German Decals

I know there is a thread dedicated to these elsewhere on the site, but I think these deserve an extra plug. Maybe I'm losing my mind due to cabin fever, but I think these are too cool. Thanks Fozzyber!!

That's the first time I've seen a side-by-side comparison of the "German" decals and the originals. Wow... The new ones look 200% better!

I tried to remove the VStrom decals from my '05 'DL1000 in order to replace them with some aftermarket ones. Holy cow but I've never had so much trouble removing a decal in my life. I removed the "S" with no trouble but then dropped down to the VStrom decal. I used a hair dryer to heat it and it came off in little tiny pieces, leaving this iron like glue on the fairing. I tried GooBGone, kerosene, gasoline, carb cleaner, Tar & Bug remover and every thing short of muratic acid. The residual glue is as hard as nails and won't budge. I don't want to ruin the plastic but I am stumped.

And oh, yeah, great decals.

Elmer's makes a citrus-based glue remover that worls really well. Down here in TX, Albertson's carries it in their school supply department. You may need to saturate a rag with it and let the rag sit on the glue for a while to soften it up. Don't try this with something harsher like GoofOff or gasoline, but the citrus stuff won't harm the paint or plastic regardless of how long you leave it on. If your graphics have been on there for several years, it will take some work to get all the glue off.

Way cool!
I just ordered.
I've spent a ton of money on bikes over the years and that's the first piece of non-performance enhancing "bling" I've ever bought.

Nice

The first mod I made to my Wee was removing all the decals. Those German stickers look good enough I may have left them on.

A question though; why are they called "German stickers?"
