A bit of polishing.. and a tail tidy and oil cooler cover.. set the valve clearance at the same time.

VERY nice.

With what, if anything, do your "seal" the results of your elbow grease when done?

nicely done .... if you touch it up occasionally it will hold the shine just fine , not alot of maintenance needed ..
Autosol  is a great aluminum polish used it for years, relatively low cost and it goes a long way ..

the problem with polished aluminium (or aluminum for you north american brethren) is that any impurities there when you paint or clear coat, come back to haunt you as paint/coat lifting, weather ingress, and the same cranky look that was there in the first place. Can't win...

It's a habit i picked up from owning Z650's.. although i must admit i never used every wet and dry grade from 120 to 2500 before polishing..
