Hi, I wasn't really sure to put this in with the chassis section, general discussion or what, but i have dealt with and used this companies products before so...here goes.

A few years ago i was looking into having some different graphics to set one of my banshee builds apart from the others. I could have had something made, problem was most graphic shops material will not hold up to off-road abuse.

I was at a freestyle MX competition at Wachovia arena in Wilkes-Barre PA and i knew some of the riders and vendors so i got to chill in the pits and even backflip a nitro rc truck off the big set of doubles during intermission. One of the guys had a HONDA CRF450R that ws just nasty, I mean one of the nicest MX bikes I have ever seen and the graphics just made the bike, they were black and red and had what looked like electricity blasting through in places, not cheap lightning bolts, but just wicked looking electricity and the number plated were integrated and had that old school vintage style digits and the rounded oval around them, he had his sponsors on there integrated as well as his signature and the seat was made to match, i saw this www.XGXRACING.com on there and i found the guy and he told me they were really good to him, i could tell the quality and thickness, but he said he clubs them and they hold up really well...

needless to say, i ended up ordering a set and they were like 220 shipped to my door, considering you will pay almost that for graphics that ten other people have, i figured it was a steal. When i got them in, i actually thought they had a really thick backing on them, but after cleaning per the instructions and peeling the backing off the first one (I did my front fenders first because i was going to cut them off anyways) i realized how thick they really were (i think 22mil.). I put them on and was so impressed with them, i ended up ordering a set for a customers build and i had a set on my 450r that i just sold...they are great to work with, the graphics are shiny and as durable as you could ask, i mean if you scratch something this diesel, you probably need a new fender anyhow, i rolled my banshee down a coal bank and just had a few scuffs on the graphics that buffed right out, the fenders had gouges in them..

Well, I just wanted to share these graphics with you guys, i am no way affiliated with them or anything, just thought some of you would like better options for customizing the look of your xx...

heres thier website, they have some nice designs, i had "impact skull" which was 2 (impact and fire skull i believe) combined for a custom graphic, i had the "hellfire" ones customized to match my white and black 450r and even had a set of just cr ones with barbed wire made for a cr500 i had and i plan on getting some for the xx this winter when i tear it down to powdercoat...

Hope you guys like them, id love to see some sick new graphics on these things !!!

of course the 120hp banshee had to have sick graphics

mine was like this kinda but black and white

they even make a predator look good !!!

they can cut them for anything, a go-cart, a 700, whatever, my buddy put a set on his stupid lifted arctic cat, haha..

you can actually design your own graphics online and they will work with you to get them right, you can put your face on them or a tattoo you like, anything...

It ran good for me, i maintenanced it regurlarly though and its definately not a good trail quad, they run hot, but hillclimbing or wide open through the dunes or drag racing, hellz yeah, the power was seriously more than i have ever felt from a 2-cycle, i even had a built zilla and that banshee would eat it for breakfast...

I climbed a 1600 foot climb in pa, after a failed attempt, i had to re-jet my quad to make it, i had to lean it out alot for it not to be too rich at the top and lose power
