My set arrived yesterday from Daniel Watt (Motobi) and they appear first class. $110 including P&P from Canada to the UK. The are the red/white/grey stencil-style lettering and stripes for the 1989 R100GS-Paris Dakar.

And this is what Motobi's decals look like -



I followed his advice and dampened the tank with a wet sponge as this allowed the decals to be easily lifted off and replaced. Before I started I looked at a number of pictures on Google Images to make sure I got the lettering in the right place. Any problems? Well yes. There is a horizontal dent or groove along the tank beneath the storage compartment and the red stripe tried to have a mind of it's own. I tried to get it to meet the existing stripe on the compartment lid but it wanted to miss it by 1/4". Idea. Use a hot air gun. This gently softened the stripe and allowed me to move it slightly (against it's will). I still had to lift it a few times to get rid of air gaps and bubbles but it was done. When fitting the stripe on the opposite side I set the hot air gun in it's 'Hot' setting. Mistake. Within a second or two the red stripe sagged like toffee (candy) but it did fit allbeit it with a couple of tiny bubbles which just won't press out.

I'm pretty pleased with the decals - the word DAKAR are all individual letters which needed to be applied one at a time, so that's why I applied the red stripe in the first place.

Motobi advised me that lacquering over the decals isn't nessessary as they should stay well and truly stuck.

I should add that when I bought the bike six years ago, these decals were missing from the tank.

Decal Set for 1989 Red White R100GS Paris Dakar

TO MOTOBI:
Daniel, can you still supply the decal set for the Tank and side panels of a Red/White 1989 R100GS Paris Dakar ? I live in Belgium.
If so, I would like to order 1 set, but possibly 2 sets as my mate could use a set. Please let me know. Cheers ! Danny

Sorry to hijack a thread, but has anyone seen the side panel decal that says paris-dakar first place? I'd love to get a repro

Question Paris Dakar decal removal - application

I just received a set of red/white Paris Dakar decals from Motobi which I plan to put on my "new to me" 1991 R100 GSPD that has a somewhat faded red "Paris" decal and worn pin striping, but the Dakar decal is in pretty good shape. I see many postings purchasing the same or a similar kit but have not found any advice relating to removal of the old decals or many tips for installing the new.

Paul Rochdale's comment above about wetting the tank is helpful. I also understand the decals should come off using heat from a hair dryer - correct? Once the old decals come off any tips for cleaning or prepping the surface for the new? Alcohol (on the tank)? Goo Gone? Acetone?

I'm tempted to leave the existing Dakar decals in place since they look okay - I assume the "Paris" decal can be removed without affecting the "Dakar"*decal.

Any words of advice for direction from those that have removed decals or installed a Motobi set - problems or successes would be very much appreciated. Your experiences will help me avoid screwing this up and having to buy another set of decals.

If I've missed the post covering this discussion just point me in the right direction.

Thanks

Please ignore this post. Completed the entire job on this rainy Sunday. Thanks!

So did the old decals come off easily with just the hair drier?

Yes, in fact they all pretty much came off in one piece! Applying the new was more of a challenge than anticipated but with practice comes improvement and the second side turned out better than the first. That said, I am pleased with the look of the new decals. Once I get the speedometer back from Oregon I'll be ready to ride!
