Its very easy actually. Mine was already pretty badly scratched up due to its life as a stunt bike, so i just took off the fairings, tank, and any other pieces that i wanted to be sure to keep paint off of, then sanded it down (not to bare metal, just enough for the paint to stick) cleaned it, and then painted it with the same high temp gloss black i used on my exhaust. Didnt clear it or anything and it still shines like new.

Very nice job!! Yeah, I think the white wheels would look great, it's just a pain to keep them clean. The black wheels look good too.
