While these of course can be repolished it can be very time consuming depending on the equipment you have at hand and you don't want to have your bike off the road just to be polishing a pair of valve covers.



If you can pick up a pair on ebay etc. at a reasonable price I'd go for it, even if these themselves need repolishing, at least your bike will be on the road while you're doing them.



I keep 2 sets of these for my bike so I can swap them at services and have until next service to have a pair repolished to swap over again. Ditto the oil filter case as these can be a real mongrel to polish too.



Once these parts have had the initial polish done on them it doesn't take a lot of effort to keep them shiny.

Hadn't thought of that, I still do the whole wet and dry and hand polish. The first grade of which gets to rip off the clearcoat and corrosion all in one hit. Tedious, but it works.
