Definately Alladeen. Looks crappy and its popping right off. I like bronze stainless but was painting the clutch side cover and got carried away. Bad idea.

If you like bronze stainless wetsand and polish the header. When you're done it'll look like chrome and as soon as you take the bike for a ride it'll turn a golden chrome color. It's a little work but it'll always be easier to clean after that and it looks awesome. That's free besides the time and the cost of the sandpaper. Or get it coated which will probably cost a few hundred bucks.

So I took your advice and the header looks great! Also fashion drafted off Sorneys bike and painted the side covers silver, suweet. Just may polish lips when I have the time
