coat on them. Just scuff it up and paint.

    • do i have to remove the front wheel?

    • It would make it easier to paint.

    • You don't have to.

    • okay, if i decide to remove the wheel, how do i go about doing so?

    • This is what im using. Used it on my bars

    • Remove the break caliper, Unhook the speedo cable, Loosen the clamp bolt on the bottom of right fork (2 nuts). Then remove the axle (17mm if I remember right.)

    • okay, i'l try it with the wheel on lol have the fender unhooked rightnow so im going to see if i can get my sponge brush in there. not sure if im going to paint the wheel though, because if i do it to the front ill want to do it to the rear and it has alot of smaller spaces

    • It'd be much easier with everything removed, even removing the tires from the rim.

    • I've found out the hard way. Short cuts are bad. You will end up spending more time than if u just take off

      The wheel.
