I've got an aluminum Micron slip on that is currently polished. It is a pain in the ass to keep it shiny. It dulls a bit after a few days and then it doesn't look all that bad until I polish a part of it. Then I can really see how dull it is. I really like the brushed aluminum finish of the frame and swing arm on my '01R1 and the connector pipe on my exhaust. I'd like to get the same finish on the end can. I guess I'll have to have it bead blasted with an ultra fine media, right? Any suggestions? I am just tired of polishing the end can. I really don't want to shell out the $$$ for a new sleeve either.

Sooooooooo, is there anyone out there who can help a bro out with some tips/techniques/suggestions/solutions/etc.? I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks all,
