I'm confused. Did you mean the C wheels are powdercoated?

OP. I think its just a matter of time on when u can get it. As least this is what my dealer told me that production time frame are til 2014.

I worked roughly the cost of turning my base model into comp package (or close to it),

Wheel painted $500
All carbon $2500 (for this price u can get full carbon right? So it should be way less than 2500)
Levers $500
Rearset $800
Stickers $200?
Total: 4500 exactly what dealer charge for comp pack....

And i still get to keep all original parts for sale or my own use in case i go down.

Hope my math works out good

Just did some looking around, just the bottom piece, which is a special carbon piece for the hp4, it's not the same as a HP lower fairing, the hp4's is a lot longer, well anyway it's over $2500 alone.

So there is close to $5k just in carbon on the comp hp4.

Don't know why but the competition rims don't look painted more like powder coated blue metallic there's a guy here in Houston that's going to do the rims on my hp4 std. For $65 a rim so I will get mine powder coated painted blue metallic
And on the carbon fiber belly pan I might just go with this

Just about every article ever written about this bike states that the comp pkg wheels are anodized forged aluminum.

It's a completely different process than paint or powder coating which add more weight to the parts than anodizing.
