Chrome engine, drivetrain hardware

Looking to upgrade the engine, primary drivetrain hardware from the stock zinc to chrome or polished stainless. Anybody have any advice on this. I can piece it out through Harley or maybe a kit through Gardner Westcott. Whats your experiences good or bad? I'm not a fan of toppers unless you guys talk me into it. Thanks!!!!!!

I would go the stainless route, you can polish the head of them yourself if they aren't shinny enough. Chrome bolts will eventually flake inside the head once they are installed and removed a few times. You can pick them up at most Ace Hardware or Lowes type places.

I went with Kuryakyn for all chrome parts for the motor. Sometimes I worry about any heat buildup.
