    Pick up some 0000 steel wool (ultra fine) at a hardware store.
    Really, It works fantastic and will not scratch the chrome in any way.
    Give it a try..
    I have been using it for years.

    I was able to bring my chrome back with steel wool and wd-40.

    Never Dull or Luster Pad both are similar and work well:14:

    A soaking wet SOS pad used very lightly will remove small specks of surface rust........
    It will work on deeper rust but several applications are needed.
    Rub very lightly and gently each time being very careful not to scratch the chrome. Also don't use the pad after the cleaner is used up in the pad

    Do not use steel wool on chrome...very small microscratches will give it a satin finish...:devil

    Never dull or chrome polish works, followed up periodically with Pledge does the deed nicely. :p

    I had heard once that you take a piece of aluminum foil and run the affected area. haen't tried it but who knows/ Who first thought of putting Pledge on your motorcycle? It works too !

    Ride safe
