Ill have to see how it finishes out.. I have not looked at any videos, but the idea seems pretty straightforward. I always worry about small air bubbles with these types of things.. I usually can't seem to get a 100% clear installation with no bubbles.
The basic method is to cling the center of the pattern down with the scraper. Then on one side, cling one of the edges down and scrap all bubbles out to the other side while applying soap concoction liberally. Fasten the end and then start on the other side.
Many of the video's look like a magic show at first, but some of them go through pain-staking detail to get the idea across. Cars seem hard due to the size of the material and surface detailing required.
The edges are the important part in installation and care (don't high pressure hose <12" away from edge.)
when I put on my Kawi marketed tank pad I was annoyed by couple bubbles in the middle, but they went away aftre the bike sat in the sun for a few hours.
not comparing products just lettin you know what happened to me
I let my mechanic do that, lol. There were a couple of air bubbles too, that the Sun took out the first sunny day. Those are hard because of the glue. He put it on for free, so it turned out to be a good deal
Aligning the complicated oem Versys tank (nut) pad was the hardest thing to install correctly, which he did perfect!
