Kineo wheels damaged when changing tires

Hi,
this is a questions relevant above all for all the Dragster RR owners out there
did you have any issue with your spoked Kineo wheels in occasion of a tire change? did you or the shop damage the wheel?
is the paint job really that weak on those rims? and specifically the white ones?
Cheers

I'm about to find out, I just spent over $1000 on a no-mar "classic" tire changer and balancer..the whole kit..I prefer to change my own tires, if it gets messed up..it's on me!..I will be doing tires for other people too...

If your phone isn't ringing..it's probably me!...

Yup. Had to get a new tire put on in a short amount of time. Went to a shop and they pretty much pulled all the paint off the lip. Super pissed but it was my fault for going there in the first place.

I'll be powder coating the wheel and having a place in LA lace it up soon.

I had the tires changed at an official MV garage to make full use of their experience and avoid any kind of damage of the rims. unfortunately it did not work out and once I got the bike back I noticed damages were done. See pictures below. It looks like the mechanic levered on the rims itself without using protections or on the 'machine shoe' (not sure about the technical word) instead. About 5-6 marks on both side, for both wheels.

The MV garage is blaming (at least partially) the extremely poor quality of the Kineo paint job, being very fragile.

The MV shop decided to take responsibility: they suggested to dismantle the tires and send the rims to be 'repaired' by a specialized rims repair shop. In between I drove 900 km (long weekend out).

Once they remove the tires they noticed they have been 'eating up' more paint and caused more serious flaking. See pictures. Those wheels are supposed to be a premium product. I am gutted.

Did anyone else have issue with the Kieno spoked wheels? aside the known yellowing
Can anyone please confirm they changed their tires with no issues at all?
Any info is highly appreciated

Hi Atom, would you be able to send me some pictures and tell me little more?
Did they also improperly lever the tires out of the lips?

Hi Masterspin
Did you succeed doing it without damaging them?

@Lucaoscar: That damage is poor lubrication of the bead and rim as well as bad application of tire removal tools. It is solely on the shop that did the work.

That looks bad indeed. Good that the shop will repair.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Hi Silent,
as for the damages, that's my position too and actually the shop is taking its responsibility and paying/caring for the repair (that being and official MV dealer. Ironically i took the wheels there to avoid damages even if i own a manual tire machine myself for the track bike)

Never the less, the extra flaking happening in the internal side of the lips is worring me.
I have never saw something this bad before and I wonder if the paint work quality has something to do with it too.
