I believe it's using grit tape, as you would find on skateboards... To cover the fender warning decals.

Yep, AG got it. Many of the ATV's now don't have removable stickers. Not sure if they are silk screened on or what, but you can't get them off. So some of us have put that non-skid tape over them. That not only hides them, but it also gives your feet a place to go when going through the deep water/mud.

On the show 'How It's Made' they featured a bucket 'o' toys for kids... The bucket had a label on the front just like the warning decals on our front fenders.

To make the bucket they charged up the mold with static electricity, a robot placed the decal inside the mold. Static held the decal in place.

Then molten plastic is injected into the mold, which ends up flowing behind the decal... And since the decal is made of the same type of plastic as the end product it becomes part of the object.

This is how our fenders are manufactured, and explains why the decal isn't a plain old stick-on.

Since I put mine on all my riding buddies did the same thing. great spot for the feet and saves the heck out of the plastic. I just bought stair tread grip form HD and cut to specs. Works awesome.
