    K1300S Wheel Paint Code

    Does anyone have the paint code for a K1300S HP forged wheel. I dinged mine up.
    the repair shop needs the paint code. Thanks

    I thought the forged wheels were anodized?

    This is from the parts fiche.
    FOR VEHICLES WITH SPECIAL MODEL (CODE: X393A) :

    NOT FOR VEHICLES WITH RDC (CODE: X530A)

    Color - Magnesium metallic matt, triple-coat paint finish.

    I think RDC is Tire Pressure Monitor

    WARNING: Thread derail ahead!

    So, BMW goes to the trouble and expense of outfitting the Motorsport Edition with forged wheels and then squanders the weight savings with 3 coats of paint? Criminal, I tell you.

    At 1.2 pounds lighter per wheel it doesn't sound like they squandered much.

    Well, if a forged anodised wheel weighs 2.5-3 pounds less than than the stock wheel then I'd say yes, they squandered an advantage they didn't need to squander. As well, considering that most of the weight savings of a forged wheel is typically in the rim of the wheel, the difference in rotating weight can be significant. No comment on the durability.

    About the same weight as a quart of water in my water jug.

    Unsprung weight of a wheel makes a difference in handling.
    Your jug of water doesn't change the handling of the bike.
    Good riders like Tim can benefit from lightweight wheels.

    Slow riders like me don't get any benefit.

    While you may not think you get any benefit, I'd venture a guess that you could certainly feel the difference. Further, removing unsprung weight makes life easier on the suspension and can result in improved ride quality. Its not just theoretical.

    How about the sprung weight in the saddle? 😜

    Well, ahem, that can certainly be a contributing factor.

    Not to hijack my thread, which was made more interesting by the unsprung weight comments, the wheel refinisher said the finish was paint, not anodizing. Max BMW parts department could find no paint codes for the wheel, so an attempt at color matching is in the offing. Please proceed with unsprung weight comments.
