When putting the new ones on make sure the plastic is clean, clean, clean. use the heat gun/ hd and heat up the plastic and graphics. Use the heat to stretch the graphics around the contours of the plastic. Some people spray windex or soap and water on the plastic and leave it wet to help the graphics slide into position.
Take your time don't panic and if they doen't go where you want peel it back and try it again. Most graphics that are good quality are forgiving enough to allow you to peel 'em off a few times until you get it right.
Oh and only peel off a portion of the backing until you get them in place.

Let dry overnight and waaalaaa a pretty bike!!!
Also if you mess up and have to peel back the graphics.... be careful not to stretch them to much as you do it.

I use the windex to help align the graphics as well. Clean all of the plastic with alcohol as well if there is any contaminates you will get bubbles.
