You're welcome. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unless they changed to aluminum for the sidestand on the S*R series you're outa luck an anodizing it. Anodizing is an aluminum process and won't work on ferrous metals.
They did change to aluminum. I'm pretty well aware of what anodizing is after reading the 100 or so articles that I did before trying it
I think the problem was with the stripping & etching process I used - Drano in Water.
