More on lead times below.

If an exchange is authorized, it will be subject to availability and lead times of the new product requested.

The information below is to explain our estimated times and our ability and restrictions on giving exact
order updates after the order is placed.
Each color option has an estimated lead time based on the color and wheel body part number used for the motorcycle model.

If the color is listed as 3-5 business days, the wheel bodies are likely in stock.
The 3-5 day lead time is for order build scheduling, assembly, inspection, cleaning and packaging.
Some custom options or certain applications require additional processing time.

If lead time is listed longer than 3-5 business days, it is likely that the wheel set is in color process #5 - #7 as listed below
The time frame may be shorter of longer based on where in process the wheel set is.
Core Moto Apex-6 wheels are manufactured in house in Titusville FL USA. We control the physical manufacturing process and can
give customers details about all in house production processes with good accuracy.

Note: Below we refer to the Anodizer, as this is the method most of our wheels are color coated.
The same information may apply to powdercoated or painted wheels.
Color Coating is not done in house. Core Moto ships batches of wheels to California for Anodizing about every 10
business days. Wheels are shipped in loads to the anodizing facility by truck on 5 business day transit time routes.

The anodizing facility generally takes 10-14 business days to process a full load and prep the shipment for return. Then the
load is shipped back to FL for unpacking, inspection, assembly, cleaning and shipping. In general, this entire process takes
4-6 weeks on average.
These exact lead times are not always firm. Freight shipments can get delayed. Anodizing processing can be delayed.
Equipment can break down or specific dyes can be on back order.

While the anodizer is accommodating, they do not provide us with time estimates per individual load.

There is an average time that we calculate into our current lead time.
The posted lead time is adjusted based on stock status and previous load lead times.
Q: Why aren't all wheels always in stock pre anodized ready to go?
A: As our production capacity increases, The demand for Core Moto wheels seems to increase with it. Our goal is to have
all wheels in stock pre anodized in our standard colors at all times, however that is not always possible.

We make this product in the USA, in house with quality and detail above quantity.
Our milling process for our wheel bodies delivers much more detail in the features of the product than that of any of our
competitors, but this also adds a lot of time to the machining process. To speed up or increase production units significantly,
many of the features and details that make our wheel stand apart from high production products would need to be eliminated.
We prefer to keep our quality standards and detail high.

While we wish we could provide exact updates through the entire process, once the product leaves our facility, we can only
tell the customer what stage it is in until we are informed that anodizing is complete.
