798cc Stickers lost thread

Someplace in here I saw a thread about 798cc stickers created by a member. These are placed on the fairing of our 650's... anyone know about these?

I have this one on my Zega Pro:




I'm looking for some 798cc stickers too, to replace the ugly stock BMW 700GS...

Before and after pics (affixed to rear plastic)...

Rather than putting them on the front fairing as recommended, I just pulled off my factory decals on the rear plastics, and used the ones from Adventure Decals in that same spot. Here are before and after pics:

Before:
Stock decal photo E266490F-0F76-4103-B00C-881A7CF6F7A8-11650-0000065D5577BF07_zpsef79e65f.jpg

After:

Got a 4HP gain from this decal alone!! photo E8481ABF-FFAA-4347-A5CE-E9DF84062D0A-11650-0000065D64AFE3AD_zps66651883.jpg

The bike feels so much faster with those extra 148cc!!!!!

Looks great, mine does not have the side 650 stickers but it does have a few scratches to cover up!

Oh... cause people will think you have 700cc instead of 798cc. Got it.

Because there's no reason to say it's a 700 if it's a 800...
