Hey guys I pulled all of my stickers off last night.
its so much cleaner looking. the stickers are poop quality anyway and came off with ease using a blowdryer!!

I was thinking of adding some color to the section that had Kawasaki on it.

so I photoshopped it.
here's what I came up with. feel free to use it as u see fit
I think I like the charcoal, tangerine (more red than orange) then blue


cheers

Did you use adhesive remover to finish the removal? I'm going to remove mine as well, prolly just leave it plain. Maybe some red accents Motul stickers and the like?...I dunno. but definitely getting rid of the stock decals. Nice photoshop work though!

The stickers come off very easily with a hairdryer. I didn't have to use any sort of special adhesive remover beyond that. However, if there is any residue, a pink pencil eraser works wonders.
love the confused look on peoples faces! "wow what is that?"
hair dryer and contact cleaner, alcohol or wd40 works

those look nice. but try painting other parts of the bike so it doesnt look out of place for that one piece to be a different color.

I probably won't spend the time doing photoshopping it.
I think just the removal of decals was enough of a change for now.

I wanna wait for my exhaust to get installed too.

whatever color you end up going with show us a pic. was there any residue from adhesive when you took the decals off? did it come off pretty clean?

comes off with a blow dryer and some alcohol. its took me less then 15 minutes to get every sticker off it... glue and all.

I will leave the stock silver paint for now.
