The best way to keep graphics
Posted August 23, 2003 - 08:56 AM
during last year BUT it's trying to get off. It's rather expensive and I don't like the idea to buy a new one so soon. Are there any tips and tricks how to keep our graphics? Share your experience. Especially how to apply a new graphics (probably i'll just use some glue (which one BTW?) with my used one)

Any graphics you put on will peel off the tank after a while.
I have a vision of my next 2004 wr250 with not a sticker any were on the bike except for my orv sticker. I am tired of replacing graphics. Its a waste of time and money.

yeah i put a post on about this before. i am starting to lose mine from washing the bike. i wish there was a way i could keep them but it seems everyone's stickers come off eventually. i'll just leave them off till i get ready to sell it next and put some new ones on it. i have actually had mine fall off while washing and stuck it back on with the water and the water dried and the sticker stayed lol.

YZman hit the nail on the head, its the gas and fumes that leach through the plastic tank. Dissolves the glue. I called Factory Effex on this issue and they say the Yamaha tank is thinner plastic that most others. There advise was to drain the gas after riding.
