Am swapping bars on a 70 SL350 KO.
The right switch was replaced with the Black K1 finished switch.
As it was the replacement available from Honda 20 yrs ago.
(That black finish is tough, tried removing a spot. Not sure what it is? But its on there)

Would like to know what the orig perch and switch finish was?
As mine are almost 50 yrs old, not easy to tell.
Polished alum clear coated? Grey / silver paint with a clear coat?
Anodized alum? Now seems like the time, as they are off the bike.

Thanks

The BLACK is anodized and dyed aluminum.

Thats what I was thinking. Guess I will just make the L side match. Rather than trying to remove or replace.
The bike was parked for 20 years when it got smashed in a fall. The prev owner purchased the part from Honda, but never installed.
I installed it 7 yrs ago to get the bike running again. Not a show bike, so they will both be matching black I guess.
Thanks for the confirmation...........
