I think it would look good on small pieces, but not the whole bike.

Scenario:

Ask a noob question (which is not the problem).

Argue (or at least not listen to the responses) with multiple people that know something about it and agree with each other that try to answer you (which is the problem).

Get FEELINGS hurt on a sportbike forum.

Example: http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=179402

FAIL.


Hopefully were all caught up now.

The fiber looks great when installed professionally as above! Im sure some practice and mistakes would endure to try to reproduce the work above in the pictures as a novice but I do think it looks interesting. As for the forks... interesting but not sure how that would look on the top w the trees in the way.

My concern would be durability of the sticker material; would it flake off? damage by weather condition? I know vinyls can be ordered w 6yr protection... Can these sticker sheets be ordered by a sign company w the same? Wraps were a big thing in California and slowly catching on here...



As for the members giving him a hard time and apparently continue to on other threads: thanks for contributing to making MH into what has driven most members away in the last couple years: riders w a little bit of knowledge stretching what little they do know to act like a know it all to others. If you're not going to answer an honest question constructively, go on FB and fk off there. Other then being in the event section, Im reminded why myself and others dont return here regularly. You got to be me peeps...

yeah...If he thinks this has been rude....

Common sense is more of a lost art with each new day.

Hate to break it to the world, but there ARE such things as stupid questions. Feel free to ask them - but you'll have to sift through the sarcasm to find your answer.

You don't like it - move back in with your mom and hide from the real world for a few more years... then try again.

This forum is going to .

Yes, it can be done. Yes, it can last years. Yes, the over-all look is completely opinion based. No it is not the same as a sticker. Yes, it is VERY stretchy and will conform to parts (gas tank seems difficult to me though)

It will take you several tries get it right, or decide you don't have the skills. Or you get frustrated and live with wrinkles in the material.

I've wrapped with the stuff, but not carbon print. Have a few spare hands to help you out, and work the stuff carefully. Make sure to watch a bunch of vids on how to do it first.

To answer your question: No, I have not used the Carbon Wrap.

Although when done correctly and with great patience it will look better then a few scuffs along the side of a fairing as like a cover up from visual damage.

A little surprised myself on how it came out. He did use the 3M stuff which is probably one of the best products you can get and more expensive of course.

To the OP.....go for it. All you have to loose is a few bucks.
