crispy designs does some good work. He did custom dakar rally number plates and the flag with my name and blood type for the upper fairings like on meoni's 950. Fit perfect, great customer service, and a high quality, thick decal. Anything else I get done will be through him.

I have done dirtbike kits before. Always a PITA. What would be the easy way to do graphics this big? Water with a little soap... Or water with alcohol mix (in the water not in you ).

spray soapy water on the back of the graphics and on bike and then you can slide into place and then wipe out all the water and air bubbles with a credit card, thats how the pros do it...

cheers, Bill..

Well, I stripped off the old graphics and applied new. (I have probably done about 20 graphic kits in 30 yrs of riding.) The new graphics looked perfect at first. Unfortunately, the new vinyl graphics eventually bubbled too. Badly. It seems to be caused by fuel vapors coming through the tank on the 950s.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks!

If I were racing that might look cool, but to ride down the street every day....meh. How about something a little more "every day".

The fix on dirt bike graphics was to make the graphics with many small holes. That way the vapor can exit and if a bubble forms, you can work it out easily.

How about something like the KRIEGA but with a real faint ADVENTURE.

Sadly I think you'll find Christian decided to call it a day last year after getting lots of corporate S***E from KTM and Red Bull over copyright on designs. Total wankers! Be delighted to hear if he's back into this though as he did some stunning graphics for me on my old 990 Adv.

I got sick enough of the bubbles that I gave this carbon fiber stuff a try. It looks great and not a bubble in sight after about 3 months. There are channels in the back that must vent the trapped vapors.

He replied to an email I wrote a couple-of months ago. Said he wasn't doing custom graphics for at least a while, too busy with other work. :/
