OK...so this isn't a very bright question...

The KDX swingarm IS aluminum, ain't it?? Seems to attract a magnet awfully good if it is.

Does it polish out well?

Is there an aluminum replacement for the KDX?

It's Aluminum. Never polished mine but other people have and it looks fine. You may want to put a clear over it to stop oxidation if you do polish it.

Uhhh...
I polished mine and it isn't rusting...
Where did you put the magnet?
Are you sure it wasn't one of the special "Luminum magnets? ;)

Everyone knows it's really 'aluminium', anyway.

Great! Settles a question from someone I know (who shall remain nameless) who's looking for an excuse to buy some foreign halloween painted bike.

Those would be awful pretty welds for steel, huh?

Thanks again.

i polished mine and it looks great, also did my fork legs, "check out pics page" its easy and it dosent take much to keep it looking good, just a bit of mag wheel polish, it looked way better than some of the scratches that were in the gray paint.:cool:
