Whats up fellow hawk 250 owners and future ones (what are you waiting for!). Today in the mail I got my new hawk 250 spoke skins I ordered from the hawk 250 shop, under the Spoke Skins category. I was excited to get started on these but first I had to take a quick nap to relax the mind haha. After the 2 hour nap, I was ready to get to work.
I would deff recommend doing these during the day when its sunny out and you can let the skins sit in the sun to warm up and loosen up. It was a pain to work with them in the cold. My poor fingers are still feeling it as I type this post. I also recommend cleaning the rim, it will make things a lot smoother as you will see in the video below. The front rim went a lot quicker compared to the back rim because it was cleaner.
In the video you will see me starting to clean the rear rim but the I got lazy and skipped it lol, but it gave me a headache of a time installing the rear ones. I’m sure if they sat in the sun a bit, it would have been easier.

Hawk 250 Pictures from Installing Spoke Covers
Some quick images from the install of the hawk 250 spoke skin cover protectors. This was a fun little project to do in the garage and it didn’t cost me a fortune. I really like the way it came out, I still need to tweak a little to make it a snug tight fit but we are almost there. Tomorrow I will finish this off.
