Most any glass cleaner works, but I'm currently using some aerosol foaming glass cleaner that I got at Walmart, it's in a white can with a baby-blue cap, I can get the brand name if anyone's really interested.
As much as it pained me, because he was a major dufus, I actually asked my former supervisor what he used because the chrome on his bike(SG, that shoudl tell you something) always had the show-chrome shine.

Yep. Bought a can of Flitz about 6 years ago and I still have about 2/3 of it left. Great stuff.

I am not a fan of chrome, but since I can afford right now to replace it, I might as well make it look nice. Got a can of Eagle One Never Dull. It's a cotton wadding type of stuff. Not all that happy with it.

A local shop has a custom polish called Just 2 Easy. Works on all metals very similar to simichrome only liquid.

Turtle wax is as good as anything out there. Polishing chrome isn't quite as picky as waxing you bike. I use Pig Snot Wax !!
