I have an 03 GSXR 750 & want to polish my frame but I'm not sure how to. I believe there is a clear coat on the frame - does that need to be removed before I polish it, and if so what's the best stuff to use to remove it? :cool:

here is the method i used. a lot of people disagree. start with 180 grit paper, move to 220 then 320 then to 400 wet. after sanding start buffing with a hard spiral wheel with emery compound. follow that with a soft spiral sewn with tripoli. finish with a flannel buff with white rouge. look great and allows less sanding and more polishing. stopping at 400 wet does away with the cloudy look most people get when sanding to a very high grit.

I skipped the sane paer all together, and if you are CAREFULL, it comes out great.

I used a "scotchbright" pad on a right angle die grinder (you can find them for grinders and sanders though) to get all the casting out (lower frame area), and to take the paint off.

Then used a 4" grinder with a polishing wheel to polish with differnt jewelers rouges. Then finally used flanel cloth to do a final poish with the rouge.
