Big bubbles in graphics

It's unfortunate but I'd be hard pressed to think of one of my riding buddies who's got a WR where the stock tank graphics lasted more than six months. I've heard it's a combination of the thin material Yamaha uses for the graphics and the extremely porous nature of the tank itself.
Unfortunately you'll probably find it get's worse as it gets hotter out.
Best success I've had is to replace with an aftermarket graphic. Even then, you're probably going to find they bubble a bit. A lot of folks end up running without tank graphics at all.
Cheap graphics aside. You'll love your new ride!

Do not use rubbing compound, it makes a surface friction and you stand a chance of blowing youself up! If any bubbles do form, just take a razer knife and make a small slit and push the air out.
