If the scratches are only surface scatches, sometimes they can be buffed out with a rubbing compound, followed by a buffing with chrome polish. if they are deep though, it has to be either repaired and rechromed, or replaced.:(

I agree Dragoon autosol is fabulous stuff,the only downfall is here in Canada it is very very expensive.
I bought a small tube and it was almost $20,but works great!!!!

I have two tubes of Solvol Autosol in my tool box. Have had them for 20 years!! It is a metal polish - I use it sparingly!! I got it in Ireland before moving to Canada 20 years ago!!I suspect it is the same stuff. Great polish!!

We have several different types of chrome and all take a different way of repair. Some is plastic and/or ABS, others is powder coat chrome and of course the one we all love real chrome on metal. The later being the hardest in both tehcnical and repair.

I was told to use Autosol on all my collector watches from a watch builder who I bought from in Geneva. When I got home to Canada, I mentioned the great results to Hurst Yamaha whom I had bought my bike with (they started stocking it after their own tests on a tube I gave them). I use it on many other surfaces including my headlights and my windshield. It is readily available in Canada and the EU, but very hard to find in the USA. I have a good source so PM me if you need to know as I am not allowed to mention it on this forum. However, don’t take my word. Owning a Valk, I have plenty of experience in taking care of chrome, so here is a totally independent review of the product. Note it has five stars for use and results, yet only three for availability.

The problem there is you were trying to use the forum as an outlet for your commercial interests and that isn't allowed, that's probably why some of your posts were deleted.

I have been made very aware of that fact. However, I am allowed to espouse my views about Autosol. Note I did not mention where you can get it at a reasonable price, just a link to a totally independent review.

not talking about a surface cleaner rather for taking scrathes out
Check the link to the total motorcycle review. I use 100+ grit steel wool to remove scratches.

I have bad eye i guess but they look gret for me.

I can only speak from experience. However, i have never had a deep scratch because autosol is also a protectorate.

Caveat emptor.

Cheers
