Default Cheaper/Better alternative to Vic 3m for CR!

Hi,
I've used tankslapper films before for two of my previous bike, and have been very happy with the results. They just posted new kits for the CR, including a total protection kit that gives you tank, front fender tip, headlight, and bag protection. You have a choice of the 3m or their less expensive (but almost as good) tankslapper film. Even the 3m full kit is a good $30 cheaper than the Vic 3m bag only kit. Check it out, I'll be putting this on my CR when I get it:

Great find / great price! I'll need to get that on order as soon as I can find some touch up paint. I have just under 3000 miles and already picked up 2 rock chips. I hope this isn't considered a hijack but does anybody know where to find touch up paint for a 2011 CR in Crimson?

Good find on these pre-cut protectors. I think it's a good investment. I hope they come out with a front fairing kit for an XC soon as well.

I think the dealer can get it for you. The paint codes are also in your service manual. You can download a 2010 XC/XR manual from this site.

Default Update - More Protection

All,

I have been emailing the owner a few times with the suggestion to cover the front of the hard bags too. He agreed that it was a good idea as they are likely to pick up rocks and bugs. So, now the kits offer more protection.

You have a choice of a full protection 3m or mixed 3m/Tankslapper kit, or individual bag package or tank package.

Here's the pieces of the full 3m kit:


Here's the mixed kit:


Even the full 3m kit is less money than the bag only 3m kit from Victory, and I don't think you'll find better protection out there. I'm putting in my order today! And no, I don't work for them. I've just used their stuff before and been really pleased with the results.
