Decal Kit for Beak and front Cowling

Most of us have seen the side decal kit with the 1000 Vstrom logo for the side of the bike -



There is also a decal kit for the Beak and front cowling which looks to add a bit of styling to the beak and black plastic surrounding the headlight.





Here is is applied to a DL1000. I think it looks really good and helps to give the bike an Adventure look.

You, sir, are a raving enthusiast! I'm not sure the very fine font for the 1000 makes the bike more adventurous but it certainly looks good.
I can't see myself having a steady enough hand to self mount them properly though. I had trouble making straight pin stripes with the tape on my side car rig.
Farkle on!

There is a trick to mounting those decals. You get a spray bottle of water, mist the area, place the decal and then use a squeegee to remove the water from underneath.

See, there's always a trick. I thought 3 beers were too many.

You could also try misting the area with beer. That could work...

When you are quaffing Chamay it's hard to waste in a spray!

I had to google Chimay. Sound more exotic than Bud, for sure.

Just another shot of decals applied. Smaller shot though so not as much detail.



And a close up of the decals on the front Beak.

Another large shot of Decals applied. Full kit on this bike. I am really liking the look of these decals and this pic of the DL1000
