Hi guys I don't much about this (yet) but when I'm on the highway going about 70-75 mph my bike is really loud. It sounds like I need another gear? I don't know anything about gear ratios or if anything can be done about how long the gears can go, but is there something I can do about it being so lo...

Re: Chromium prices?

Chrome plating is getting harder to find and more expensive because of it. It uses and produces tremendous amounts of toxins in the process which is why it's starting to disappear. Dealing with the waste is extremely expensive but you just can't let this stuff get into the environment. For things t...

Re: Chromium prices?

I read last year there is a clear engine paint that takes heat. Brand unknown, I just remember it's a new product. Gives the engine the 'wet look'. Acrylic clear (IF i remember) can take 275*F ??? The water base clear coat on our Wings holds up to temps. Panels near the exhaust never fail. MAYBE? K...

Re: Chromium prices?

Fork sleeves? Will chrome exhaust pipe work? Maybe chrome sink tubes. Cut to fit. After cleaning the chrome (not perfect) use aluminum foil and rub hard. What I understand is the aluminum deposits in the rust pores and looks like chrome. Once satisfied, clear coat or that "Once a year polish" stuff...

Exact prices vary quite a bit so I can't help. Also there's very few here that may have a price. Couple years ago I gave up looking for a reasonable price for mid to small parts. If I must I will spray paint it. I don't hear good things about spray chrome, to soft. Customer of mine has his own busi...
