I have an 05, the side covers are black. I saw the chrome on earlier bikes. Is the coating on those different from the air box chrome? I ask because that and the “chrome” overflow bottle cover I have both bubbled. I bought a new pair of air boxes from another member (name escapes me) and I’m thinking about using the other pair to experiment with a different look. Not quite sure what yet though.

I honestly don't know, but your bottle cover isn't very old is it? One of the small heat shields on top of head on mine has a bubble across the top. Not a real heat shield, just a plastic trim.

There's a process to spray chrome on plastic, I looked into it a few years ago, pretty amazing process and results. Literally a couple of minutes spraying, a rinse and it's done. There's some shops that will spray whatever you send them.

I'm about to try hydro dipping, going to order a tank ($25 swimming pool) as soon I get the shop ready. They have a chrome hydrodip film but I have no idea what the results look like. Going to do Fall camo on my atv. Then maybe some guns, helmets, who knows.
Interested to see the results

“Seriously, though.... this is where the world is right now. Wish I'd been born in the fifties or sixties”

I WAS born in the fifties. Which also means I’m old now so I don’t give a crap who gets offended by stuff I say 😉
At 46, I think I’m the embodiment of Gen X lol, I’m a lot younger than my siblings who are boomers. I was raised by old-schoolers. So I have some old ideals I guess. The only time I “watch what I say” is in situations that a misstep could cause paychecks to cease. Other than that I could care less. I generally don’t attack anyone unless they take the first shot then game on.
