An MX graphic kit from OMX is many things but ordinary is not one of them. Here are a few reasons why you should not settle for less:
- They provide you an unmistakable identity – Anyone who’s spent any time on the track knows that before too many circuits are completed everybody starts looking the same. It’s times like that when a distinctive graphic touch peeking out from under the dirt can create visual separation between yourself and all those other riders who installed the same cheap anonymous looking decals. Think about it. It’s the simple icons that stick in people’s minds: the golden arches, the Apple, the blue square with the white “f” in it.

The kind that sticks in people’s mind whether they want it to or not and ensures that you are not just another mainstream biker on a regular bike – instead, you are an outstanding person whose bike reflects your individuality and is as great and powerful as you are.
- They’re affordable – High quality is never cheap and neither are our KTM custom graphics. But while they’re not cheap they are affordable. Some companies cut back on the quality of materials in order to bring costs down. We keep the quality materials and cut back on waste in the process itself. By streamlining things as much as possible without negatively affecting quality we wind up with graphics that are competitively priced but are of such outstanding quality that they’re head and shoulders above the competition when it comes to being a long term value.

How to Best Install Our Motocross Graphics Kit on Your KTM Dirt Bike
The most amazing graphics aren’t much good if they’re poorly installed. In order to make sure the incredible dirt bike graphics you purchase from us stay where they’re supposed to you need to follow the established installation method below.
- Surface preparation is key – You wouldn’t hang wallpaper on a dirty wall (at least you shouldn’t). You wouldn’t paint the house without scraping off the old paint and cleaning the surface first. And you should never try installing a new OMX dirtbike decal without first engaging in some focused surface prep. Start with a clean damp cloth and wipe down every surface that’s going to receive a graphic. Then check for problem areas. Clean them using a mild degreaser like dishwashing liquid. Then rinse and dry. Any areas where old KTM factory graphics may be peeling or where they left behind adhesive residue should be sanded (lightly) with 400 grit wet sandpaper. Wash one more time and then dry with a soft cloth.
- Do a dry run – Once all the components that are going to receive KTM stickers are properly prepared lay the graphics out next to them so you can get an idea how they’ll look. If you want you can tack each graphic up to the intended destination to make sure it’s going to appear the way you want it to. Before you peel off any backs take each graphic and do a dry run with them, practicing how you’re going to apply them. Determine where is the best place to start and get used to the motion you’ll have to make to install the decals.
- Begin with the simple stuff – Even after you’ve practiced your motocross graphic kits installation motion a few times it will still be new to you when you peel off the first back and have at it. Therefore make sure you start with the easiest pieces first. No gnarly corners or odd shapes to begin with. Do the biggest flattest areas and take your time. This will allow you to get used to the feel of the materials before you hit the more complex shapes. You can use a squeegee to work out any air bubbles or minor creases. Just be sure not to push too hard – although our decals are durable, they are not supposed to endure harsh hits of a squeegee or a similar instrument.
- Progress to the harder parts – As you grow more accustomed to the feel of the material and how it responds to your attempts to manipulate it you can move on to tougher and more challenging pieces. Just remember to take your time. If something doesn’t feel right or you can see it’s off course slowly back out and try again. There’s no penalty for being careful and making sure you get it right. You might find it useful to use a hair dryer to flatten out air bubbles but don’t put the hot nozzle too close the surface or it may affect the integrity of the decal.
- Be careful with the gas tank – Gas tanks seem like pretty simple things to attach graphics to but they can actually be tricky. That’s because of the fumes involved. The best thing to do is to empty the tank completely and leave the cap off so it can air out for a day or 2. Once your certain there are no gasoline fumes in play it’s safe to install the graphic (providing you’ve prepared the surface first).
