I cut the lock hole and mounts off the top triple clamp. Then sanded and polished.

Dude when you say polish you really, really mean it.  Look great.  The clamps are aluminium, right?  Will you be putting some kind of protective coating on them or leave them as is?

No worries re. the beads.  Seems like some folk swear by them and some won't go near them.  All I know is they work great in my ride.  I had a harder time sourcing Dyna beads here in Canada and so got the Counteract beads instead.  From what I've read they're better, but who really knows?

Yeah the clamps are aluminum and lately Iíve been just leaving everything I polish raw. The dude I take my chrome bits to talked me into leaving it raw and then giving it a quick rub down with xtreem metal polish once in a while.

Good plan. I gave the fork tubes on my 750 a raw, brushed finish too, and just give them a rub down with a scotchbrite pad every now and then.

Iíve never heard of that polish, but Iíd be interested to hear how it hold up.
