Has any body ever heard of the paint getting ruined from removing the tank trim?? I've heard a few stories from people trying to remove the trim and they end up screwing the paint up. No sure if they just screwed up, but they have to get the tank repainted.

Don't even have to use the blow dryer. Pry the chrome up from the bottom it one corner till you can get your finger under it. Then slide your finger up while you pull the chrome piece up. What your doing is separating the chrome piece from the tape. Then you just have to use glue gone to remove the tape from your tank. Took me 30 seconds to remove the chrome piece this way. It was the removing of the tape from the tank that took time. :eek: But you don't mark your tank up at all this way. 8)

That's because it's stupidly overpriced. You can get trim rings that will fit perfectly for under $10. And you can get them already chromed rather than an unpainted piece of fiberglass.

Any suggestions on where to look for those trim rings Xavier?

After much debate I am going to get the trim ring from Big Rig chrome and remove the stock piece. I guess if I don't like it I can always put the original piece back on.

I contacted the eBay seller. They had one left so I scooped it up. They did tell me they were ordering more. Cost me 4.20 shipped. Can't beat that.
