I don't like any of the OEM stickers. I peeled mine off and applied "german" style graphics from cypress graphics. I love the way they look.

I'm not sure about the font. They are meant to mimic the BMW style of lettering. I think I paid around $25 for 4 decals, and they look like new after 2 years. Here's a link to the website.

OEM Suzuki decals are so ordinary. DecalZone is one example of what's available out there.


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

I like the 2nd example,


I'm in the unfashionable minority, I like the OEM stickers, they make the bike look sharp. Bikes without some kind of V-Strom graphic look too generic for me.
