Anyone know if there are chrome lower fork covers for the Fury?

I haven't seen any but most everyone I know around my area has had them chromed with the exchange program. You drop off your bike and for $500 they break it down and install a set of chrome ones and your off any running. I'll probably eventually go this route myself in the future.

I think having the stock lower legs chromed is way better than installing a chrome cover, but that is just my opinion.

I guess if theres a couple hours labor, you may be right $500 is not too far off. Anyone know what the lowers are made of? Is is forged steel with a clear coat or Aluminum?

I here ya! I think there is a lot of parts that appear to be over priced but what are you going to do. We will continue to buy them and complain and life will go on and I'll get on the phone now and see when they can schedule me in.

Dollaring me to death....I'll wait or figure out how to polish them in my garage for nothing.

I figure it this way, I like the Fury and want to improve the looks in an affordable way, after all that is one of the many reasons I bought the Fury. If my math is close, and I add everything I want to add to the Fury to make it look right, the price either equals 1- ass kicking looking Fury or...a Big bear Bike kit....or a Big dog......or......

Man, I'm passing around the ideal in my head to purchase some Honda Fury parts, fork tubes, front & rear brake cylinders, rear drive and ring covers and have them chromed. Then use those to get chromed and have the parts as core exchange parts and resell them.
Sounding like a good side business opportunity.
Problem is demand and getting stuck with a bunch of parts.
Fork tubes are $215 each, front & rear brake cylinders at $100 each..etc

dba.. Tony_Fury Exchange .... lol

Are the fork tubes complete for 215 or just the lowers?

Unless you own your own chrome plating facility you'll get priced out of the market as some chrome shops already do this type of work. Assuming your not doing this out of the kindness of your heart and looking to make a profit.

Gateway Xtreme has been successfully doing a VTX exchange program for many many years now. I'm sure they are building up their supply of Fury parts as we speak.

There you go assuming...
You saying I don't have a kind heart? Well are ya?
j/k..:)
Yes I'm aware of Gateway Xtreme and their prices..
I have a local chromer that would work a decent price, and no I'm not looking to get in the exhange program..
But in all honesty these exhange places are just middle men.
The VTX1300 has been around quite a while, while they are ripping the new production bike parts for more margin.

Gateway is a chrome plating company not a middle man so I don't know how you can beat their price unless you skip on quality. They get their parts for a number of sources: eBay, forums, buy new OEM, parts people send in for cores, etc..

I chromed my lowers!

Looks 100% better now. They did not have an exchange when I did it, so I chromed them the same time I had my side panels painted. Took about 2 weeks to get it back, but both mods were worth it!
