I responded to an earlier post in here http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=765371 for a person seeking help on pipe-side installation of graphics and this is just as good as any place to post it again for others seeking help.
How to install pipe side decals
**I know there is already 5,000 posts on this and I am sorry, I just couldn't find what I was looking for**
I am looking to but a restyled plastics kit for my 05 yz250, and getting a graphics kit from DeCal works put on it. I know there are 5+ types of restyle kit brands, and decal works said to get the polisport, and then select the '06 yz when I am getting graphics for it. my main question is, is my only option to get a restyle kit that makes it look like a '15? or is the '15 look the same as say a '18 look.
and can someone just help me confirm that the current plastics I have on are stock/non restyle
thanks in advanced, I know this subject gets beat into the ground.
On my last bike I used Motocal to design graphics online. They turned out great but I didn't like the online aesthetics. I felt like I should have an online account that would give me better flex for my designs library. Not to mention the methods to get the design the way I wanted was at time archaic. If you have experience with other online DIY graphics engines, I'd like to learn of them.
Hey guys i recently picked up a 1983 cr80r I stripped the whole bike down to the frame to find a couple of issues but when i went online to find parts i needed i looked at plastics and couldn't find anything anywhere i want them to be Nos OEM or a very close replica wondering if anyone knows where i could source some from.
I just received a set of new graphics for my KTM 300. There are no instructions at all, I guess we are supposed to know how to do it.
These look to have a paper backing that you can peal off and then stick on the plastic body panels (sidecover, ec.)
I assume I want to clean the body panels to let the sticky stuff get a good bit. What is a good chemical to use? Contact cleaner? brake cleaner? Acetone? ivory soap?
Any tips and tricks to get a flat graphic to go on smoothly on a compound curved body panel?
