Does anyone know for sure whether Fat Boy Wheels (2002) are clear-coated. I screwed min up with a cleaner and I think what I have is corrosion that I just need to polish out but I want to be sure.

I don't think they are coated myself. A rag with some Mother's on it turns black which i've heard means they are not coated.

Anyhow, no offense to anyone here, but this is not a poll about what you guess. I would really only be helped if someone actually knows the answer.

logical !!!

2002 Softail owners manual page 189 "Alminum wheels (spoked or disc)
do not have clear coat on any of the machined surfaces."

Try some semichrome polish or the HD equivalent ( made by the same people ) then put some HD glaze on them. I have used other silicone "waxes" like Nufinish but the HD glaze seems to work better & longer.
