Hey guys,

Thinking of carbon vinyl wrapping the battery side covers and neck covers for a custom look but I'm worried that the battery side cover is too close to the exhaust and melt/damage the vinyl wrap. What do you think guys? Has anyone done this on their v-star?

Thanks,
Dan

Dan, Since the side covers themselves are plastic it would most likely be ok. During hot weather and extended idling would be the worst case. You might want to try putting a small piece just near the exhaust on the side cover and see what happens under controlled conditions. In other words ride until the bike is warmed up bring it back home and let it sit idling for a while to see what happens.

If this test fails you know it will also fail on a grander scale. ;)
