990 Baja rear decal - anyone remove theirs?

I'm wondering if you remove the baja decal on the rear side panels, is it sporting the 2012 painted graphic underneath? Anyone here know?

I haven't done it on my bike. I would think if you removed it you just have a blank white panel there.

Not 100% sure on the new bikes. On the older bikes, the bikes are painted, then decaled, then cleared. So, my guess is that when you review the decal, you will see the outline where the decal was, and there will likely be color but no clear under the decal area.

Some images in here show you what the tanks look like with the decals removed on a 950: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=631482

To me the Baja looks like the sticker was added as a last step. When cleaning the bike, I can see the edge of the decal collecting dirt and leaving a dark edge. I've always thought this decal was clear with screen printing for the logos from the rear like dirt bike decals, but I'm not certain of this.

They are large decals. The bike demanded I remove the decals and the bike looks better. Lame decals anyway. ds

I figured since the baja is a bunch of left over 2012 white 990 parts, maybe the rear panels are like the 2012 underneath. I'm shit full of the baja dicoloring vinyl on the rear side panels, that's all.

Desert Sky, was it just all white underneath, or were there any "990 Adventure" logos from 2012?

Thanks for the kind words. But as we all know, once you define the bike's function, its form follows suit. Thanks, again. ds

What did you use to get the sticker cleanly off and were you able to keep the stock wiring for the auxiliary lights when you did the high fender?

use acetone to get the adhesive residue from the graphics off. works like a charm and quick and doesn't destroy anything.

I used a hair dryer to warm up the stickers and then WD-40 to remove the little adhesive that was left. Removing sticker residue might be one of the best uses of WD-40. The panels were plain white. FWIW The Baja graphics on the front are clear coated over on mine.
