Plasti-Dip.

Has anyone else used this product. I was looking for a cheap alternative to change the look of the YZF and came across this product. Several memebers of the board thumpertalk.com had used it and the reviews were positive. I started last night with the disassemble and masking. Today painted and unmasked, reassembled. I think it came out well and I LOVE the new look. If I throw some rim tape it will match the R1...j/k

Any opinions on the product?

The good news is if you don't like it it just peels off. I have to say though, It appears to be pretty good. We will find out this Sun at the track though.

Used it on my track bike. Ended up putting about 4 coats on and it peels pretty easily. Like you said though, VERY easy to repaint since you just peel it off and redo a different paint job.

There was a thread here awhile back where someone was using it on the tank (may have been the above poster). Everyone agrees that it looks good and does a good job but it does peel off fairly easy. Good prepwork on the surface is a must.
