I have a white '07 450 and the graphics on the shroud are just starting to peel up. I haven't fallen on them, and I ride OK, but I don't think I'm fast enought to peel the graphics off my bike!:smirk: Any good tips to stick them back down?

You can use 3M spray adhesive to reattach them.

But I would be curious as to what is causing them to peel in the first place.

My guess would be using a pressure washer, or possibly the cleaning solution you use when washing the bike.

My graphics on my left shroud are peeling aswel, 07 yz450. I have never washed my bike with a pressure washer. Ive heard the 3m spray is the ticket also.

There just junk. I had both of my shroud graphics peeling back just like you mentioned and a whole 9hrs on the bike. I tried reheating the glue with a hair dryer but just opted to throw on an after market set.

all i know is that if you choose to go after market like DECAL WORKS, then you better not plan on taking them off.

they sent me a sample sticker, and i could NOT get the goo off.

i tried, GAS, goo-gone, rubbing alcohol, and a few other things and i couldn't get the goo off.

If you let the glue soak in gas it comes off. If you rub gas on it it wont. Goo Gone sucks.
