don't try this at home !!! mucked up two stickers so far. going to let the professionals do this. there is a curve in the tank i can't get right...
I feel your pain, brother! I had the same outcome with an outboard engine that had gone through a fire. $125 & 2 hours later I had new decals on there that looked like crap! I took it to the local marina and bought another set. I then promptly walked over to the service department and told them to put them on. 1 week goes by and no call. So I call them and they apologize for ruining the decal and they had to order another set at their expense! The moral of the story is for me; stick to what you know and leave the rest to the professionals! Good luck and that paint looks awesome!

I hate when that happens. I had the same experience putting decals on my DT125. I just couldn't prevent that little crease in the same spot on both sides of the tank. Ugh!

I bought some custom graphics from a local sign shop several years ago. The owner was a super cool fellow that'd gotten into the trade doing race boat graphics and the expanded to all manner of vinyl signs and stuff.
He had an airplane inside doing letters on it when I arrived! LOL
Anyhow, he had me pull the bike in on his carpeted(!) showroom and proceeded to do the left side of the fairing of my Honda while I watched.
Done, he switched sides and said, "Your turn."
The next thing I knew, I was following his instructions and actually got it right. Could I do that again? Don't know, but a spray bottle of water with a single drop of lemon Joy dish soap was used to thoroughly lubricate the work area and the back of the vinyl to get it in place. As for curves like on the gas tank of the SCR, there weren't any. So, I don't know of any trick there except maybe warm the vinyl with a hair dryer to help it conform to the shape.

This is the 3-part YouTube video I followed to mess mine up. The instructions are very thorough and lead you to believe that it's easy.
