Wash your hands. It is very important to have clean hands while you are preparing surface and working with motorcycle graphics. Oily / dirty hands will reduce the ability of your dirt bike graphics to adhere.
Before you start to Install your graphics you have to remove old/OEM decals. You can use a hair dryer or heat gun to warm the old/OEM graphics for easy removal. Clean the surface with de-greasing agent. You do not want to leave any glue residue from the old graphics, oils or dirt. Your plastics should be warm before applying a graphics kit. We recommend you to keep plastics in a room with temperature more than 15°C / 60 ºF for several hours.
