Decal/Sticker Installation guide
Decals/Stickers, such as our XT500 Replica-side cover decals, tank decals, etc. can be applied in
using the "wet method".
We recommend to proceed as follows:
1 Before processing please store the stickers spread out a few hours at room temperature.
2 The surfaces to be glued must be clean and free of grease. Stickers and surfaces should have room temperature.
3 Mix some water (about 0.5 liters) with some splashes of dishwashing liquid.
4 Moisten the surfaces to be glued abundantly with this soapy water.
5 Remove the protection film gently from the sticky side of the label and moisten the adhesive surface also
with soapy water.
6 Place the decal on the surface, but do not yet firmly press.
7 Align the label floating on the water.
8 Once the position is correct, fix the label at its centre and press out the water from the center to the outside, using e.g. a clean, soft cloth.
Remaining smaller bubbles will disappear over time by themselves, therefore please do not puncture!
9 Since the sticker is not resistant to gasoline and other solvents, we recommend to paint with clear lacquer.
