Chrome levers were amongst the first options in the Aug. '04 (already?) Rocket III release package. I specified them, amongst other goodies (chrome oil tank, hardware kit, clock and fuel gauge kit, etc.) upon... triumphantly placing my order. I got the bike a month later with most of the dealer-installed goodies on it. Except for them levers. The dealer suggested that plating would have make them too brittle. They have since vanished from Triumph's menu. Jamie:cool:

I tried.... but no luck

I bought an extra set and took them to a guy who specializes in putting chrome on aluminum but my problem was I couldn't get the rivot off that held the two pieces together on each lever. And if I got them apart, how in the &(*% would I put them back together?
Not removing the rivet would give you a beautifully chromed lever that wouldn't move!

Flip, help me out on this one!

I got chrome levers and chrome end caps, no thanks to Triumph though. I bought extras and sent them to be chromed. I absolutely love em. And for the life of me, I can't figure why Triumph doesn't offer them.
