Like everything, there is a certain technique. My guy said that these cannot be put on with the "wet" method, where you spray a mixture of water with a drop of soap that allows you to align the decal, squeegee it to remove bubbles and simply let dry. These need to be applied with a heat gun/hair dryer "dry", which is a bit trickier to get perfect. Also, they are cut to go on race fairings so my guy also used a razor to trim the fit so they look perfect. If you're not comfortable with all of that, then I suggest seeking a professional.

Also, carbonworld.de (the same guys that have the eBay auctions) offer a 10% discount and free shipping (from Germany, even) with this coupon code: 986532E

Check your prices with this coupon against the eBay auction prices, it usually is cheaper to order direct from them. I've ordered 4 different times from them, takes about 2 weeks to arrive to Florida. Plus, their selection is much bigger than just what they have on eBay.

Instead of an SL, I think I'll wait a couple years and just buy one of the 1199s raced in WSBK, put a plate and some stock bodywork back on and use it as a weekend bike.

Congrats!

I've got to ask, aren't you a bit concerned about spares if you're racing an SL? Or are you already going with alternate pieces like the Motoholder subframe, rearsets, etc.?

Jeff I agree its probably a stupid idea but what the hell! I didnt buy it to look at it. It's basically a useless street bike so why not ride it and go 96% instead of 110%! Mine wont have any stock parts on it by the time it hits the track so I am not too worrried.
Thanks from reganc and JeffD
