mine is an 05 sv650. just like the one you covered for your buddy. i have been debating back and forth to do a cover. mine has a dent on the right side from a knee slap. it changed the body line alittle and i dont think it can be fixed.

So I did the tank wrap on my r6 and it worked pretty well. However I'm unsure of how to get rid of the bumps from the CF. It is much more textured than I would like. Any suggestions?

Never having done it I can only assume that if you keep blocking down the resin with the recommended W&D paper and building up the layers of resin then after the final sanding down a clear coat over the top would make a difference.

Is this correct?
