Default Question/Problem with underdrive pulley( pics inside )

Ok just recieved my underdrive pulley and it is quite rusty? The pics on vendors site make them look like there polished or chrome, maybe I'm picky but om not interested in putting $400.00 rusty parts on my bike.

Second problem is that 10 of the teeth (all consecutive) have a weird machining/tool marks on them the rest are smooth and rusty! Lol

Could be old stock where the oil coating got rubbed off. Not going to affect performance. Is it going to be exposed or under the OEM cover?
Have you brought your concerns up to your vendor?

As far as the machine marks, I personally wouldn't worry about them but if it bothers you then definitely contact your vendor.

Sent them an email today no response yet.

Yah it just seems weird to put bare metal on just to rust behind a cover.
When I pull the cover off am I going to find the stock unit all rusty?

Anyone see any problem having it coated maybe with one of those super hard self lubricating coatings used on guns? I forget the names of them but my Glocks are custom EXO coated from Talo.

Or should I just sand and paint it to prevent future rust.

I would agree. It prob doesn't look much different in finish from the stock unit. Which I doubt is coated in Amy fashion.

I wouldn't sweat it. Maybe just make sure there are no sharp edges where the belt comes in contact with it. The rust is a non issue. Take some sandpaper to it if it really bothers you knowing it's there and wax it or something to keep it from rusting again.
