no. try 400 degrees, where as while running... they get around 60 or 70 max is my guess.

anodizing is just electroplating, except its paint, not another metal

not after he puts those bearings thru the oven. Then they may hit 400 while riding if they don't pile up first:ride:

plus pulling out the bearing will only take 3.5 minutes or so. If you are going through all the trouble of powder coating change the bearings they don't last forever and they are cheap.

Yeah by the time you could send them off and get them anodized you could have a nice set of excels or dna.

rims, spokes, and, hubs around 500 a piece

powder coating he is charging me 75 bucks

if you want to powder coat your rims go for it. I did mine on my 07 crf and they are nice and have stood up very well. look in my garage and check them out.

no but i would replace them they are cheap. I replaced the bearings on my 07 and they were shot. your call! It would suck to pile up a bearing while landing.

Not really any of my beeswax but why don't you just go learn how to ride w/ the rims just the way they are and then when they are all dented and trashed you can replace them w/ any color you want?

no, you just tap them out from the back with a long flathead screwdriver and hammer, they should come out easy if theyre not seized and youre smart about it.

if youre not smart and cant do it with a screwdriver and hammer, you will need to buy a special bearing pulling tool, but its not necessary.

its best to replace the bearings, but sometimes cleaning them out and re greasing them also works, it all depends on what condition theyre in.
