Help Installing graphics......

5 posts in this topic

I finally got my new graphics today and i went and purchased the chemicals needed to remove old sticky and stuff for install. I put swingarm decals and fork covers on already but im a little scared of shrouds and tank decals because of the curves and stuff. These things are too spendy to just screw them up because lack of knowledge. any tricks of the trade you wanna offer?

do a search my friend. It's all about the hair dryer, windex, or soapy water and a little car body filler squeegy. Search graphics. Good luck. Much easier than you think!!!

thanks jave joe for the insight, sometimes i get a little ahead of myself and forget there is a ton of great info already done in previous threads. I found what i was after and tomorrow i will finish my project, i would do it tonite but a gallon can of chem-dip was knocked over in my shop and i almost passed out in there after a couple hours. Better vent that crap before going back in.

spray a light mist of water over the surface before applying. You will probably end up ripping the graphics completely off a few times before you get it right, but they are sticky as hell so don't worry about it not sticking anymore.

I agree with this, I just did mine on my supermoto, use soapy water and a hair dryer, it really really helps to have someone else there who can work the hair dryer for you while you squeegee out the water once you get the graphic placed, my wife helped me out, we actually had fun doing it together.

Just try not to handle the edges of the graphics too much as they are the hardest part to stick when its all said and done.
