    Replacing a Graphic

    I'm replacing a graphic on a 2014 FX SVHO this weekend if I'm not riding. Its on the front cover left side #F3J-U417-30-00. Any tricks to getting it on straight. Got a bad blemish on the old one and for $4.38 I thought I would replace this so I don't have to look at it. Not sure if I like them on there to start with but for now I'll keep it the same without the CG stuff.

    Put a few drops of dishwashing liquid and a cup of water in a spray bottle.
    Spray liberally where decal is to go. Set decal. The soap will allow you to move and set just right. Once in position, take a credit card or similar shaped piece of plastic with a good edge and squeegee the liquid from center of graphic to edges to rid. Like putting screen saver on cellphone or ipad.

    Straight Windex and apply liberally to surface of ski as well as adhesive side of decal. Do not use soap.

    CCW I was wondering about the soap. Got the left side decal today. $3.78. They would not take the right side one back. I guess when I told them #F3J-U417(DEE)-30-00 they heard EEE. Yamaha matched the price I could find online. Then an employee discount to $3.78.
    I think i'll practice somewhere with the right side decal since I have it before installing the left one.

    Ok I did the CCW advice and it worked perfectly. Even allowed me to lift one side up slightly to squeeze a bubble out before it adhered. Thanks CCW. Damn thing sure did look good with it off though.

    Is this the best way to do this? CCW gave a reply that I used that didn't show up in my search function.
