  • Decals

    Hai,

    I have a few decals that I need to place on my tank. Does anyone know of a shop/person that I can take the bike to to place 'em? I don't really want to do it myself as I hear it can be a bit too easy to screw it up

    Cheers!

        I'm sure there is some trick to doing it easily. A mate suggested soapy water on the tank before applying the sticker and that would allow you to move it around until the liquid dried underneath. I was skeptical and have never tried it but I'd be keen to hear if anyone has done it this way successfully.

          soapy water works great for placement and alignment. Then use a soft, flexible plastic blade to remove the water from underneath, so you don't end up with bubbles.

            PM BlackFZR on here.

            Tim does all the decals on my bikes and is very very good at it.
            Some say he eats sidchrome for breakfast

            Some say he only showers on even days of the week

            Some say he put an R1 motor in a coffee machine

            All we know is he's Hewie.

                  Tank ones should really be cleared over.

                            And if you do them dry, you'll get better adhesion ultimately. Decals are almost always pressure sensitive (unless they're waterslide), so you need pressure and the best way to get that is dry. If you use a proper squeegee, make sure you wrap some rag around it before you try to fit your decals or you'll scratch them and possibly have a section "grab" and stretch. Get all the air out with the first application and THEN squeegee hard to actuate the pressure sensitive adhesive.

                            Clean the area properly in this sequence... 1) Use a detergent solution to remove dirt, dust etc. 2) Use Wax and Grease Remover to get rid of polish, wax, silicones etc. 3) Clean with IPA and buff off with clean lint free rag. Then your decal will stick properly. HTH
