My decals are peeling! But they were crappy eBay ones and the heat from the engine is curling them. New plans for it once my Clear Dip and tints come in...

Wow! I haven't been around much and really slacked on my thread.  Updates:

 

So after my decals peeled I tore her down to do some touch up and get the swingarm dipped blue.  Since I had attempted to Krazy glue the decals on I tore holes in removing the bits.

I removed and hung up the swingarm, linkage and even the rear shock to dip the spring orange.

I didn't like the first blue I did so I darkened it up and resprayed.

Got it installed again.  Went ahead and did the footpegs knowing it would wear off quickly since my feet will just rub it off.

There has been a lot of discussion about the fading of the Blaze colors.  Here are some examples and a video.  You can really see the color difference under my mirrors protected from the sun. I did not respray the nose piece so you can see the difference in that and the the tank cover as well.

So with my maintenance and touch ups done it was time to take my trip. I was going on a 10 day 4000 mile+ road trip.  Just me and the bike.  I was headed to Virginia to meet up with friends and ride some fun rads up there.  It was an epic adventure that took me through 13 states and I even ran up to New York to see my dad.  It is worth the read if you want to check it out.  Here is the link to my thread about the trip!  Absolutely amazing!!

After I got home from the trip it was time to go ahead and peel the dip.  It held up fairly well and I'm actually surprised the footpegs lasted.  You can see where it rubbed.

Most of it peeled easily. I had issues in the Krazy glue spots and since I had enamel clear coated the tank and I did not have enough coats it simply would not peel.  I ended up soaking rags in xylene and with a lot of elbow grease managed to clean it all up.  Here she is all back together with only the swingarm and pegs dipped.

Here is where my story takes a wrong turn.  On November 14th I wrecked the bike when I hit a median I did not see.  Five broken ribs, torn spleen, punctured lung, broken wrist.  This is 6 weeks later and I am healing.  I can still feel the plates on my ribs and wrist and I am trying to stretch out the tendons to get range of motion in my wrist. Crazy but I got the bike back and now it's a project for stunting or maybe a track bike.  I bought a new bike for daily riding although it will be a month or two before I can ride again.
