Polishing swingarm

Recommended Posts

i will be having my frame powder coated black soon and i was thinking the other day that if i were to be able to polish my swingarm then it might look pretty good next to the polished rear wheel(i plan on zoop sealing my wheels after i polish them that way they stay nice and polished). but im not sure about how to go about polishing the swingarm. is it even possible? if not, maybe ill just have it powder coated, if i can.

Polishing aluminum is a commen practice, unless you have the correct equipment yor better off to send it out, BUT! beware to let the polisher know not to remove material from critical mounting areas!!. The problem you'll have then is to keep the aluminum from oxidizing, (or corroding), a quality clear coat would help. If you ride rough,wett,muddy or just plain ride the bike hard then your wasteing your money??, better to spend the money and time on preformance,reliability or saftey than on trying to make the bike pretty??. just my opinion. :cry:
