I have the big letters on my wheels, with the tuning forks. I suggest you cut the letters apart and put them on individually. They are made to go on a flat surface, not in the curve of the wheel. Looks much better when you separate. I just put some red decals on my gold wheels. RED ON GOLD, SICK!!!!!!!

I agree. Didn't mean to offend. Like someone said "try it out". Best part about stickers is how easy they go on AND come off. I designed my own graphics if you can call it a design. I just love the retro Yam stripe. Most of my CF is Tekarbon. They have gotten a little bad press here but on a whole somewhere in the middle. I find that even a little unjustified. Everything, Rear hugger/guard, tank cover, intake trim were excellent fit and finish. And their prices are great as well. The tank side panels I got years ago, CarbonWorks, but I have not been happy with their latest stuff. The heal guards and exhaust guard are Graves. A simple adjustment had them work with my rearsets and exhaust which they were not made for.

Thanks man! i love it too! debating whether or not how the front rims would look with the letters a tad smaller of course cause of the smaller(width) rim. i already have the stickers just dunno. but like the person said above, stickers can come off! prob do them tonight when i get home from work.

I put a stripe decal because I wanted to change all the red to blue on my bike. The R1 logo was made at a local sign shop and the rim stripe was purchased from here http://www.tapeworks.com/



I liked the way it came out.
