I'm having the same problem with my rear decals. They're peeling up on both sides at the front where my legs sit. They're also starting to discolor a bit, turning a brownish white, especially around the edges.

IMHO, KTM went cheap on these. They're just big stickers that they put over the panels, they're not clear coated over top like the front end of the bike is. Mine may be coming off soon too.

i wouldnt say the graphics are cheap, its just that the graphics are in a high rub area. my baja is doing the same thing but its only happening when im wearing moto boots. if im going to work with work boots and such no rubbing at all. no matter what graphics you put on that fender panel, due to how it is designed, your gonna rub it off.

I recognized this as a potential issue from the beginning and therefore got some Klim Mojave over the boot pants. Big leather panels on the inside of the legs. No boots rubbing the bodywork.

I'm a big fan of Honda Spray Cleaner/Wax. I think using it will delay fade/color of the clear sticker.

I don't think it's a clear sticker. I think it's white vinyl/PVC which explains why it yellows or discolors in sunlight.
