Buy another set of plastics and graphics , put the good set on when your bike is sitting in the garage so it can look good there , swap it over for ridding . My 08 looks like its 5 years old not because its abused or not maintaned . I use it for is intended purpose ridding not bike shows .

hah, yeah graphics don't last long for me or the faster friends of mine.

And if you have knee braces they like to first eat a hole through ur pants then chew ur shourds.

yer i got the asterisk knee braces, the pants are ok but.

shrouds arnt too bad, its minaly just the air box and thats were the bott is contacting, and a bit of the number board.

i guess ill just be taping them up every ride:foul: haha

but it is strange how some faster riding buddys of mine dont get it at all?

Get some stomp grip for your air box. I always use it and have awsome grip and seem's fairly durable.

My graphics won't stay on my tank (newer yz 250 smoker) for more than 4 rides. My knee's shred them right off..... Don't feel bad!!

I put brand new OEM style Factory Effex graphics on my KX450F a while ago, Both sides rolled up and peeled off within 5 hours of riding...I ended up just cutting them out where my knees contact the shroud...My airbox graphics never last long either...
