Over the long hard winter I've been thinking about repainting the tins/plastics on my bike, maybe updating/customizing the color scheme some. The more I thought about it though I was struck that the tank really was in decent shape and the only thing "wrong" was the side cover graphics. In the past I've de-badged plenty of vehicles so I knew that removing the old stickers wouldn't be much of a problem. All you have to do is heat them with a hair dryer and peal them carefully with plastic putty knife. Any remaining adhesive can be removed with goo-b-gone or acetone.
So I began searching for some OEM quality side cover graphics on Ebay and found some offered by Speed & Sport Graphic Reproduction for $24.99.

The graphics arrived pretty quickly, well packaged, and with good instructions. You can watch their installation video at:
. The graphics themselves were printed on very high quality Scotchcal 220 metalic film made by 3M.
After prepping using the methods described in the video this is what my covers look like after install...


Anyhow...If you're looking for some reproduction graphics I would recommend these guys.

I know Ron over at Speed and Sport thru my yama connections. He has a plethra of rare NOS parts and is branching out into graphics, banners, and NOS paint work. If you need rare (and very expensive!) stuffs, he's worth contacting. He also has a large booth in the lower roadside corner of Mid-Ohio swap area every year. I've both sold him parts and purchased parts from him at the swap. Check here for site: http://www.speedandsportinc.com/
