Frame polishing

I have a 96 900rr. After some thought i decided to polish the frame. I noticed that there is a finish of some sort protecting the aluminum alredy. I was thinking about using some aircraft remover to get rid of that. then sand and polish.

is there any easier way to do this? Should i seal the bare aluminum after?

Re: Frame polishing

use easy-off oven cleaner to remove the paint, unlike normal paint which is easily removed with aircraft stripper, the powder coat on motorcycles is electricaly charged and then baked on, so the best thing to use is easy-off. then once you are ready, sand with 1000 grit, then again with 1500, and then 2000, anything lower than 1000 and you risk deep gouges which is hard to fix, and a good aluminum polish will protect it just fine.......but remember, once you do this, it's a pain to keep clean.
