6061 in T6 temper is aircraft aluminum as far as I know, and it is what Scootworks says they use. You should be fine with it. It will polish like chrome if you are patient. I get all my metal from Online Metal. They specialize in small-quantity orders for hobbyists and the like. Great prices, and you don't have to by a 6 foot rod when all you need is 6 inches.
You may need a deeper recess to allow for the shoulder on the studs in the handlebars. Mine were almost .5" long.
I don't know about the H6 threadform. I just bought a 10mmx1.25 tap off the shelf at the hardware store and it seems to have worked. I used grade-5 flange-head bolts (10mm-1.25 x 1.25") that I picked up at the same time.
Nothing says COOL like a fat old man on a motorcycle
