- Super strong 3M peel and stick adhesive
1. Before fitting, set the bike up in a clean dust free area.
2. Make sure area on tank where Chimp Grip is to be fitted is completely clean and free from grease, wax and other contaminants by cleaning thoroughly with a paint safe solvent such as Brake Clean or Alcohol.
3. Test fit the Chimp Grip so that you know exactly where it is going to fit and how it will line up on the bike.
4. Using a hair dryer or heat gun on low/warm setting, heat the application area and the Chimp Grip pads so that they are warm to touch. Be careful not to over heat and melt the Chimp Grip.
5. Once warm, carefully peel a small section of the backing paper from one end of the Chimp Grip pad and fold it over so that you can apply one end to the bike and check the alignment (if you find it difficult to peel away the wax paper from the edge without removing the glue, you can carefully cut though the centre of the wax paper with a razor blade and peel it away from the middle towards the outside of the tank pad). If it is not aligned correctly you can remove the pad and start again. When you are happy with the alignment carefully stick the rest of the pad on, making sure you work the bubbles out as you go. If you do get a bubble, slowly pull the pad back to release the trapped air then reapply the pad.
6. Once you have all the pads fitted leave the bike for 12 hours to give the adhesive time to cure. Note: MonkeyBones Chimp Grip pads are a one use only item, they are not designed to be removed and re-fitted.
Please note: if you come across the problem of the sticky backing peeling away from the back of the pad when you remove the wax paper, simply make a very light cut through the wax paper in the centre of the Tank Pad with a razor blade and peel the wax paper from the centre of the pad back towards the edges. This problem is especially prone to happen when cutting universal tank pads to shape but can be easily avoided by using the method described above.
Please note: If you have problems with Chimp Grip not sticking to your bike or are concerned about problem areas such as plastic shrouds, you need 3M 94 Adhesion Promoter. In some cases, contaminants left on the bike, such as silicon or wax polish, can cause major problems with tank pads not adhering correctly. 3M 94 Primer creates a super strong bond between your tank pad and the tank surface that is ideal for problem areas - click here to purchase
