Got a 2016 Can Am ATV. Camo wasn't an option.

This year they have a camo version, looks nice.

I have seen these graphics, stucjers. But if i do this its only on the top. Bottom would still be gray.

Do they sell complete graphics or new plastics all together.

Who does this type of work?

You can buy pre-cut camo vinyl kits for some ATV's you can find via google. I bought some sheet vinyl to do my Pioneer front from these guys. Kryptek vinyl

There are youtube videos you can watch on how to do it. They make it look real easy. I find it's not quite that easy doing curves, corners, etc. particularly if you're pretty anal about your work. Lots of stretching, blow dryer work. I'm proud of one fender and the hood, the other fender not so much, but it's better than Red.

You can also call some of the vehicle wrap places if you want it done. Not inexpensive.

If you can verify they didn't change frames or mounting positions between your year and the newer one with camo skin, you could probably buy the newer camo plastic and install it.
I would think it would be pretty expensive but you can look here for idea on the prices of the new parts.
Can-Am ATV Parts

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with the company above but do buy lots of parts from them for Polaris, Honda, Kawasaki and Yahama ATVs, UTVs and motorcycles.

^^Holy smokes! Just for grins, I looked up a camo front fender for a 2017 outlander max....$663 for just the front fender. $360 for right rear fender, $360 for left rear fender. Might as well sell the 16 and buy the 17 for that kind of moneys.

Back when I was racing dirt bikes, I could get a FULL plastics kit, plus custom graphics for a total of ~$300. If it was mine and I wanted camo that bad, I'd sell it and buy the camo version, or go the cheap route and have it either dipped or wrapped in vinyl. If you go the vinyl route, the easiest way I've found to put graphics on plastics is to clean the plastic very well, then spray soapy water on the plastic. It'll help you move the vinyl around while getting it to stick. A squeegee and a blow-dryer will help a ton.

You can still get decent packages for dirt bikes pretty cheap and even cheaper if you get last years graphics package.
And lots of aftermarket plastic manufacturers so you don't have to go back to factory plastic if you don't want to.
Lot of difference between two side cover/number plates and a pair of fenders and front number plate for a bike and those 4' X 4' front fenders on the average ATV or UTV.

The factory stuff is probably more durable than graphics or vinyl packages but it's still a lot.

That's why I put the link up there so he could compare.
You could buy a lot of rattlecan and vinyl for the price of new factory plastic!

I agree, cheaper plastics can be had depending on if it's available for a specific machine. Acerbis (quality) and UFO (junk with fit and finish) are two that came to mind for dirt bikes. I always ran acerbis plastics along with whatever graphics companies were giving me heavy discounts or free graphics (depending on the year.)

Not sure if it's changed much in the past few years, but plastics kits for utility atv's were pretty limited back when I was selling parts.
