I still have the airbox graphics, swing arm, fork and headlight graphic to fit, but im waiting for a nice mild day so they stick properly.

I took it out over to derbyshire for a good blast! Loved it! We took some VERY challenging trails and i was trying my hardest not to come off it. Managed to stay on anyway........just about :bonk:



We ended up doing around 50 miles on the trails, and to say i was knackered afterwards is an understatement. Much better than spending all day at the gym though! :bonk:

Where did you get the white front headlight plastic and the rear tail piece did you need to modify the rear or is it for a wr?

[COLOR="Green"]I think it looks great

For me I didnt want to put graphics on my WR and draw attention to it by the cops while riding on the road. The licence plate on my bike was the most legal thing about it.

I do like your bike alot[/COLOR]

Cheers. :bonk:

suzukipoo, the number plate holder was on the bike from new as part of the DRC road kit. Here is the link for it mate.....

The headlight cowl is actually a vinyl wrap. It took a while to do, and i still actually need to do the reverse side, but you cant really tell unless you look closely from a couple of feet away. I decided to go this route instead of painting it as im sure paint would just flake off with the jet wash or once it gets some abuse from rocks/stones etc.

Im going to see how the vinyl wrap does for a few weeks before i put the headlight graphic on, but its doing great at the moment so i think thats definatly the way to go if you want to go white.

Cheers, the vinyl wrap i did myself. Its not really that hard, but a little time consuming to get right. Its just a case of getting some thin vinyl and working it on with a hair dryer in sections. Obviously because you have to do it in alot of sections (especially round the edges), you do get a few small creases and some visible joins but you can work them flat with the hair dryer so there not really noticable until your very close and only if your specifically looking for them. Definatly the way to go instead of paint in my opinion.

[COLOR="Green"]I understand how you installed it
I dont understand what it is
Is it the stuff you make number plate backrounds out of? Is it 3M material?
You did a real clean job on the headlight no matter what it is[/COLOR]

Yeah its the same sort of thing as the backgrounds mate, just very thin. The thinner the better i would say so its easier to mould round the edges. I just went to my local sign makers and bought 3 A4 vinyl sheets for £2. :bonk:

Im in Sheffield. Their number is 01438 880170. I paid £30 for mine, but i had a few other bits from them for another bike too so it might work out a bit more if you only want that mate.
