Graphics Fitting Guide.
This should give you a few pointers to get you going in the right direction to fitting your kit.
PLEASE REMEMBER THE VINYL WE USE TO MAKE YOUR KIT IS HEAT AND PRESSURE ACTIVATED, THIS MEANS , UNTIL
IT IS HEATED AND PRESSURE APPLIED IT IS NOT SET CORRECTLY . PLEASE USE A HEAT GUN OR HAIR DRYER WHEN FITTING
ALSO DO NOT WORRY TOO MUCH IF YOU END UP WITH THE ODD BUBBLE IN THE KIT, THESE WILL COME OUT OVER THE COURSE OF THE NEXT 7 DAYS , I WOULD ADVISE YOU NOT TO POP THEM THIS JUST MAKES A POINT TO LET WATER IN , TRUST ME LEAVE THEM AND NEXT WEEK THEY WILL HAVE GONE
If you want to enhance the appearance of your motocross bike, installing custom graphics and number plate backgrounds is a simple and effective way to do so. However, it requires attention to detail and patience to avoid wrinkles, creases, and air bubbles. Before starting, make sure you have the necessary tools such as a heat gun or hair dryer, contact cleaner, a razor blade, and a clean rag. Ensure your bike is clean and take your time during installation. The following steps can help guide you through the process:
Remove the stock graphics and warning labels.
Clean all plastic surfaces with contact cleaner and a rag. Remove all old adhesive, dirt, and dust.
Clean the contact cleaner off the plastic with a soapy cleaner.
Begin installation with the farthest-forward corner, folding back a small corner of the paper backing. Lightly apply the corner that has the backing folded back and line up the rest of the graphic by looking at it. Once you get the graphic lined up correctly, press down on the sticky corner and make sure it is adhered nicely to the plastic. Then, peel the paper backing the rest of the way off.
Work on the main center section, making sure to carefully smooth the graphic to the plastic without trapping air bubbles. If you catch air beneath the graphic, carefully peel it back and redo that particular section. Periodically eyeball the upcoming portion, making sure that you are still on track to line the entire graphic up correctly.
For troublesome areas, like the curved right side panel, apply heat to the graphic to soften it up and better conform to the surface of the plastic. Be extra patient when working with these sections.
After applying the graphic and/or background, step back and inspect the surface of the graphic. Look at the surface at an angle to spot trapped air bubbles easier. If there are any trapped air bubbles, you can either puncture them with a pin or remove the graphic and redo that particular section.
