    Full Decal set application help....is there anyone doing it?

    I have bought a complete set of bodywork decals for my 690 SM. After watching many videos showing how to do it I have decided as a first time this bike is a no-no for me. Does anyone provide this service? There are a few car decal applicators out there but seem to provide the service in-house (i.e. provide the decals and lay them down). My set is a very good quality set (3M adhesive backing) and very comprehensive. I wouldn't want to botch it. Thanks

    Get a sign writer who does sick on graphics to do it.

    Not hard really. Get a spray bottle with water and some methelated spirits in it.

    Clean and dewax the panel. Have the panel and the sticker warm. spray the panel, peel it on. The spray keeps it loose and moveable until you squeegee it out with a credit card or like, carefully.

    I used a light mist with water with a touch of detergent to allow the adhesive to be correctly positioned. You can use masking tape to set up some guidance points as well.

    Did you get that sorted? There's a guy down the road in the Hutt who did the Telefonica kit on a mates NSR. Done some clear cover on my shaped sidecovers and tank. Can't see it.
    Simon, can't remember his business name but I have a number.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?
