Wrapped FZ07

Recommended Posts

ssbbmoto

My 2017 silver and black FZ wrapped with urban grey digi camo.  This was my first go at wrapping anything and it turned out better than expected.  It was so cheep and easy I am already thinking what I could do next.Screenshot_20180912-131624_Gallery.thumb.jpg.80e001a9624166c17c99bf68a90f4dc3.jpg

Looks good! I had a hard time choosing what color I wanted to do mine in. Went bright for safety reasons in Tucson. 

 

Did you wrap it on the the bike?

This is very cool!

 

I'm clueless on this topic. How does the wrapping take place? Can it be peeled off without affecting the stock finish?

My question is whether its legal or not. The registration says x color and this is something different. Will the police give you trouble if stopped?

The insurers might want to know too.

It's no different than repainting a car from that perspective. My VIN on my car says yellow, but the car is now orange. It can be annoying at times (especially since shops cannot look up the factory color), but it has never been more than an annoyance. That being said, there could be rules that I've just never bothered to read, haha.

In Greece (Europe) the vehicle's registration must match the vehicle's color.

If the registration says red and you have re-painted your vehicle, you must change your registration to reflect it. Otherwise you get a fine if discovered.
Now when it comes to vinyl wraps, the change is not permanent. The law isn't clear on what happens in this case. At least not clear to me. Do you have to report it and change the registration, or not?
Any police officers here?

Since you're thinking of what you can do next may I suggest you either paint or wrap the two silver side panels in black, they're stealing the attention the tank should be getting. Everything but the panels is subdues to a point (think sore thumb). Your choice of course. ✌️ Nice wrap job!

Looks great. How much did you end up paying for the material in the end? Was it difficult to cut and get it all lined up?

Its just tacky vinyl but the sticky side can be lifted and repositioned as much as you need.  The whole thing can easily be removed and it wont effect the stock paint.

Well my registration says silver and it still is for the most part, kinda. I dont think urban digital camo is an option on the DOL registration lol.  I should be fine the way it is, if a cop wants to harrass me it wont be because my color doesn't match my reg. exactly

I am thinking about painting them black, I agree it would look better.  I am just worried it will wear through from my leg rubbing against it and that would look ugly.  I might try some black plasti dip and see if it stays in good shape, if not just peel it off.
