Heat gun or hair dryer, Isopropyl alcohol, squeegee, water spray bottle, liquid soap.
All items should be inspected for defects or damage and "dry fitted" prior to being installed. Installation instructions provided should be followed completely. We recommend that all items be professionally installed. Any concern or question as to fit or installation should be brought to our attention. We provide technical support during our normal business hours to help with installations. All reasonable attempts should be made for proper installation before making a return claim. It is our sole discretion to authorize returns for credit or exchange.
- Warm indoor location, 75 degrees or warmer
- Remove stock graphics. Clean the surface completely with Isopropyl alcohol or contact cleaner to remove residual adhesive. DO NOT USE acetone or solvent based cleaners.
- The surface must be clean. If there are any deep scratches with burs that extrude from the surface, try scrapping or sanding them flush.
- Using a spray bottle, add 5-6 drops of liquid soap to 16 ounces of water.
- Spray this solution onto the plastic surface and then onto the adhesive side of the decal.
- Place the wet/adhesive side of the decal onto the surface lightly to allow it to float into place.
- Using a squeegee or similar tool work the solution from between the decal and the surface. Take extra care to push all of the water out while leaving no bubbles.
- Use a hot hair dryer in the problem area to heat up the decal and make it more pliable and easier to manipulate. Be careful not to scorch the decals.
- Allow the graphic to stand for 24 hours before riding.
- Perforated tank decals. We purposely made the tank decals perforated (with little holes) for all vehicle with a plastic gas tank to minimize gas fume blistering. Graphics that are installed directly onto plastic fuel tanks may bubble or blister. This is perfectly normal and unavoidable due to the fuel vapor that permeates through plastic fuel tanks. The gasoline molecular structure in the liquid form is larger than in the gas vapor form. Keeping your plastic fuel tank full will help minimize the vapor from penetrating through the plastic tank wall.
