I WAS going to buy the front and rear white boards from a place in Australia called Cut Graphix (see link) to stop any chips on the front mainly, but at 75 for the pair I am am put off by these reviews of vinyl fitting !!!

If the mudguard stripe is a pig to fit god knows what the fairing and tail unit will be like and at 75 it is a lot of money to go in the bin.

Motographix should hurry up and release their gel versions at least they do not get bubbles in.

If you do get a few air bubbles don't give up hope as I noticed now they have all but disappeared.

As a tip, you can always stick a pin in the air bubbles to get rid of them, then press down to seal the sticker. If you're careful you won't see the hole.

That's what I did on some of them. Comes from doing too much wallpapering.

I found that it was easier using a spray with a little washing up liquid in the water and wetting the area, the board could then be fixed in place then flattened in place by hand stretching it into place without creases, it does work, first time for me and no creases.
