I have a few scratches on my just acquired K75 OE muffler (Bike came with a Staintune). Wondering if the OE muffler is Stainless and can be polished,.....or is it chrome plated?

I am going with stainless.
Polishes to a very high sheen.
See Halo's resto thread.

They are stainless but it takes a lot of work to get them really nice.

Thanks guys, yeah, I had a light scratch and a brown stain on my Staintune. I spent about an hour on it. I used Wet-Dry sand paper in 600,800,1200, and 1500 grits with Simichrome metal polish. Lots of work, but came up nice.
