DEFINITIONS

STEP 1

Clean motorcycle surface to remove all dirt, debris, and wax. Dry the surface with a lint-free cloth or microfiber cloth.

STEP 2

Secure each end or corner with a piece of masking tape.

STEP 3

Apply a strip of masking tape vertically to the center of the decal, so the graphic can be applied one section at a time.

STEP 4

Remove the masking tape used in step 2. Hold down the backing paper while slowly peeling the premask away back towards the center. The vinyl will remain on the premask.

STEP 5

Cut away the backing paper with a scissor. Place the vinyl on the surface. Starting at the center, slowly make easy, overlapping vertical strokes with the squeegee. Now, remove the masking tape and peel away the backing paper on the other side of the vinyl transfer. Apply this section the same way as the other.

STEP 6

Wait 10-15 minutes to remove the premask. Starting from a corner, slowly peel away the premask directly across itself at a 180-degree angle. Carefully re-squeegee any areas that seem to lift. After the premask is off, wrap the squeegee with a microfiber cloth (to prevent scratching the vinyl) and go over the vinyl again, especially around the edges. Examine the vinyl for bubbles and prick them with a pin and squeegee the air out towards the puncture. A heat gun or hair dryer will assist in the removal of bubbles.
