Flat Pattern Sprint ST1050?

I don't suppose anyone has drawn a flat pattern of the Sprint ST1050 Fairings.......... I am going to get a vinyl wrap done and it would be useful for designing the graphics. I'm sure others have done this and wondered if they started with a flat pattern.....?????

Interesting. Cheaper than repainting, I'm sure.

To vinyl wrap you just use one big piece and stretch it across using heat gun or hair drier.

This is true if you're using a standard wrap pattern. I want to do something a bit more interesting and individual, so need a custom printed graphic wrap. Thus I need the basic shape of the fairing parts and it would be good to know exactly where the bends and air ducts etc. are. Also the triumph 'decals' will need to be printed on to the wrap, and they need to be in the correct place (or there abouts) and at the correct angle.

trying to line up a complete coverage vinyl wrap with all of those cuts would be a nightmare! Have you considered painting the whole bike with Plastidip and then just doing a custom paint job over top of it?

No, Can't say I have. The vinyl wrap Idea was to avoid having to paint her, and to offer a protective cover which could be stripped off if required....

If you figure this out, I'm all over it. RIght side fairing is scuffed up and I'd love to handle that without buying a new one or painting...

If you cover the scuffs with the vinyl the irregularities will show through just as they would with paint. (If you care)

If it's smooth underneath, OP is talking about a colored vinyl that would not show what the fairing looks like. Like applying a specific graphic design to the bike instead of paint. That would cover my touches up scratches.

At SEMA last month I saw all kind of textured wraps that should cover any imperfections of the paint.
