Your posts have been quite inspiring Rudy, thank you! The mod bug is in full effect for me this winter, in addition to all the stuff I'm adding and taking off the bike I'm also getting into all the maintenance and little details I've neglected over the years outside of changing the oil. After seeing your posts on what polished aluminum can look like when properly taken care of and maintained, I knew I had to get into it and start taking care of the nasty oxidized parts. Last week I took a 4 1/2" hole saw to my front pulley cover and removed the center and for the last couple weeks I've been watching videos and reading articles on sanding and polishing aluminum. So much so lately that my lady was on the phone with her brother in NYC last night and when he asked what I was up to she responded, in a loving and smart a$$ tone, "he's probably watching more videos of sanding and polishing motorcycle parts." I can't wait to get this mod finished then its off to my foot controls, engine fins and clutch cover.
Cool bro, thanks for noticing the work I've been doing. These polished parts can stay looking good with a quick polisher here and there. They'll stay nice without any polish for some time especially if the bike is parked inside a shed or garage.
Check out my gallery of other parts I've done on my bike and Joeyallessi bike aswell. It makes a big difference that's for sure. That's cool your putting hands on as it seems not many are anymore, keep up the work your doing and it'll pay off. That wife thing is funny lol. It sound like mine some years back when I was checking out vids also.

Thanks Alan, I'm surprised you noticed the decomp cover. I wasn't sure if it stood out like I origionally thought when I first polished the fin edges on it.
I kept the groved area on the oil tank for that reason you mentioned, contrast. It breaks things up aswell as to not be to 'chrome' looking.
I was interested in this exhaust (felony exhaust) from this company so I decided to give them a call today and got the run around. I was placed on hold and transferred to different voice mails only to get hung up on. Has anyone done business with them recently? Is this normal practice for this...
Two weeks ago I had a chance to buy a 2004 Warrior as a project bike.
It is in great condition and came with a lot of goodies that I'm in the process of selling.
This is what it looked like 2 weeks ago:
To visualize what I hope to accomplish, I took a warrior stock image and painted the...
First Happy new year to you all
I want to change my bars from stock which I did before but the bars had too many degrees of pull back and I found them uncomfortable on a long run made my wrists ache
Now I like T bars and Z bars but I’m not sure on the look yet z's might be too much I try...
I'll start this thread to keep it updated. Once my bike is complete I'll have a slideshow of before my accident and after. It's a whole new bike. Lots of painting and powder coating happened. But to start this thread here's my new Graffeo 2-1 and Churchkey V-Bak. Here's video of the Graffeo...
Before I get started, YES saddle bags are not for everyone, esp on a Warrior. But these will serve my needs on a 2,200 mile road trip this summer down the "Great River Road" and i think i've reached the age of practicality is nice at times.
Got my "New" bags installed on my warrior. I took a...
