Yamaha Wheel Decal?? Your opinions?

Thinking about adding a little spice to the wheels. I know I am not buying any chrome but hey...maybe a little sticker or two. What are your opinions of the wheel sticker?

Not only are you adding weight to unsprung part of the bike, you are also increasing MOI


Seriously though if you like the decal go for it...not really my style but it's not going on my bike

Doesn't look bad, I would prefer something smaller though.

Yep found this guy who had so nice wheel strip decals. I might order both and see what they look like together and remove if I don't like it. I mean its like a total of $15 bucks to get the big decal and the strips.

**First off I do not condone the removal of those dual exhaust. I would of kept them personally...but hey its his bike and he cut off weight**

I went ahead and got mine from this ebay guy. Looked real legit and has the same strip in red on his page. So what I did was request yamaha blue and used pitbullkiz pick of his 09 for reference. Only $15 and comes with all 4 and extras just in case you mess up.

I am the decal king ( at least my buddies laugh a lot and call me decal boy ) I love a lot of those rim strips. The big Yam on the wheel tough just doesn't seem like a wheel sticker. I'm sure it will also be an obvious flicker as you ride by. Last rim strips cover those pretty words like Marchesini, Carrozzeria and OZ when they occur. I guess you can cut out that portion. I put a very small version of my own on my stocks. Perhaps a small version with the fork as well ?
