FLU Graphics, great deal
Posted April 04, 2006 - 10:14 AM
I just bought them and they came in yesterday. I am in the process of putting it all together and should have some before and after photos, but until then i just wanted to see if anyone has used them and if they hold up well.
But you get such a great deal it is almost a no brainer to buy them.
This is what you get for ONLY $75!!!!!!
This is for my 2002 YZF426
1. Gripper seat cover
2. Fork Lower and Upper
3. Number Plate (both black and white options)
5. Tank (Up to the cap)
6. Side Panels (both black and white options)
7. Airbox (both black and white options)
9. Front Fender
10. Rear Fender
Plus some miscellaneous ones from Motosport, Racer X, FLU, etc
Hopefully i can get these on in the next few days cause i am taking my sweet ole time to do them right. Plus it is raining for like a week anyways..
But let me know if anyone has tried them.

their web shop said that they were out of stock, so i didn't dare to order a kit for my 426 ...
please post some pictures, the one on the web page is not a yz426f ...

I don't think they are as thick as the One Industries decals i am taking off, but they give you so much stuff for $75 that it is worth it.
I should have some photos ready. Or maybe i should just post them when its all done?

What would be sweet is those MDK graphics in white on white plastic and the white covers for the blue tank. That would be a sweet kit.

It is the LINK in the first message.
But here is is anyways...
Then click Yamaha, YZ426. $75. Order em up.
I just started putting my graphics on last night. This is the very first time i have ever put MX graphics on so i was kind of sketched at first, but i think it was actually really basic. I just took my time and used the various methods from other users on this forum.
I will post some of my early photos in a little while, but when my whole process is done, i am going to start a new topic.
My method for putting on graphics...
1. Pull off old graphics with hair dryer.
2. Use Goof-Off to get rid of the sticky stuff left over. Goof Off RULES.
3. Take plastic off, clean with soapy water, then contact cleaner. Put back on.
4. Windex on the plastic, decent amount.
5. Stick em on.
6. Use hair dryer to evaporate the windex quicker and fit the graphics on.
Pretty basic really.
Oh yeah, for the tank, i removed it, drained it, let the cap off.
Just in case i guess cause i have heard that graphics on the tank come off easily or white ones fade. Mine are blue.
I think the Windex thing is just soooo good. No problem putting the stuff on and it moves around a bit and by the time it dries, you have it planted on there. Just went slow and used the hair dryer tons to get it all hot and sticky on the plastic.
I will send some early photos in a few minutes....
One No-No that i did was my bike is crazy dirty. It has been raining for a week now in Central Coast of CA and i just didn't want to look like a dummy outside pressure washing my bike in the rain.
But i just had to clean the plastic up a bit first. So don't laugh at my early photos cause my bike is dirty and in pieces. When it is all done, it is going to look sick.

Just took off the One Industries stickers. Pretty dirty bike right now.
A look at the left side. Still dirty.
Front view. Got my new ASV Levers on there though. That is the only clean part.
This is when i started putting the new stuff on. Just the front fender and swingarm.
Right side with tank and shroud added
Left side with tank and shroud added.
More photos to come.
This is all i got done last night.

Flu Graphics Definately Has A Killer Deal, But The Graphics Are A Little Plain. On The Other Hand, It's The Only The Only Other Graphic Kit I've Heard Of For The 426.
Anyway, The Kit At Btosports Looks Pretty Cool But Will Cost You 140 Bucks. From What Brian Says, It Doesn't Appear It Comes With As Many Decals As The Flu Kit, But It Does Look Cool.

Here is the complete kit photo...

The next time i add photos, it will be early next week because my number plate is blue and i ordered a white one. I have been waiting for that to get the FLU graphics number plate background on there. So that is the only thing left graphics wise.
Plus tonight i am putting on Black Renthal Fatbar RC High bars and a new barpad. Then it is complete.
So here are the latest photos...
Front Side angle. Still has the One Industries number plate background and blue number plate. Switching to white plate.
Right Side. Still don't have the right side airbox decal on.
Back half, left side
Front half, left side
Front half, right side
Ride side motor closeup
Right side back angle
Left side back angle
I am going to post a new thread early next week with the new complete photos which will be taken outside and will look better. Not in my garage at midnight with no lighting and a crappy digi cam flash.
