Frequently Asked Questions
We stand behind our work.
Unlike other online businesses that don't even give you a phone number or address, Bikeskinz has more experience than anyone else in the industry. Since 2004 we have been the leading motorcycle wraps company on the planet and it shows. We ensure every standard is held at it's highest. We use the highest resolution graphics, the most cutting edge materials, and create the most custom looks for our customers. Bikeskinz is also a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business with an A+ rating.
Yes, this isn't like other "pre-cut" kits where your bike has to be a base color to match the graphics. The wraps aren't decal kits, they are full wraps that cover the entire body work. Your bike DOES NOT have to be painted a base color or primer color first. Each kit includes pieces for the tank, tail, upper fairings, and lower fairings ($40 additional for front fender).
How long will it last?
They are warranted by Avery against fading and peeling with certified installation for 4 years. Avery cast vinyl has been known to last longer than 10 years when taken care of.
Will it come off if I pressure wash it?
These DO NOT have a tendency to peel off from pressure washing like decal kits. There are limited edges or overlaps along the side of the body work because it is covered as one piece.
Does it look like paint?
Bikeskinz wraps are printed on Avery MPI 1105, the next generation of SuperCast wrapping films. This offers the thinnest material which makes it easier to conform to curves and also provides the highest gloss possible on vinyl graphics. The quality of the print and shine could be compared to clear coated paint. These can also be special ordered in a matte finish upon request.
Can I order in matte finish?
Yes, Bikeskinz is now shipping orders in matte finish upon request.
How does the wrap conform around tight curves?
The material is very thin and stretches very easily, however it does take a little bit of pulling to conform to curves. The material is also engineered to have a low retention of "memory" which allows it to conform to body work and stay when pressed into air ducts, etc. Also the kit comes in sections which allow relief areas for the tail and gas tank. For instance the tank is made up of one top piece and two side pieces which is ideal for fitting shapes with a very tight radius.
How easy is it to install?
With a little patience after watching our install videos, you and a friend should be able to handle it in less than one weekend. Click to view the Installation page. Don't forget, these wraps stretch to conform to curves. The product wouldn't even work if it was like the normal thick vinyl you get for dash kits, or decals.
What if I mess up on the install?
If a customer damages one panel, BikeSkinz will let you reorder individual pieces at a reduced price. Remember, we want your bike to look good, and tell people about us.
How do I find someone or a company locally to professionally install the wrap?
The easiest way to find someone is to search online or the Yellow Pages for vinyl sign shops. Most of the time if they do not install wraps, they will be able to direct you to another shop that does. In most larger cities you should be able to find a shop that specializes in installing auto wraps. You'll want to get a couple quotes first and a guarantee on the work. Most installers will charge $350+ dollars for the installation.
