Thanks again to Zedex9r for these awesome patches.

I have had these for some time and finally got around to getting them on. I went a different route than most and didn't place them on any article of clothing. Instead I ironed them to the Tank Bra.

This was complete trial and error (with more error than anything) and you will clearly see its far from perfect. I had to go through 2 other patches to get it right! :yikes:

anyhow here are a few shots of how it looks



Didn't get this one placed quite right... :thumbdown:



This is one is much better but a bit off. You can see the VSTROM lettering almost sits parallel with the plastic molding. :beatnik:







For now I'll run them this way.. When I get sick of looking at them not perfect I'll try again.

Let me know what you think!

Cheers

Adds a real nice touch to the tank bra.

Thanks for your support :yesnod:

Thanks for the feedback!

I'm a fan of Decals. You should see my GSXR 1000!! All tasteful of course!

Hmm.. now that's an idea? How tough do you think these would be to make as decals Zedex? Maybe even a reflective decal?

As always, appreciate the troops!

Cheers

I have been promising these for awhile now, and sorry for the wait. Rest assured these will be appearing very soon! :yesnod:

Looking forward to seeing them! And thanks for the PM with you info. I'll be getting that order in soon.

I just went out and checked on the patches and it looks like when the glue cools it no longer bonds to whatever material the tank bra is made out of. Tomorrow I will test my hand with a needle and thread!

They can be ironed on, but mainly to cloth (cotton, polyester) but don't seem to iron on to the Nylon that most motorcycle gear is made from.

I tried to iron them onto my AXO Enduro jacket, with no success.

To affix the patch to my hydration system I used Selleys Ultra Repair Glue (that is the brand here in Australia).

I went with this because it is ultra flexible & elastic, weatherproof and adjustable for 1 minute when applying the patch:



This has worked perfect so far, and no sign of the patch lifting off. I am going to do my jacket this weekend with it as well.

Hope this helps.

Interesting. Thanks for posting that flexy bond stuff. Probably works well on a bunch of applications.

I wonder if I could use something similar to that for the tank bra? Not against sewing them on, but I'm not looking forward to doing this by hand.... no machine!

When I put the patch on my Hydration pack, I started to hand sew it on as well. Very arduous, so I then tried this flex glue as well and it has stayed on no problems. :thumbup:
