I'm pretty sure that's a dual Leo Vince exhaust set up, I think a street going version. I'm playing hell finding a dual system that I would like.

Trying to figure out a spot to post the files so you can download them... There is 2 files, both are Adobe Illustrator files and they are TINY. I guess for now if you want to PM me your emails I can just email them to you...

Smushed them down and put it in one so you can see basically what there is...

Here is mine. I had my sticker guy print up a pattern print on I think 14" wide 3M laminated stuff. This is standard MX graphics material. It is what I have on my dirtbikes and what I get stickers made from for suspension. I made templates with butcher paper and a crayon. I rubbed the crayon on the edges and they make a perfect pattern of what you are trying to copy. Then you transfer the shape to the real deal, cut it out and fit it. Lots of windex, heat and time. It took most of an afternoon to install the decals. But they are holding up great 2 years later. This photo is soon after the install.

Nope, stock tank, painted orange by PO. That was one of the main reasons for the decals. The paint doesn't have enough flex agent or something and on the impact zones popped off like an egg shell. So I needed a good way to cover it up and protect it. A lot cheaper than stripping the tank and repainting.

Phew. The paint didn't look right for the stock paintable tank, and I got worried that it was the Rallye tank that is reportedly not paintable... stickers shouldn't work either. OK, nevermind.

wow that's so cool - my 95 620 looked like an easter egg and I pulled off those 'Technocel' graphics before I even got it home.

Okay, everyone that sent me an email should have em... Let me know if you have any problems. If you have older versions of Illustrator, I may be able to save them in different formats for you.

DP's Illustrator should be able to "export" a TIFF for you to use with whatever program you want (such as Irfanview).

I've been muddling around trying to find a free program to view these as well. I figured I'd plot out several copies on Mylar and store them away. Will post if I find a program that works well, and is free.

For the time being, I guess I'll schmooze one of the marketing girls at the office to open and plot these for me.
