    Aluminum Clutch & Brake Levers - Beware!

    I couple months ago I purchased a pair of “CNC Brake Clutch Levers For Yamaha V-Max VMAX” on ebay for my 85 Max. The brake lever was no problem, you do need to use the stock reducer bushing to install. The aluminum clutch lever comes with a .392 or 9.95mm diameter aluminum insert which has a...

You can't clean them, polish them or even make them look half decent..I've tried every kind of polish I can find and still can't make them look nice.
