Bill,
On my black 950 I bought a 3M kit designed for that bike. Meaning the cut of the clear decals. Very hard finish so the plastic did not mar either. I sprayed the area to be covered down with a mixture of alcohol and water, then positioned the clear and squeegeed out the water/alcohol.
Perfect and undetectable. Completely scratch free even with my knees working against the tank for many miles.

I'm also looking for the something for the sides, clear plastic film I guess would be the best.

Here's a couple of places to look for options...

These are great but won't help where I noticed the scratches. When I removed the seat I saw the scratches where the front of the seat touches the tank, with the seat in place I don't see the scratches

I guess sand got in there and with the vibration it scratched
I'm short, what can I say, I have to keep the seat in the low position

Well, I thought I knew of a link, but turns out it is a patent on the TC. The service manual goes into detail (several pages) to try and explain how the ABS works, even changing when 2up.

In case you missed a page back......

I had the same thing. This covered the area and I may have put some excess strips on the trouble spots.
Gave up on the headlight. Too curved and I have a factory guard.

Interesting stuff. At first I thought it would never conform to the curves then it suddenly fits. Watch
the Wasp video on their sticker install. Very similar technique.

I'm using this product to line the tank where the seat rubs against it: http://www.findtape.com/shop/product...=1344&height=0

You can buy the clear plastic in any fabric store very cheap. Find a thickness you like, wet the tank and plastic, squeegy on and your done. i got mine at joann fabric store.

Chris--I talked to Lucas at tankslapper.biz, great guy. I've worked with the 3m stuff before, like Frank said--it just lays so nice against the paint, you don't even know its there. Just like he said--if you prep it right--good tips there.


As long as it's still black and not scratched to primer the sheet will cover a lot of the scratchs' appearance, do you not think?

I don't really care--BUT--you if you keep your machine in "I could sell this anytime" condition then I find it's easier to liquidate when you get a bug up your ass...and you have fewer problems--or detect them earlier. Broken window theory.

I can't wait to proof the rest of TPAT---I'm hoping no one gets to it before I can. I really had a good time this weekend. Wish you guys had been there

Thanks for all the tips and comments. Really love this place...and I ain't just sayin' that because I've had a few beers.

I has them.... in a multitude of colours.



Three easy payments.

Buy one and pay for two, and we'll throw in an extra set for free.

Chris,
I cant remember now. That was in 06. But that black bike was as good the day I sold it as the day I bought her new from Matto Cycle and I rode the piss out of it offroad. Search for it. 3M Makes the clear adhesive. Maybe try a body shop and ask.

Docking Pilot - nice to see you back here. Should we be reading anything into that?
