I'm looking into croming my 06 R1 too i live in GA and the place that i have found is TARA Powersports they are located in Jonesboro. My dad and i checked out their work and it was very good but they send parts out to CA and from what i saw you would want then to. He showed us a swing arm done in GA and it looked like crap. But the owner did get arressted for having stolin bikes in hte shop so im iffy about leaving my bike up there the worker i talked to seemed like a real nice clean guy though you can check them out at www.tarapowersports.com Hope that will help you. just let me know if you find any other places or if you want a phone number. I plan on getting my wheels done soon but that is just exchange ill post pics for you then

There are two really great ways to totally destroy a motorcycle. You can push it over a cliff, or you can get chrome plated. The cliff method is much cheaper and a whole lot faster too. If you're looking to add fancy things up a bit, I recommend polishing, powder coating, anything but chrome plating. Chrome is fine on steel but makes no sense whatsoever for soft alumunum.

If I wanted powder coated i would have just left it alone. And polishing will never look as good as chrome. My car has American Racing Torque Thrust II that are highly polished and my bike has chrome wheels. No matter how long i polish on my cars wheels the will never look as good. Have had or heard of any problems for chrome plating aluminium. As a matter of fact American Racing offers chrome plated wheels like mine i just didn't have the money. If it was bad why would they offer this.
