Could I do a straight swap of spoke wheels on my c800, to cast wheels of a c800c ? I like the look, and I can use tyre sealant then if I have a puncture. Maybe it wouldn't be cost effective though.

From what I have read it's a straight swap, however in the UK I think the C5OC would be as rare as rockin' horse shit!

Hmm .. It's just that the spokes are starting to look a little tired [no pun intended] and I thought I could incorporate a straight swap as the answer.
We are talking the thick end of a grand though, so it's not cost effective, may as well put the bike in for something else, with cast wheels. I have read up on painting spokes, and it's a premier league nightmare,
Perhaps the m800 wheels will fit?
The only answer seems to be to get the spokes powder coated. This would cost what? .... £100 a wheel? Just playing around with ideas at the moment, I may do this when the dreaded winter arrives.

Even the most anal cleaner Will have a hard time keeping the spokes shiny, that's one bit I am happy to ignor

Right, it seems that powder coating is a bad idea for spokes, and I think the m800's wheels may be smaller. Stainless spokes?

The cast 'spoke' wheel is something I could really warm up to. A direct steal from Harley yes, but what the hell, they look too cool! I'll be looking in to this to see if its viable. If so, Michael's C50T will be wearing them as soon as I can find a pair.

I think Suzuki may supply wheels to the States but not Canada.
That's how it was a while ago, from what I have read, but it may
have changed now. You will have to drive over the border.
