Obviously I got absolutely nowhere with the MoCo despite very active support from my dealer.
I was considering a new wheel but just can't bring myself to part with the $$$ for what may be another 'faulty' wheel. A local chrome company has taken a look and, although they won't chrome on aluminium, they have suggested a mirror polish
I have had a look at some of the aluminium parts they have done this process on - and I was surprised by the results. It was very difficult to tell them apart from the chrome on the bike when I put them together.
This might be a better option and is certainly a lot cheaper than a new wheel.
Has anybody done this at all? What did the end product look like? Were you happy?
