Jimmy mine is aluminium and coated with nothing , hence the elbow grease needed when it's cleaning time. Mine is a 2013 roadster pal.

Thanks I'm thinking of trying Simple Green Ultimate! Says it's safe for aluminum.

The early bikes had coated rims. there were problems with the coating peeling and cracking so later bikes were uncoated. Not sure when the coating was dropped but I'd guess an '06 would be coiated unless a previous owner polished it off.
