As some of you may remember, I took a spill on my 2nd ride on my 450 and munched the right side shroud and graphic a bit:

I have a new set of One Industries Alpha graphics that I practically stole I've been dying to put on, but I'm wondering if I should wait for some more severe damage to occur (not that I plan on crashing :applause:). Opinions?

did you get just the shrouds graphics if so you might want get some new shrouds and put you new graphics on them so when you race you can put your crappy ones on and when you are just messing around you can put your good ones on

otherwise I would wait a little while and see what happens but hey falling is part of riding

I'd wait. It really isn't that bad.

You can remove the stock graphics if you heat them a little. Use a blowdrier or heat gun. Pull them off and store them on wax paper.

Since the new graphics have a slit almost exactly where the crack is, I decide to wait until I get new shrouds to put the graphics on. Next question... blue or black shrouds?

Or you could go with these over the damaged shrouds -

You can also tear the backing totally away and spray some window cleaner on the backside, then place them on plastic and start rubbing them on with a credit card. Start from the middle towards edges and drive the liquid away.

I saw those and really like them, but I got a screaming deal on the One Industries kit. I'll bet those have a slit similar to the graphics I picked up anyways, right where the shroud curves and right where mine is cracked!!! :applause:
