Has anyone used Easy Off oven cleaner to remove an anodized coating?

I have a 2004 CRF80 (wifes) and it normally has silver/gray hubs. Well the bike has an older XR80 front wheel with the black hub.

Instead of buying a new wheel or messing around with relacing a new hub, I wondered how hard it would be to remove the black coating.

I don't think the black coating on those is anodize.

But to answer your question, I have used oven cleaner to remove anodize and it is a pain in the butt to get it all off. It fades it a ton, but to get it stripped completely takes a while. Soaking the part in a mixture of lye and water for a couple minutes works much better.

Thanks for the input! If it is not anodizing, I wonder what type of coating it is. Is it more like a powdercoating?
