I just picked up my 848 Nicky Hayden edition tuesday and wanted some opinions. I am thinking about having the wheels powder coated maybe white or a dark blue like the blue thats on the bike. I am just afraid of killing the resale of the bike. Let me know what you think.

Powdercoat a set of used wheels and take the stock ones off until you decide to sell the bike.

+1. That's the correct answer.
++1

I keep all of the OEM parts that come off the bike and box them up.

If you go to sell, then you put all of the OEM parts back on and sell it for just about the same as if you left the custom stuff on. Then you sell the custom parts off. You will come out much better off then trying to sell the OEM parts or trying to recover the costs of the mods on resale of the bike.

Are the wheels even a special edition color? They look black like the rest of the 848's. If you are weary, just buy an extra set and powdercoat those.
