2018 RGU - OEM Levers?

Hi -

I am curious if anyone knows if the factory OEM clutch and brake levers are just polished or are they actually chrome? I received a chrome pair as a gift. (These) They look awesome, but I am not sure there is a big difference in what I already have on my bike.

Wanted to see if anyone knew before I installed them...

Thanks all,
-Ryan

Nice gift. Better than OEM polished IMO.

Once I make up my mind, I'm full of indecision.

Does anyone have those levers in chrome that that have used for a while? I was wondering how the chrome will hold up over time. Unlike other chrome parts, these will have a contact with gloves, sweat, and friction.

they'll hold up better than the stock ones will, that's for sure.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Hi all -

I had time this weekend to install the chrome clutch and brake levers. Man, what a BIG difference! Super easy to do; very very happy with them.

Thought I would share a couple pics.

Appreciate the advice / input.
