Maybe a pinhole to let the air out and to put some moisture inside. Seal down tight with a credit card or similar. That's worked for me on decals.

Thanks

Thanks again for the fast shipping, SpeedStar. Just received the headlight masks and triple clamp protectors, and hopefully the masks will make the bike look, umm, less ugly!

Jamie, the bubble should lay down flat as perfectstranger pointed out with a pin hole. You could also try heating with a blow dryer and working the bubble with a cloth covered card to keep from scratching the surface to the edge. Once the air is out it should lay flat. Let me know how it goes.

Nice work.

Thanks Devin for the quick turnaround. I pasted these on in 25 minutes. DOUSED them in the alcohol solution. No bubbles, no problems, and was even able to push them around a couple mm to line them up well.

Thanks again for the support. These come with complete instructions detailing how to use alcohol to get them on and lined up as Walshy points out.

All parts still available!

Headlight Masks

Received the masks within a few days of ordering and they went on without a hitch. The water & alcohol solution that was recommended in the directions worked perfectly. Took 20 minutes start to finish.

Here's a few shots of the wee wearing her new masks. Not sure whether to keep the headlight covers on or off. I remember reading somewhere just how tough the stock headlight plastic is and that extra protection wasn't necessary. I already bought them last year so they might stay on. Hmmmm.

Masks without covers


Masks with covers


The "sans fairing decals" look

Fast transaction

Contacted SpeedStar on Monday for the extended frame protectors in CL and the standard triple clamp protectors. They were posted on Tuesday, on Friday I received them and today, Saturday, they are on my Wee! Isn't that what we call a fast transaction? All the way from San Diego to Norway!

And they are smashing! All well packed with good instructions on how to attach. I think they really look good!

Thanks for your outstanding products, Devin

Good product!

I ordered a pair of headlight masks and frame guards from SpeedStar - great service. I moved very recently and Devin overnighted my parts to me prior to me indicating my new address. Despite the 3 hour time difference between me (Tennessee) and him (California) he was able/willing to call Fedex and get the package re-routed to me without issue.

If you follow the instructions, the guards go on easy and look good. After putting mine on, my dad is starting to eye a pair of headlight masks for his! Would recommend.

Speedstar: Do you still have the completely opaque masks? Mine were the somewhat translucent style.

My parts are here.

Ordered these Tuesday, its now Thursday morning and they are here already. That is truly outstanding customer service Devin! Now to get them on. Do I need to use the alcohol spray with all the guards?

Great items, awesome service.

These went on super quick thanks to Devin's great instructions. At first I did not realize that there were instructions in every envelope that held each separate parts, hence my question about but they are now on, look great and more importantly are a great way to save your bike's exterior bits from the usual damage. Thanks again!

great product!
ideal design would would be complete black out for the non light part above on the strom following the light curve above. i only used the top part and wished it was a full black out for the pointy areas above. the 2012 shape nails it and is a template.
