Rocker Reconditioning
We found over the years the best solution for the rocker chrome chipping is to first de-chrome the original rocker (as long as the base metal is not damaged), then shot peen the rocker before masking and plating (Hard Chrome). Finally, the most important step (the one Ducati skips) is to stress-relieve the rocker using an inert gas vacuum furnace. This step is critical as it relieves the inner stress caused on the chrome during the plating operation and therefore prevents the thin layer of chrome from chipping when exposed to impact in its harsh environment. Track tested for improved reliability of your Ducati.
