Graphics kits?

10 posts in this topic

My BRP is in need of a makeover.

I have been considering the Factory Effex or N-Style grahics kits for the XR. :thumbsup: Anyone have these graphics?

Does anyone know who else makes graphics kits for the BRP? Post pics of your BRP graphics if you have them,

Thanks in advance

Have the Factory Effex. ..looks good, but the tank discolors and then peels off due to the fumes penetrating the tank.

Need a way to do this so we are not changing every 6mths.

And you can't buy just the tank part. :thumbsup:

I've tried them all and they never stick. The aftermarket graphics co's need to thin out their material and follow suit with the stock sets. You rub the graphic with your pants and it peels them. My tank is NeKiD... :thumbsup:

lately, whenever i replace shrouds, i just leave the stock stickers on and use the clear sheets from the sticker companies, cut them to size, and put them over the stock decals for protection.

if you decide to buy aftermarket graphics, periodically check this ebay seller's auctions. every now and then he will place a set of factoryfx graphics for the 650r up for auction and they can be had for a decent price. right now he has some swingarm graphics for the 650r that look pretty sano:

I think the One industries and factory effec have discontinued production of graphics for the pig. At least that's what I was told. Sux...

I heard that too so I bought the last 2 sets that came up on E-Bay.

That's what Bob told me from the other site. I won't buy another set. One tank graphic already came off after three rides and I did it properly. Ran 3 tanks of gas through the new tank, then cleaned it up good. Used a heat gun etc.etc. Still came right off. You can't keep a bike looking to nice for too long here in New England.

Thanks for the info.

I have found the perfect look for my bike!

This look is free of charge!

What I did is just took the Pig out for a ride after a little rain storm. The mud applied well and looks great!

From reading the replies to this post I think I will invest on other things than expensive stickers that eventually come off the bike. The way I ride, the stickers would be all scratched and coming off anyway. :thumbsup:

Thanks again for the info.
