Hi all

Nice to be back where I belong! Had a bandit 1200 for the past 6 years but now back on my first love "the zx9r".

Anyway just acquired a 2001 E1. Nice bike but sadly has a tatty frame and a few scuffs from a sidestand drop. Thinking of getting frame and swingarm polished. But just curious to know a few things. First of all once the bike is polished, is it then varnished to protect the metal? If not does this mean regular strip downs and touch ups?

Also does anyone know any places near Rochdale that strip down frame and swingarm and polish? (I have no DIY skills and no place to carry out the work if I did).

I'm not a fan of polishing as it means too much cleaning, so sorry I can't help.
