Graphics Kit for Kawasaki 440 / 550 (1993 550 OEM Style) by PWC Graphics
Kit comes with decals for both sides. Be sure to choose your model (440 or 550) so we include the correct lettering in your kit. Installation Instructions
|Step 1 Clean the surface with denatured or rubbing alcohol. Rinse clean with fresh water then dry with a lint-free cloth.|
|Step 2 Put a piece of masking tape on each end of your vinyl transfer in the area where you plan to apply it and anchor each end to the application surface with masking tape.|
|Step 3 Estimate the center of your vinyl transfer and place two vertical lengths of masking tape to secure the vinyl transfer and create a center hinge as shown in the illustration. This step allows you to apply half of the vinyl transfer at a time.|
|Step 4 Remove the masking tape anchor from one end of your vinyl transfer and SLOWLY peel the release liner away towards the center masking hinge. Be careful not to touch the adhesive side of the vinyl transfer. Use scissors to cut away the excess release liner and discard.|
|Step 5 Hold your vinyl transfer by the application tape, careful not to touch the vinyl adhesive to the application surface until you are ready to squeegee. Beginning at the center hinge, make easy overlapping, pushing strokes with your squeegee. Remove the center hinge tape and slowly peel the remaining release liner away. Squeegee the other half of the vinyl transfer, working from the center to the edges.|
|Step 6 To remove the application tape, peel SLOWLY at a sharp (180°) angle. If the vinyl appears to be lifting, gently push the application tape in the opposite direction from which you were pulling and re-squeegee that area. If after removing the application tape, air bubbles are apparent, puncture the vinyl with a pin or needle (DO NOT USE a knife or razor blade) and squeegee out the air towards the puncture.|
Wet Application Method: Spraying a light mist of application solution onto your application surface will delay the adhesive activation between the bonding surface and vinyl transfer, resulting in a bubble-free, wrinkle-free application.
DIY Application Fluid: 1 Quart Spray Bottle filled with 3½ cups of water. Add ½ cup Isopropal (Rubbing) Alcohol & 3-4 drops Dawn Dish Soap or Johnson's Baby Shampoo
CAUTION: Wet application may delay the immediate removal of the application tape. A waiting period of up to 30 minutes may be necessary.
