    I'd consider it if they had a design that covered the existing scuffs and scratches!

    I used one of their kits on my F800ST. Good quality stuff, fit well and durable as OEM.

    I 'm thinking of doing this. How hard was the install? Did you use the wet or dry method? Thanks.

    I live in a small town and the guys at the local sign shop installed them for free. I figure if they were hard to install they would have charged me something. (I offered to at least get them some coffees, but they turned me down.)

    This is how it turned out:

    I had tis done on my gray '07 F800ST with the help of my sister [the sign painter]. It is an improvement in looks.

    It's was actually pretty easy. I used all of the recommeded products they sell and it worked great. Put the reflectors on the back of my saddlebags using the same products, so don't throw away.

    I applied the graphic kit today

    I applied mine yesterday. I used the wet method and it wasn't as intimidating as I first thought. It took under two hours to do the whole bike. I know that it's not common to mess with the look of BMW's but I like the look. The hardest decision was what color to pick to compliment my sand beige bike. I finally chose a metallic burgundy. But I purchased 25 samples before I made up my mind.
