That what I figured was just hoping I might find someone with a little trick to keep it shining I’ll just buy a mother’s ball and go over it all every once in a while

Keeping Polished aluminum looking like a 'mirrior' just as it did when first polished, takes a lot of time and work. Only way is to wash-clean-dry thoroughly after each ride session, and go over all polished surfaces with a compound like Mothers Polish. Same applies to Chromed Metal.

While I like the look of Polish & Chrome, and BDT Motorsports builds & sells a lot of show room engines & pipes configurations, my favorite is the 88/89 engine look and 'Raw' pipe. The semi-black bottom end + natural as cast cylinder & head, IMO offer the least maintenance, easy to keep clean, and look good. 'Raw' pipes need to be cleaned & Oiled regularly to keep the factory 'WURKS' look.
