Stickers for the Wee ...apart from Shark Teeth ...

Hey All,

Im sure everyone knows all about the very cool shark teeth stickers done buy a bloke over on ADVRider ...

Are there any other options for stickering up the Wee ??

I am off on a fundraising ride at the end of this month doing 15000Klms+ and was looking for something funny/interesting ....not normal ...

Cheers

Paul

Maybe you could paint something on there yourself. or find a local graphics shop to make something for you. maybe a stormtrooper on a strom?

Oops. Shipping to Oz would probably rule that out.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Go have a look in Supercheap.

That's where my "Bite Me" stickers came from.

They have lots of assorted stickers, some good, some just weird [depends what people are in to I guess ].



Ock. in Oz

I ride naked and unafraid.

I was considering this very subject the last couple of days. Even asked Greywolf how to remove the factory decals.

This is Photoshopped but it's something I'm considering on my Wee...




Also considering "Zep Rider" near the top of the fairing all in Jet Fighter fashion. No, never been Air Force but I love jets and want to personalize my Wee.

From what I've been told, heat decals and other stuck-on-ables with a hair dryer and gently begin the peeling process. Use a credit card to help scrape away; worked very well for me. Use Medi-Sol Adhesive Remover. It's like Goof-Off which is typically used in offices for removing labels and other sticky things from equipment.

I find Medi-Sol to be a bit safer as it's for use on your epidermis to remove bandage and other tacky stuff and it has a refreshing orange scent :mrgreen: Worked well when removing the original Suzi factory warning labels. Then use alcohol to prep the surface for application of the new decals. When your done finish off with Original Bike Spirits and bring to a shiny luster!
