first go to a store that sells buffing wheels that fit on a bench grinder. also you will need two different roughs, it is a compound that actually cuts and polished the metal. i used a light abrasive rough and finished up with a jewlers rough, which takes out all of the fine scratched the light abrasive left. i worked on mine for about 45 min and this is whats left..

I think you will have to polish after every ride now as it will probaby rust since you took the plating off. I think it's steel not alum........ :3question:

thanks for the complaments... iam not sure i didnt think of taking a magnet to it to see if it is steel, but iam 99% sure it is alum. alum will dissipate heat faster than steel i dont think yamaha would put steel on it if it didnt dissipate heat fast..
