I can only speak for myself, but I have never had any handling issues. I believe gavs90 had taken his off when he took his bike in for warranty work, but he put it back on after that.

Kdog, did you get the black powder coated rim?

Actually I ended up with a standard rim.. No black powder coat..

I am taking it in for the 600 mile service on Thursday. Hopefully have it put on after that. I will have to think about whether or not I would take it off before warranty work...

I think as long as the dealership is fine with putting the M109R rim on it you'll be fine with keeping it on. I received nothing but compliments from everyone at the dealership when I had mine put on...even from the service manager who did the work and told me several times it wouldn't fit.

It kinda depends when it gets here.. My dealership is not terribly close to where I live. I found someone close that can put it on. Unfortunately they only do tires..

I think I posted earlier that the dealership was already arguing with me that it couldnt be done...I am anxious to have it done and over with at this point..

yes i had the same everyone at the dealer told me that the bike looked great and would even show people wanting to buy a m90 but when i tried to get the bike fixed under warranty all of a sudden it was no we wont fix it because of all the mods from now on if i have a warranty issue everything will be taken off and sent to a different dealer and yes i still have the 240 on

I still have mine on. It handles very well, I haven't noticed any difference (personally). No compliant on my end.
