I took off my risers last night and hand polished them it took me close to five hours to get them to the finish I wanted. Only thing is on the inside I didn't polish the indention on the inner of the risers but They turned out pretty good

Those look great bro! I added 2" extensions to mine and polished them all together, and like the look.

A tip for smoothing out cast aluminum ( swingarm), use a D/A sander. I polished one for Bordeaux, and it was taking for ever to smooth it out. I broke out the D/A Sander, went 80 grit, to180 grit, to 400 grit, then wet sanded out tthe remaining scratches. Total pain in the a55.

What exactly do you mean by "hand polished"? Did you not use a buffing wheel at all?

Great work, bro (and fellow polisher LOL). I did mine and put some of the Kuryakyn accent trim on it. I also cut off the mounting tab and ground it down flush (sunk tach in cowl).
