Are your stock KRX 1000 wheel center caps vanishing after every ride? Want something better than the chintzy factory clip on center cap without breaking the bank? How about being cheaper than those chintzy factory ones?
After quite a few revisions and redesigns, we are now offering our iteration of KRX wheel center caps. Ours are 3D printed from PLA+ which holds up very well to UV, moisture and temperature over conventional PLA, without the printing hazards of printing ABS(which is very prone to UV fade, layer separation and warping). They're made as thick as possible and have a fully radiused interior to minimize stress risers, while still clearing the axle nut and washer. The part's structure is also solid throughout the mounting location for superior strength. They are held into the wheel's center bore via an external snap ring that applies a preload to the center cap, snugly sandwiching the wheel inner and outer surfaces.
Installation is a breeze, remove wheel from machine, remove factory wheel cap(if they're even there), slide the new wheel center cap in, install snap ring on the backside until it "clicks" into position and reinstall wheel onto the machine.
Colors offered are Blue, Red, Black and Green. The Green isn't quite as bright as the factory lime green, so if you're after an exact color match, we would recommend going with the Green and painting them with Kawasaki 777 Lime Green paint. While some will see painting them as not ideal, however there simply isn't an exact match of the lime green filament available. We offer the green simply because will help hide scrapes and scratches by painting over a similar color base material(versus painting over black, blue, red, etc. base material).
We will also have a silver available shortly, we want to get the filament in and do some test prints to verify the material quality before offering. The blue, black, red and green filaments we use have performed great for all the other functioning parts and tools we've printed and use extensively(including destructive testing).
Keep in mind, these are a plastic and while they are rather thick and very tough, they will not play nice with chemicals and solvents. We advise not spraying them with acetone, brake clean, aggressive degreasers and other cleaners or solvents, as they will break down the plastic and cause failure, thus voiding the warranty.
These are covered under a 60 day warranty against part failure. NOT VALID IF THEY ARE INTRODUCED TO ANY CHEMICALS, SOLVENTS OR DAMAGED FROM INSTALL. ONLY USE PROPER SNAP RING PIERS TO INSTALL THE SNAP RINGS.
