    Anodized frame?

    Do the earlier milles like my 01 come with silver anodized or some kind of finish frame and swingarm as standard?
    I would just like to know before i start trying to polish with Autosol.
    Thanks,

    I clean mine with WD40 to get a nice sheen, same with the wheels

    Don't touch it with anything abrasive or it will remove the anodizing and then you won't be a happy Lone Ranger

    Frankies frame and swing arm are polished, needs constant polishing (Autosol) as it loses its shine quite quickly.....................
