Poor chrome on DD7 cover
« on: March 30, 2017, 08:35:20 PM »
I've had a DD7 in my 2010 Road King for 2 or 3 years now.  I like the transmission, but the chrome on the cover (where it says Baker 7 speed) is pretty much all flaked off and looks pretty trashy.  Is this typical of Baker's products or did I just get a bad chrome job from them?

No not typical, but chromers are not perfect that's for sure.

The chrome on my wife's Baker reverse transmission flaked off after a year.  One of them said they would rechrome it but then they charged me $150 for doing it.  I wasn't real happy.
Experience is something you get right after you needed it.

I've had my Baker DD6 since 2012 and the chrome is in great shape. They must have changed their chrome guys.
