Ok, how do I clean the dull finish on the 883 engine? Also, is it worth polishing up the chrome clutch cover etc. on a bench-polisher?

This is my first bike, first HD. I took a "Direct Access" course (a short-cut to riding bigger engined bikes) at the grand old age of 35 just so I could take a step on the HD ladder - so don't get all snobby about Sportsters please.

PS. Only had it 1 week and I've upset the neighbours with the noise - fantastic. No way would I buy an itchyfanny now - sports bike:confused:

From what I've read, IIRC the dull finish is actually powder coated on. To polish the cylinders, you have to remove it, and get the aluminum super smooth.
