I put some graphics on my Clarke that were made for the stock tank. Doesn't look too bad. The bottom of the Clarke is asymmetrical from side to side.

Here is a pic:

I believe the graphics bubble do to the Tank being plastic and plastic breaths.:)

Yes the graphics will bubble due to the tank breathing. I cleaned the outside of the tank very well and let it sit empty for a couple of days before putting on the graphics. I read somewhere by doing this it allows the tank out gas completely. The graphics have stayed on well so far, but it has only been a couple of months. Make sure you buy graphics that are perforated to allow for the "breathing".

Yes, the bottom looks different on the other side. I never realized the bottom of the tank was different side to side until putting on graphics.

Gas vapors go through the tank plastic inside to out.

The irregularities between the different tank shapes and how the graphics fit them is not a noticeable if the graphics background color is the same as the tank color.

Chralis, the attention to detail on your bike is amazing. You did a great job balancing the red, grey and black. Every time you post pics I am impressed. Looks like you one of Forrest's best customers. :)

DEbi is right chralis that was an amazing looking bike, and i think i might try letting it sit so it will breath then put them on, because a nice set of plastics just makes the bike look so nice:thumbsup:
