I was at the mall Saturday and seen a guy setup in the middle with a laser cutter making vinyl decals. I saw a lot of race logos. I asked him if he could do a KAWASAKI. I want to put it on my lower fairing on the right side. I measured it and it would be 15" X 13". I was thinking about blue to match my bike color. He said it would take him 5 minutes and cost me $15.00. What do you guys think? Will the vinyl hold up? Is it a good idea? Thanks.

it might but I doubt it. All the decals usually have a metalic consistancy to prevent shrinkage and vinyl will shrink

I have custom decals on my bike but I had to put some glue on the sharp edges. I guess 100+ mph makes them wanna peel off

OK, thanks. I'm going to the mall after work and getting them. That's the only sticker i'm putting on. Don't want to go crazy on stickers. I'll post pics tonight.

the black sticker on the tank and the white kawasaki on the lower were done by a "sticker guy". this guy uses 7 year material. picked the letter style and size and he cut them in like 10 minutes....

your's look like it's condensed. in the actual logo, the letters are a little wider. sorry, i notice these things, i'm a graphic designer.
