No. You ever notice how some of the screws you remove have a yellow-bronzish tint to them? Its pretty much a different color of galvanization. It shouldn't really wear off but it does. I guess the best way to describe it would be to look at lets say... a rotor bolt. They're exposed to the elements like water and heat. Now pop open your tail section and take a peek at the bolts holding your oil breather expansion chamber to your frame. Those are how they should typically look when new.What is this yellow zinc plating? Is that the gold color on the frame and brembo 3 spoke wheels on a 2000 machine?
Here is a link to get in touch w/ Jim......There has been interest in this and I found a guy in New Jersey who does this type of plating. I have yet to use him, he is away for 2 weeks and will Email me when he returns home after vacation. I'll be sending him some stuff to do then.
