Buyer’s Guide to Dirt Bike Graphics

Dirt bike graphics have an important functional role but they also freshen up the overall look of your dirt bike.

Luckily, there are many companies making custom dirt bike graphics and designs to choose from when updating your graphics. They are widely available and usually relatively cheap and easy to install by yourself.

Many dirt bike owners buy and replace the plastics and graphics on their new dirt bikes and store them for later. When it’s time to sell, changing back to factory plastics and graphics usually helps to sell the bike faster.

In this post, we will discuss the following topics:

What Are Dirt Bike Graphics?

Dirt bike graphics kits are the thick stickers or decals that are installed on top of the dirt bike plastics. They are model specific sets that are designed to fit the exact year and model of your dirt bike.

There are several types of dirt bike graphics kits available in a wide variety of colors, designs, and sizes. Some cover only a portion of the plastics and some contain decals for the entire dirt bike.

For example, full sticker sets include specific ready-cut stickers or decals for the front and rear fender, front fork deflectors or protectors, both side panels, and air box cover, as well as the front number plate.

In some sticker sets, you can customize the number plates on the side and front of the dirt bike with your name and or number to make them more personal.

How Are Dirt Bike Graphics Made?

Dirt bike graphics are typically manufactured by laser cutting vinyl sheets into predesigned layouts and designs. The vinyl is by far the most common material.

Dirt bike graphics vary in design as well as in thickness and finish.

The available dirt bike graphic material thicknesses typically vary between:

  • Lightweight or thin: 12 mil or 300 microns (micrometers)
  • Medium: 16 mil or 400 microns
  • Heavy: 21 mil or 533 microns
  • Very heavy: 32 mil or 812 microns

Generally speaking, the thicker the graphics kit vinyl material used is, the more expensive and wear resistant the graphics are but also more difficult to install.

The vinyl and the graphics are also made in matte or gloss finish and some graphics or decals may be perforated. An example of the perforated graphics is the graphics used around the tank and the radiator shrouds. The perforation helps preventing bubbles and allow gas fumes to dissipate better.

How Do the Graphics Affect Your Dirt Bike?

Besides the most obvious function of making your dirt bike look cool, the graphics have also several important practical and functional roles.

Now, let’s take a closer look at how graphics can serve your dirt bike.

1. Dirt Bike Graphics Protect the Dirt Bike From Wear

One of the main functional roles of dirt bike graphics is the added protection against the wear and tear of the dirt bike plastics as well as some painted parts and the frame. Especially the thick graphics will protect the plastics against scratches and other smaller scuffs, dings, and cuts.

The front forks tubes, rear swingarm, and other parts can also be protected with correctly installed and positioned thick graphics material. You can also buy transparent sheets of protective vinyl to add protection to areas prone to wear and tear.

2. Graphics Modify Friction in Connection Points With the Rider

Another important functional role of the graphics is to control the friction in all contact points with the rider.

You may have noticed that some riders add abrasive stickers on their dirt bikes, usually near where boots contact the dirt bike frame. This is to add friction, which makes it easier to keep the correct riding position.

Additionally, some riders may prefer smooth graphics kits around the tank and the radiator shroud area, whereas some may prefer more sticky or abrasive graphics set. The former reduces friction and increases the sliding of the rider on the bike and the latter the opposite.

This is a personal preference, but you should be aware that the type and finish of the graphics can be used to alter friction around the dirt bike.

3. Graphics Prevent Dirt and Mud Buildup on the Plastics

The graphics generally help to drop any dirt buildup around the dirt bike. Furthermore, the plastics are typically much more rough in finish and tend to gather dust and debris. The smooth finish in graphics and the vinyl materials used effectively shake most of the dirt buildup and help with keeping your dirt bike cleaner and lighter.

You can also use different style plastic protection and conditioning sprays to make the plastics and graphics more dirt proof. These sprays are similar to the materials car dealers use to make the car tires look like new.

4. Dirt Bike Graphics Protect the Plastics From the Sun’s UV Radiation

The UV radiation from the sun eats up plastic like nothing else. The graphics can help to protect the plastics from direct sunlight and thus extending the plastic’s lifespan. This is because the sun’s UV radiation breaks down the plastics slowly making them brittle.

What Is Included in Different Dirt Bike Graphics Kits?

There are several different kind of dirt bike graphic kits available in a variety of styles, shapes, and colors.

If your plan is to change to a new plastics kit or renew all graphics, naturally you need to buy a full graphics kit. However, you can also buy smaller sets to replace only certain parts or sections on the dirt bike.

Let’s look at the available options next.

Full Graphics Kits for Dirt Bikes

A full kit includes decals and stickers that cover all of the plastics in a dirt bike.

Most full kits include stickers that will cover the front and rear fender, front fork deflectors, front fork tubes, swingarm sides, both side panels, and air box cover, plus the front number plate.

Trim Graphics Kits

A trim graphics kit is a partial kit that includes decals for both the front and rear fender, fork tubes, and fork deflectors.

Radiator Shroud Graphics Kits

Like the name implies, a radiator shroud graphics kit includes the sticker set that covers the plastics around the tank and the radiator shrouds.

Number Plate Graphics Kits

A dirt bike number plate graphics kit includes the front number plate and sometimes also the side number plate. They can be just backgrounds or include your race number and/or name.

5 Tips for Selecting the Best Graphics Kit for You

When choosing the correct graphics kit, there are few important things to consider. Below, we compiled a list of things that you should pay attention to when selecting the best dirt bike graphics.

1. Check the Material Thickness

Graphics are made in different thicknesses and materials. And the truth is that cheap, thin stickers will not last more than few rides. The normal stickers that you get when you buy new gear or bike parts are not made of the material that will last in dirt bike riding. They are mostly decorative and sure can be used in addition to the base graphics set.

A good graphics kit uses a material thickness of 16 mil (400 microns) or more. Anything below the 16-mil thickness means that the graphics are cheaper and will not last as long as the thicker ones. The 16-mil thickness is still considered as a medium thickness for a graphics kit.

The functional purpose of the graphics kit is to protect the plastics from scratches and help with controlling the friction between the rider and the dirt bike surfaces. If the material is not thick enough, this purpose will not be fulfilled.

2. Verify the Graphics Kit Fitment for Your Dirt Bike Model

Make sure that the dirt bike graphics kit is specifically designed for the make and year model of your dirt bike. The dirt bike submodels have small differences, which makes the plastics fit differently. This affects how the graphics are laid out and cut to match the plastics mounting points, size, and contours.

For example, ordering a XC vs XCW graphics kit for KTM means that you get different front plate and swingarm stickers and you also would not get number plate decals with the latter one.

3. You Can Mix and Match Graphics Kits

If you don’t find a graphics kit to your liking, you can mix and match several graphics kits to create cool and unique dirt bike graphics designs.

The available kits we mentioned previously can be used to personalize the dirt bike to your liking or replace only the worn-out graphics on your dirt bike.

4. Design Your Own Custom Dirt Bike Graphics Kit

For a full custom look, go for graphics kits that you can alter or redesign by yourself. Many of the vinyl graphics companies allow you to at least modify or completely design your personal graphics kits.

5. Read Reviews

Check reviews for wear and tear, installation easiness, and fitment. Reviews usually help determine the overall quality of the set. If you cannot find the material thickness, ask first. If unsure, don’t buy it.

New Graphic Kits for Your Dirt Bike

All right, so you’ve found a graphics or decal kit for your dirt bike that you like. Before you can install the new graphics, you first need to remove the old ones, clean the plastics, and restore any worn-out plastics.

The whole process will take approximately 4 to 6 hours. It sounds a lot but it will definitely be worth it since your dirt bike will look like new afterwards! Also, you can divide the installation process into two parts if needed: you can remove the dirt bike graphics on the first day and then install the new dirt bike graphics the next day.

Next, let’s take a closer look at what is involved in installing the new graphics kit onto your dirt bike.

How To Remove Dirt Bike Graphics

Removing the old dirt bike graphics or decals from the plastics involves applying heat to remove the graphics and wiping any residual glue with WD40 or rubbing alcohol. Removing the old graphics and cleaning the plastics will take about 2 to 3 hours in total.

Here are step-by-step instructions for removing dirt bike graphics:

1. Remove the Plastics From the Dirt Bike

It is usually much easier to remove the old graphics and install new ones if you have the plastic parts in your hands rather than installed on the dirt bike. If you replace only few stickers or few graphics, it may make sense to leave the plastics on.

2. Apply Heat and Peel Off the Old Dirt Bike Graphics Slowly

Heat the old graphics with either a heat gun or a hair dryer. This makes the glue softer and makes it easier to remove the stickers and graphics from the plastics.

Make sure not to overheat! The graphics need to be warm but not too hot to touch. Slowly heat the entire area evenly.

Next, use a picker tool or a thin plastic strip or a screwdriver to pick one of the edges loose. Then start to peel the old graphics off. Keep applying heat until the glue is soft and the sticker is peeling easily off the plastics.

3. Remove Any Residual Glue

Once the decals, stickers, or graphics are peeled off the plastics, you can clean off any residual glue with rubbing alcohol or WD40. It seems like the WD40 works best and needs only small amounts to effectively clean the glue off.

Finally, finish by using mild soapy water to wash off any dirt band residue to ensure new stickers will adhere well. You can use dishwashing liquid or similar mild detergents.

How To Install New Dirt Bike Graphics

Installing dirt bike graphics onto your dirt bike is a lot of fun. The new graphics will make the dirt bike look like new and the entire process is actually quite easy.

The installation process includes cleaning the plastics, restoring any worn-out plastics, and installing new graphics with soapy water. It will take around 2 to 3 hours to install dirt bike graphics.

Next, we will explain what tools you will need and the steps involved in installing graphics kit onto your dirt bike.

Tools Needed for Installing Dirt Bike Graphics

Installing graphics kits is simple. You will need an installation kit, a felt squeegee, a spray bottle, and a heat gun or a hair dryer for the installation process. The installation kit includes few plastic tools that help to push and stretch the thicker graphics in place.

Below, you can find the tools that we recommend for an easy graphics installation. Please note that some kits may come with the felt tip squeegee and you don’t need to buy it separately.

Here are step-by-step instructions for installing new dirt bike graphics:

1. Remove the Plastics From the Dirt Bike

Assuming you already removed the old graphics, you should have the plastics at hand and ready for the installing of the new graphics. If not, remove the plastics from the dirt bike and set them on a table top for cleaning.

2. Clean Plastics Well With Soap and Water

In order for the new graphics to adhere well to the plastics, they need to be clean, dust free, and free from any old glue residue and other chemicals.

If you have any old glue remaining on the plastics, wipe it off with a WD40 or rubbing alcohol. Next, wash the plastic parts with mild soapy water and rinse well. This is important as any residue will cause issues later.

3. Restore Old Worn-Out Plastics if Needed

If your plastics are worn-out but not broken or cracked, you can restore them to make them look close to new again. And when you install new graphics, they change the look of the plastics also. Fix any cracks or broken parts by using safety wire or zip ties if you choose not to replace the broken parts.

To restore the plastics and to make sure the new decals will adhere well, you need to sand them down with an abrasive sand paper and use plastic restorer solutions. If the plastics are faded, you can find detailed instructions for how to restore faded plastics later in this post.

Sand down the scuffed, scratched, and discolored areas into a smooth and even surface. Cover any decal areas so that the new decals will adhere properly. Use the silicone detailer or plastic renew solutions to restore the shiny new like look and feel. Next, you can continue the decal installation.

4. Prepare a Soapy Water Solution Into a Spray Bottle

We recommend using a wet installation method using soapy water and a squeegee. This ensures that you can insert and move the decals around for perfect positioning. This method is also very forgiving and a great way to learn how to install new graphics.

Get a spray bottle and fill it with warm water. Add a small amount of soap, about a tablespoon to half a gallon is enough.

5. Install the New Dirt Bike Graphics Using Soapy Water

Spray the plastics with soapy water. Carefully peel off about 50% of the backing paper from the graphics without touching the sticky side with glue.

Holding the decal from the area that still has the backing, place the sticker over the wet and soapy plastics, starting from the middle. Slide the decal in place. It should slide well over the soapy water. If not, add more soapy water.

Next, use the squeegee. Start from the center of the decal and slowly work your way towards the edges. Use the squeegee to push the soapy water away towards the edges. This will make the glue stick to the plastic. Slowly peel off any remaining paper backing while making sure to use the squeegee to avoid forming any air bubbles.

Few tips for installing the dirt bike graphics:

  • If you experience any air bubbles, spray water under the decal glue side and peel back the area with air bubbles. Until the glue sets, you have few minutes to set the decal correctly.
  • If at the end you still have air bubbles, you can use a pick or a needle and puncture the air bubble. Then use the squeegee to smooth it out.
  • In areas, where the decal needs to go around sharp turns or fit the contours of the plastics, applying mild heat with a hair dryer or heat gun will make miracles. The vinyl will be more workable with a little bit of heat and it makes it easier to work around the tough spots. Don’t dry the soapy water with the heat gun and make sure to keep it wet until you use the squeegee to finish it off to the correct position.
  • Try not to stretch the vinyl decals when you remove the backing paper or when installing. The vinyl is carefully cut to fit the plastics and pulling too much will stretch it.

6. Finish the Graphics Installation

After you have correctly positioned the decal in place and you have no air bubbles left, use the squeegee to make sure no water is left under the decals. Again, start working from the center towards to the sides of the decals.

Push any remaining soap water out and wipe off any moisture with a clean cloth. Continue the installation with the next decal and once complete, install the plastics back onto your dirt bike.

How To Take Care of Your New Dirt Bike Graphics Kit

Over some time, the UV radiation from the sun will cause the vinyl to lose color and deteriorate. This is because the ultraviolet rays are able to break down the dye used to color the vinyl.

When the vinyl is aging, sometimes it starts looking like grayed out, faded, or chalk like. This is a normal oxidation process that happens when the vinyl is aging. But luckily there are several ways to extend the graphics and vinyl life span.

You can use a vinyl restoration products that will restore the colors close to the originals. These products will also help to protect the vinyl from future UV radiation and wear.

How To Restore Faded Graphics on a Dirt Bike

Using vinyl restoration products, restoring faded dirt bike graphics is actually quite easy.

Let’s take a closer look at the steps involved in the process.

1. Wash and Air Dry the Dirt Bike

Wash the dirt bike thoroughly with soapy water. Let it air dry and wipe off any remaining water with a clean cloth.

2. Use Rubbing Alcohol to Degrease the Decals

The surface of the decals needs to be clean of any soap residue and grease. So use rubbing alcohol to wipe the decals clean. Use only small amounts and only on the surface avoiding the edges so that you will not accidentally peel off the decals.

3. Apply the Vinyl Restoration Solution

Apply the restoration solution of your choice on the decals with a clean cloth by following the product specific instructions.

How To Choose Your Race Number for Dirt Bike Graphics

If you are a beginner rider and haven’t yet used a race number, let’s discuss some of the principles and meanings behind the numbers on a dirt bike.

The front plate, side plate, and jersey race numbers are normally related to dirt bike racing. They are typically a number between 1 and 999, sometimes combined with a small letter. These numbers are usually included in the full dirt bike graphics kits and can be personalized.

These race numbers are typically assigned to you during the first race you attend. Some riders stick with the first number and drop the third and second digit as they level up in classes.

Generally speaking, the higher the number is, the lower the rider is in classes and achievements in terms of race results. For example, the best riders in the world have numbers between 1 and 9 and these numbers are usually assigned based on the previous season’s overall standings and overall career performance.

Now, how about amateur riders? How do we mortals pick a race number?

Join a race. If you wish to have a race number in your dirt bike and don’t just want to pick a random number, attend a race! They will assign you a number, which is most likely going to be a three-digit number. This way your number will have a meaning and you will appreciate it more. Once you progress and keep racing, you can drop the tail digit for a shorter two-digit number.

Some say that three-digit numbers represent beginner riders, higher two-digit numbers are A riders and low two-digit or one-digit numbers are for the pro-level riders. This is a general guideline.

Conclusions

Dirt bike graphics are a great way to personalize your dirt bike and stand out from the crowd. The custom graphics for fort bikes are easy to install, last a long time, and help to protect your dirt bike.

While most people buy graphics just to make the dirt bike look cool, it is important to keep in mind how the graphics affect the dirt bike riding performance and plastics durability.

Keep your dirt bike looking fresh!
