Identifying Aluminum Grade...

Alritey, peeps:

So, I'm about to get a ton of parts (for my R1) anodized. I need to know the grade of Al used for each part, or else the process will be a flop. I don't really want to have to pay for any more testing than I have to though. So, does anyone know the grade of Al used for the side stand (on an 07 R1)? What about the stand's mounting plate?
