Wrapped my bike in Black Vinyl for my trip...

I'm getting ready for a 3 month trip from California to the bottom of South America. Among the many mods to the bike, I wrapped it in black vinyl to protect the plastics (can peel them off when I get home) and to make it less flashy while traveling in other countries. It cost about $25 for the vinyl.

Did you have to take the plastics off to wrap them?

Yeah- I took them off, but I took a lot of things off that bike to work on it, exhaust, crash bars, wheels, forks, headlight HID wiring kit...
Pretty easy to work on, but getting the header off takes either small hands or a lot of patience, I don't have small hands...
