Anybody have any experience with this stuff? I want to try it out on  the GRiSO's front fender.

Looks good to me....Sort of like a prefabricated carbon fiber swirl kit in one (and for the completely hopeless - like me).

I was only looking at some swirl projects on youtube the other night, as I am interested in buying a track day bike. There was a bike locally with all the fairing panels still in grey undercoat,

I could do the whole bike in this and make it look like I went out and spent a small fortune on aftermarket kit.

Not sure about my white GRiSO, I think it looks best left alone. If I had a black GRiSO or an SE I could see myself wanting to go crazy with this stuff. It be a bit like getting a tattoo....you get one and then you want another, the hardest decision seems to be knowing when to stop.

Cheers Taz

I am equally hopeless with this kind of stuff. But I want to do the crappy black plastic fender on my Black Devil. I'm going to purchase the smallest amount I can order. I may post some pictures or a vid if it actually works. I've seen a few other videos and it seems to mimic carbon fibre pretty well.

It would look great on the fender.  I haven't used it, but I've seen it done.  Typical defects are having the material wrinkle or fold during application.  Not sure how difficult it is to remove and re-do.  BTW, "Paint by Steve" offers this for his custom helmet graphics over in the west valley.  I think he does other parts, too.

OPC that's good to know. I  may skip the diy and see if Paint by  Steve can help me with the fender.
Thanks

Hi,

I have it done to a few parts of my G12.
Looks awesome...

The fly screen along with a paint job.

The valve covers, injector protectors and extrafenda.
You can buy a real carbon extrafenda, but now it's looks exact the same as the rest.

Looks are okay...?

I  like real carbon fibre , the coverings can look just as good almost .. AD B bike looks very nice  but its like comparing a  zircon with a diamond , they both look great but the real thing is what it should be not a facsimile ..
Cosmetics are a real personal thing though, so I will bow to those that do what they will do.
just saying ..... Cool

The price difference with special made real carbon products, is equal in that way...
But that's your own choice.
In any way, special made in real carbon is not my choice.
I don't mind, my bike isn't 0,2417 kg lighter...  clown

Glad I didn't dip my wheels for the carbon look, the real thing is 20lbs lighter. geek

The rest in carbon fiber will not gain that much in weight.
But will cost you a leg or ????
$$$$$$$$$$
Which I don't want to spend for the looks (now)... clown

I had to spent also "a bit" on a new fotocamera+lenses...  Viva la Fiesta
