I was cleaning my rear wheel tonight and with a flashlight on the wheel I could see through the coating to the base metal. It's as if the powdercoating was not applied even close to thick enough. I am really kind of shocked and wondering if Suzuki cut any other corners........

Mate I don't know about the GSXS, but I've got the black powder coated wheels on my 2010 M109 and I've cleaned it to within an inch of its life over the years. Still looks as good today as when I bought it in 2010, no problems at all.

I figured they'd have applied the same coating/technique on the GSXS… Maybe I need to take a closer look?

Mine is fine on outside, but they were not that flash about the area of the hub openings and there is nil coverage inside the rear gub cavity.
