I'm trying to clean oxidized spokes on my rear DRZ wheel. Any tips on how to do it? I don't think they are galvanized, zinc plated maybe?

Galvanized is another word for zinc plating.

Lots of elbow grease and Simchrome polish, I've used it on chrome and alum., never on zinc plated parts though.

have them powder coated, but all those little parts will cost a bunch, cheaper maybe to replace
