carbon fiber wrap

Hi,

I've just done the fuel tank upper cover and the deflector above the headlight. Really not perfect but for my first wrap i'm pretty satisfied


Just ask myself if i do the rear side fairing or its going to be to much

Nice, looks good. I also like your garage.

I wrapped a few pieces on my FJR, been contemplating doing the GSX now. I'd love to wrap the tank black, but I've seen enough videos to know that's way beyond my skill level.

For sur the tank is hard to wrap... you can wrap it in 3 pieces, like on the edge the join is not to visible!

I might tackle it one of these days, too many projects for me to get too deep in that one that is like 95% sure to be a fail.

Looks good. I attempted to wrap some pieces on my old Speed Triple - it's harder than the pros make it look.

That looks good. I wouldn't mind just that amount above headlight done on mine. I have the chinese carbon fiber seat cover and I think between the two that might look pretty good on my bike.

I bought the carbon saddle pads. It is the site where they have the best prices.
