you can get them chromed but not a good ideal as they are thin and when riding your feet will bend it and chrome doesn't bend so it will crack and flake and then it won't look too good trust me i know polish is the best thing

Does anybody know why and the hell the left and right heal guards are different on our bikes? At least they are on the couple of 96's that I have seen.

functionality dictates the shape of em really.......i put the new style heelguards on my 99 750 (fit no problem) and it looked much cleaner, IMO
