Some things can happen if you ride a dirt bike for a long time. Your graphics can be beat or every time you travel, you get sick to look at the same old graphics. The truth is that if you do it the wrong way, it can be difficult. However, if you are willing to follow these steps, it can be a breeze.
Old Graphics Remove
If you want to simplify the process, begin by deleting old graphics. Start with plastics removal. In most cases, you must kneel and work with everything. After the plastics have been removed, you can move the graphics. It is advisable to heat them so that most of the adhesive is displayed with the graph. You can use a hair dryer or a heat pistol in this case. You should, however, be careful not to melt the graph. See https://www.ebay.com/usr/decallaboratory for more info.
Plastics Are Cleaned
When the adhesive is released, it is easy to clean. You can use a contact cleaner with a microfiber towel in this case. You must make sure that the whole adhesive plus other residues are released so that the new graphs have a clean surface.
How To Install Graphics
Typically, dirt bike graphics are printed with a vinyl support and then laminated to protect the colors from wear. Depending on the thickness and grade of the materials used, certain products of suppliers vary in application difficulty. The bike also has a lot to do with the challenge – motorcycles with complex plastic shapes can be very difficult to lay graphics. We use a lot of graphics in the shop because customers are afraid of messing it up. While we do not mind putting it on for you, 10 simple steps can facilitate that task and extend the life of the decal.
Start with a smooth surface. For the adhesive process, oil, spray polish and dust do not do well. Wash the bike thoroughly and wip the surfaces with a contact cleaner or rubber alcohol. Even new motorcycles and fresh plastics have an oily cover, always wipe them off. If the plastics are in bad shape or have deep scratches, before using graphics you may consider substituting them.
Clean your hands! Then again clean them. Even skin oils can prevent adhesive properties.
Heat or hair dryers may be used to soft old adhesives, if old decals are removed. If they leave the adhesive, you will have to make sure that everything is removed. This can be a task. Alcohol rubbing and a rag or goo-gone could help. (if you are using a product such as goo-gone, make sure the residue is wiped out).
If you need to use applicator fluid, you may use a small spray flask with a few drops of dawn dish soap if you do not have commercially available spray. Windex works as well. Use as little as possible whatever you use. If you are applying too much, it may take some time to dry and the graph will be difficult to stick. We hold the graph in the air at a distance and merge into the air to moisturize the decal if we use any spray. Another problem with sprays is that adhesives can be broken down and prevented from sticking as well as possible.
