    Stumbling at part throttle/low rpms

    Powder Coating Question

    In a few weeks, I'll be black powder coating my Thruxton rims and hubs. I was wondering if the center of the brake rotors can be powder coated (the gray colored center of the rotor in the attached pic)? Would the high heat of the oven damage the integrity of the rotor?
