The stickers are top notch OEM Yamaha and look great, I got them from TABASCO (Jaxon) at Ride On Adventure. He can get you any WorldCrosser parts you need.. Good guy-

The reasone your decal look different is that you have them on wrong. Swap them left to right and then it will flow on the tank nicely

Negative Ghost Rider....................

They are not on incorrect, they are different then any Worldcrosser tank stickers I've ever seen.. The ones I've seen and the ones pictured on the YAMAHA package that these ones came in are different (see video) then the ones I have/received... Don't even look similar----

I'm actually very happy with the ones I got so its all good......

Jaumev is the resident forum sticker expert. His say is final.

I had heard Yamaha had a special dyslexic sticker pack made to pass
strict US equal opportunity laws. Have to keep an even playing field you know.

Same reason certain colors are sexual preference oriented to avoid discrimination lawsuits.
Frankly I'm surprised the Raven Teneres don't come with cruise control so the limp wrists
can have a throttle break.

Nope. But, they do cure the off-idle stumble...

I'm using the OEM heated grips. Expensive but plug and play electrics, nice attention to detail (the heat controller bracket is rubber mounted and attaches within easy reach on the mirror stem), and they get very hot. Some people have commented that the left side doesn't stay as hot as the right because the bare handlebar drains away the heat. I insulated the bar with heat shrink tubing before installing the left grip and both sides heat evenly.

I don't know if you guys got the memo. But, this thread is neither for asking questions, nor answering them.

That is what Google is for...
