Ever since I installed the chrome master cylinders and switch housings I've noticed the handlebars are not as bright as I thought. They look to have a yellow hue to them as compared to the chrome. Is there any type of polish out there to make them shine and remove the hue?

My dealer told me they were polished stainless (at least they said the HD drag bars are) not to sure if that is the case? Anyway that's why they told me that the color was off a little, and there is not much, or if anything you can do about it.........

The stock bars are stainless steel, for sure.

I had some minor scratches on mine when I removed the windshield brackets, and they also looked a bad next to all the other chrome.
I used Turtle Wax Rubbing Compound,
then Turtle Wax Polishing Compound,
and finished with Meguiars All Metal Polish.
Took about 1/2 hour and 1 Bud Light.
Nice improvement.
