Take plastics off before apply decal?

If I put the graphics on with the plastic off the bike will they be twisted or move when the plastic flexes as the shrouds are bolted on?

If you are matching them to a design on a seat cover I think it's best to keep them on the bike to ensure they align right. On that note, I also think it's best to put the seat cover on first and then match the shroud graphics to the seat cover. It's harder to match the seat cover to the graphics vs the other way around.

I agree. I like to sit at my kitchen table with everything I need and work like a gentlemen. I'd probably bring the tank in, too. It's just preference, though. Each has its advantages.
It's easyer for me to do when they are on my lap.

Just putting the bike back together now (had shocks and fork re-valved as well). I wish putting that f^%$ing airboot back onto the carby got easier each time I did it. They're magic bikes, but jeez they're still pricks to work on in some areas.
bloody oath maaaate i second that,
