InvisiGARD Paint Protection

Have any of you install this clear paint protection on your bike? Are there different makes/qualities?
I'm tired of getting this little scraches (specially front fender ones) and was wondering about the results of using this. Maybe is just some clear sticker that you pay like gold because is cuted to size (I guess I can cut it myself).

if it s just a sticker and you get the dimensions right...you can go the easy path of going to any place with a plotter machine and they'll cut it for you...but i don t think it s just plain old stickers

I've used a similar product in the past on of all things, a DH Mt. bike. I also had a "kit" that was for an 06 WRX STi I had, never installed it, then I sold the car. A number of people on the STi web site swore by it.
The stuff is usually mnfg by 3M and is a few mills thick. Not supposed to turn yellow either. Also supposed to be a bit of a pain in the A$$ to put on but should do the trick, it worked for the Mt. bike I had.
I have been thinking about doing it also. I am anal with the Brute and scratched drive me nut. Black shows all. Let me know, if you pull the trigger, how it works out.

Lots of companies market this 3m product. Originally for aircraft application, I see adds in motorcycle magazine classifieds all the time. Make your own.
Here is a link to a company that specializes in this product for motorsports application:

I bought one few months ago. A b*tch to install, IMHO. Couldn't completely get the bubbles out during install and the bubbles didn't just dissipate like what the instruction said... Maybe I'm just clumsy, I don't know. In hindsight I should have taken the kit to have the window tint people install it.
Beware though the Brutale kit from InvisiGard has limited coverage----nothing is covering the area on the sides of the tank around the intake, where I had a stone chip. I have yet to put on the "tank side left/right" because I don't think that area needs the "protection". Only put on one "pillion side" because the raised Brutale lettering made the finished fit very ugly--it doesn't stick close enough to the lettering so I just gave up putting up the other side. I couldn't get a good fit on the headlight one so I had to cut a big slit to make it fit better--not professional-looking finish. As for the "tank pad" I would stick with the stock MV's thick vinyl anyday so I didn't install....
However, if you still want to get that kit, I'd suggest you look for it on ebay because the company always put one up there--you can get a better price there!

I agree, I saw this kit years ago, but don't think it offers any worthwhile protection for the brutale.

I bough the all set a few month ago. It's still in the box. I'll try to put it on the bike for spring time and keep you inform.

Try the helicopter tape...I have seen it used on a lot of race bikes and street bikes, and looks pretty good. Do it yourself, so you only place it where you want, and it comes off with no damage if you aren't happy.
