you are absolutely going to HATE having a polished swingarm.....I would never have another one. You have to clean it everytime you go riding. Polished stuff sucks.....chrome rims maybe cuz thats easy.....the frame isnt to incredibly bad but looks off if you dont do the swingarm. Nice for show bikes, to much of a pain in the ass for everyday rider

Nice. It looks great. My 2001 ZX6R had polished everything, and to be honest with you, if I wanted to bling again I would most definitely chrome and not polish. It's so hard to maintain a great shine.

yea. i wanna chrome it all rather then polish. but its so much easier on the wallet to grab a few peices of sandpapaer and some time, and go to town.. im takn it to a custom shop this week to throw around some prices. they chrome, but of coarse the parts gotta get shipped out.. if nething ill do that over the winter... ill see.... as for getting in the cracks it sucked. i took them off and took the pegs off too and just sat there and sanded in all the cracks. upon really close inspection there not perfect, but hey, thats our secret :) each one took like 3 hours still. getting the powder coat off even with stripper still was the chore. 220 grit 320 grit 400 wet 800/1000/1500/2000 wet. hand polish. then buff wheel with rouge, then hand again
