Any tips to keep graphics sticking on plastics?

Recommended Posts

Got son new plastics and graphics. Too cold outside to ride, so they have been sitting in the house. Applied them in December, and now they are lifting up. Any tips to get them to NOT lift? Tape, super glue?

How do you prepare the plastics? My kid just stuck them on. Should they be scuffed, cleaned, and degreased?

I use acetone to clean, wipe dry then allow a few hours for residues to evaporate. When applying new graphics, use a heat gun, apply center first and work your way out with a body filler squiggi (spelling?). Take your time and you will do fine. There's also a very good thread in general dirt bike on it right now to use as reference. Also do it in a warm area, at least room temperature.
