I saw one of these parked up at work, I did a bit of a double take as I'd never seen one before.
A nice little bike that's for sure

I'm not fond of chrome as a decorative finish, and even less so on plastic components.
This being the case I decided to paint the instrument pods the same colour intended for the fairing interior.

Chrome:



Stripped:



Painted (before buffing):



Since painting I've decided to go with different instruments - news soon!

For the inquiring minds - the chrome was stripped with hydrochloric (muriatic) acid.  Th chrome vanished quickly, the underlying copper plating took somewhat longer.
