I've been using it since my 2011 was almost new. Really like it although I've not put on every piece. I really appreciate the pieces that cover the headlights and around the front. I really appreciate the pieces around the tank where I drag my foot climbing on and off. Watch the videos he has posted, it can take some doing to get it on properly without wrinkles and bubbles. With patience it will cleanly cover compound curves. I still have a couple tiny bubbles from dust underneath the vinyl when I applied it. Watch for dust and wind when applying. Some pieces use a soapy solution using shampoo and water and some use alcohol and water. His instructions mention which. Perhaps 3M was soap but check before applying.
I recall my kit being a combination of 3M and regular vinyl. None have come close to peeling off but I did replace the curved piece near the filler of the tank after beating it up. Better the vinyl than paint.
I admit I don;t wash the bike as often as I should being white it does show the edges of the vinyl around the tank where fine dust accumulates. I guess a combination of Desert Southwest and too lazy to use water to wash the bike often enough.
I'd say go for it.
