Installation of the stretched tank shroud is pretty straightforward and doesn't even require removing the tank from the bike. You can simply remove the emblems and sand the top of the tank with any sandpaper from 80-220 grit, and this can be done by hand or with a dual-action sander. Once the top half of the tank has been sanded, you can apply the adhesion material, either two-part epoxy or silicone, then install one of the tank halves. Next, you would use some tape to secure the half while the adhesion material dries. You'd then repeat the process for the other side, and once both sides have set, you can cut the tail section to fit your stock or aftermarket seat.
