I've got a gray/camo special edition raptor. I was thinking about changing out the grill for a carbon fiber one and puting some different graphics on... can the decals be removed without damaging the plastic?

Do you guys know of any graphics that would go well with a dark gray raptor with a silver frame? I checked ebay and most of the graphics either wouldn't match or didn't suit my taste.

THE METHOD THAT I FOUND THAT REMOVES DECALS THE FASTEST IS PUTTING THE NOZZLE OF A PRESSURE WASHER TOO CLOSE TO THEM. I MADE THAT MISTAKE ON MINE AND TRUST ME THEY COME RIGHT OFF...

The pressure washer method works well. I did the same thing on accident with my first quad. Just remember not to spray the chain or anything else that you dont want ruined.

I agree. When the decals are removed, you can clean up the glue residue with wd-40, works like a charm.

You cant pressure wash the chain? What else cant you pressure wash? Every time I get done riding I pressure wash the whole thing real good. Just messed up my first sticker the other day but planed on redoing all them anyways so I wasnt too worried.

any seals rubber or not or any bearings and O-ring chains that you dont want to ruin you dont pressure wash

a pressure washer drives water into the smallest places that you would never think of i myself will still pressure wash them parts that its said you shouldnt but i turn the pressure back put it on the "fan" setting and hold it back a bout 3-4 feet at the least so they can get clean but not much damage will be done i then check over everything and relube the chain as soon as it drys off and before the quad moves an inch :thumbsup:

Damn, that sucks I'm sure I've messed up something b/c I spray the hell out of my chain then usually drive 5 or 6 miles to the shop before I relube. What about the A-arms I spray them pretty good to but then grease right after? oh well thanks for the info.
