5 Tips to Wrapping Your Motorcycle



**This is a guest post.





Any motorcycle enthusiast knows that wrapping their bike is an art that gives an unexplained pleasure. It is an activity that takes time, and only those with a passion for bikes can go through it. Unfortunately, even people who may have this passion sometimes find it hard to do it right.  You need to practice and understand motorcycles well, for you to wrap a bike and feel proud of it. If you want to properly wrap your bike but have no idea how to, then rest easy because, we are about to give you 5 tips to doing it, and doing it perfectly.


1. Go for high-quality wraps
The wrap is supposed to protect your bike from the elements such as heat and dust. That’s why you need to go for a high-quality wrap if you want to get a perfect view of your wrapped bike, while at the same time protecting it.  To give your bike a nice wrapped appearance, go for top quality wraps like those sold by Bourbon St. Wraps. They are made of high-quality materials that will give the results you are looking for.
2. Wrap when moist
Experienced people can easily do a dry wrap on a bike, but this is not a fete that the average motorcycle enthusiast can pull off. That’s why it is best to go for the more conventional way, and do a moist wrap. When you moisten the wrap, it becomes easy to move it around the different parts of your bike. For instance, it is very difficult to do a dry wrap on the motorcycle exhaust pipe, unless you are very experienced. But with a moist wrap, even an amateur can pull it off with ease. However, you should make sure not to wet the wrap so much. An extremely wet wrap is as hard to pull off as a dry one. Just try and keep things in the middle.


3. Unscrew the pipes before wrapping
One of the hardest part to wrap in a bike is the exhaust pipe. No matter how experienced you are, wrapping it while still on the bike can be a hassle. That’s why you need to unscrew it, and wrap it while off the bike. Of course, you need some mechanical skills to do this. You can always ask a professional mechanic for help with the pipes, then do the wrappings yourself.


4. Find a good clamp to tie the wraps
Once you have wrapped the bike, you need to ensure that the wraps stay in place. This is especially important for rough areas of the bike like the exhaust pipe. For best results with the wrappings, go for metal cables. These give a strong grip that can always be adjusted to meet your needs in case the grip starts to loosen up.


5. Make sure you wear gloves

You probably don’t know this, but most wrappers are made of fiberglass. This material can damage your skin through tiny but deep cuts.  To avoid this, ensure that you wear gloves at all times when you want to wrap your bike. You will enjoy the whole activity while keeping yourself safe.
