So far, no issues at all. I'll try to post some pictures soon.

Decals update

Here's a closeup of how the decals are wearing. No issues on mine so far:



The decal on the little chin piece -- the "K" and the first part of the "T" -- is original decal material. The rest is a replacement.

Orangecicle,
Do I understand this great thread well that you have some type of clear decal that is layed over the black vinyl? Or is the orange underpaint just exposed?

Very nice work.

On my bike, I have the a 3M black vinyl decal that has a clear 3M coating over it. That combination really does match the look of the original decal perfectly. The original was (I believe) a 3M decal with clearcoat over it.

The decals I had cut had the compass rose cut out of the black so that the color of the tank shows through. To protect the black from peeling due to leg rub, we put the clear over the entire area, including the area that shows through. That keeps the decal from peeling and protects the tank paint.

So you have a clear decal over the whole set up. Nice. Was it hard to install the clear over the first set of black decals? I assume the stencil pattern at the Sign shop also includes the clear?

FWIW Tee Tree Oil works well for removing decal residue .

The sign shop delivered the decals with the clear overlay already applied.

Great thread, thanks for all your hard work. I'll be ordering some decals and doing the donation. Mine is an '06 and the bubbles are worse then Dr. Jechyl and Mr. Hyde's face!
