Hey guys, well I just got a 2007 GYTR Raptor 700 and after 1 trip to glamis (Sand Dunes), I noticed that the graphics have already started to peel right where your inner thigh/knee straddles the seat. Has anyone else encountered this problem? I will try and get some pictures tonight, but does anyone have a remedy? I was thinking of just maybe using some super glue, only problem is, sand already got caked inside :lol: Thanks

My graphics have a layer of crud around the edges and it is lifting in spots. I think it's just the nature of the beast.

When it looks like total ass I'll put some aftermarket graphics on. For now I'm just living with it. The stock GYTR graphics look pretty good.

Well, only reason why I brang it up is because of how quickly it happend, just thought of it a bit odd, but who knows, the guys doing the assembly for $580 prob slapped it on in 20 seconds .

I would go aftermarket, but there isnt really much out there that looks as good as the silver GYTR graphics, oh well, thanks for the input.

Mine are still perfect.

What I would do is clean up the inside of the graphics ( this is only if the dealership wont help you), and reapply them with 3m emblem/trim glue which can be bought at any car store. I have used it on tons of dirtbikes over the years and it holds damn good but you have to make sure the backside of the sticker is free or sand and rocks first.

I looked at a 700 GYTR at my local dealer, and the graphics were peeling on the showroom floor. I told the sales guy, he said they would replace them under warranty.also the (700 injection) was faded on one side,i was ready to buy with cash in pocket but walked out thinking about it my old 05 yfz looks newer.....

I think Im am mostly alone on this but I HATE grapics and stickers. When I bought my 700 I rode it once or twice and I ened up tearing all the stickers off. I like how they look cleaner/smoother with no stickers. Look at all the major custom bike builders, you dont see them slappin stickers all over everything. Takes away from them mechanics of the machine IMO.
