hmmm that's very true... Some get fixed, but it's expensive and most won't do it themselves.

Dogger,

love the look of your new TJ graphics. Is this latest rendering a custom design or something off the shelf? I have a gen 1 im trying to update with something classic HRC like these.

I think i just answered my own question -if you had renderings done they must be originals. Next question.....i'd love to have a version of this for my gen 1. You didn't copyright this design did you? Imitation-flattery and all that!

And there is the heart of the matter - It shouldn't be expensive. Even if the rider
had the skills and specialty tools required to work on all aspects of their thumper
(most don't), the parts are expensive and many failures include expensive machine
work as well. With the advent of fuel injection and ECMs, the factories have pretty
much cut the majority of riders out of the maintenance loop now. I could understand
this level of technology if emission standards on a large scale had to be met, but we're
talking about closed course race bikes.

This sport is definitely NOT going in the right direction, IMO.


Thanks, fliwtgy!

The graphics ARE pretty much "off the shelf". TJ does a great job of working
with you within limits, to make sure everything meets your needs. The graphic
package on my 250 is the 2015 Team Honda graphics. Since it was designed
for the 2015 plastic, some additional work had to go in to getting the numbers
oriented correctly on my earlier 2009 side panels. That's why there were some
renderings involved.

As for your gen 1, it looks like the earliest CRs these graphics are available for
as a package, are the gen 3s (02-07).

The good news is Decal Works offers a semi custom package that WILL fit the
gen 1 and gives you the option to create something very similar to the Team
graphics if you want. It's licensed by Honda so all the copyright issues are
covered. Just go to the Decal website and click on the "T15" graphics, Honda,
97-99, then you can go to town.

If you do this, make sure you post pictures of the results. I'm sure everyone
would love to see them.

As far as throwback Honda decals,..I loved these Bailey graphics they made at One Industries. I think they are discontinued,...Id pay some bucks to get them in white. I inquired, but the One guys couldn't help.

Thanks a bunch, guys!

Now that I have the side panel mess sorted out, I sent a pair of Right side
panels to TJ so THEY could install the graphic. That panel has a big compound
curve that's a bear to work with. TJ offered to apply that graphic for a small
fee and I jumped at the opportunity.

Once they get that done, they will send the the whole shabang (panels and
500 graphics), back to me. It may take a while before i get all the new
graphics on the 500. It's a lot more work when you're peeling and cleaning
off old graphics before applying new ones.

I'm hoping the next pictures I post will be all the detail shots of the finished
CR250.
