Can I see some before and after pics please?

Here you go.... bear in mind these are in a dark garage and just after using the polishing mops. I'd not polished them with autosol or anything like that to finish them at this stage, hence the fingerprints etc...

First note that I do not necessarily prescribe to the methods recommended in different parts of this thread. To each his/her own. Several different ways and they all work to varying degrees I guess. Nevertheless, I did notice at least one concern that no pictures were provided. Here are a few of my 1999 R6...before and after polishing.

The polished look is nice for sure, but depending on where you live a lot of maintenance. I'm in Ohio and on my previous bike polished the front/rear sets brake/clutch levers, and was always having to do them again because of issues with rusting. It was my first time so not 100% it was done right, but on my bike now (silver 04 R6) just going to have them powder coated black. Good luck to you.
