I have used it on my aluminum lowers on my old low rider and its held up pretty well. I can't speak to chrome, it covers very well but I would give it multiple light coats, I have seen on other forums guys using it on chrome with good results I just never have. the best part is if it sucks it comes off really easily!!!!

Holds up very good, just make sure you clean surface real good & use light coats like y2kflhr said. I did air cleaner & horn cover on my brothers bike last year, still good. Swomack is the plasti dip guru & has all the answers on this stuff :)

Yep
Just clean the chromed surface and do two very light coats to start, then hit two more coats mid to heavy, without getting runs, and your good to go. If you want a semi satin finish hit two or three coats of Plasti-Dips "Glossifier". The stuff is amazing and holds up very well. You can peel it right off without any issues with paint or chrome from my experience with the stuff. I know a guy who did all of his tins for a cross country touring trip and when he got home he simply just peeled it off and his paint still looked like new without and paint issues. My lower forks, my front and back rims, and I had dipped my chrome horn.
You can find many videos on YouTube under Pasti-Dip.
I have 36,000+ miles on my 2015 RGS so yes I can tell you the stuff holds up well. Better then I would have thought. If you have anymore questions just let me know.

It will hold up fine just need to be sure that all wax is removed I used dawn dish soap followed by wax and tar remover. Just remember the more coats you apply the easier it will be to remove later.
