Type of Aluminium used for engine mounts on KX450f?

Anyone have any idea what type of aluminum Kawasaki uses for the motor mounts on a 2010 KX450f?  I am doing some anodizing and thought I would do those while the engine is out.  Anodizing company would like to know what type of aluminum.

 

Thanks.

 

 

I'm curious why they would ask/care. I'm thinking any anodizing on those mounts is better than none, so it need not be perfect.

 

I'm guessing it's 6063. Or basic 6061. I'd be very surprised if it's any 7000 series alloy because it corrodes so much.

maybe they want to see if He can tell between cast and billet ?
