 I used this link and a 04 CRF450r rear fender. Just an extra I had laying around and didn't mind cutting. Taillight is a Baja designs L.E.D.

I've owned both bikes. Both have pros and cons, but we're all a family are we not?

What if two new threads were started:  "show me your xr650l" and "show me your xr650r"

 

I understand where you are coming from, but two different subforums would be a big change.  At least with these two threads you can scroll through and look at just your model for ideas and whatnot.

 

Of course this thread would live on as the original...I mean, it started in 2005!

 

I guess a "600" thread would be needed too.

Nice bike! Now get those horrid steel bars off there and put some good fatbars on. Cockpit is important!

Nice, I've been eyeballing that bike on craigslist. The one off braking rear floating rotor is pretty trick!

It's hard to keep decals on a plastic tank.

The ones from FactoryFX seem to hold up quite well.  Mine still look as good as they did five years ago when I put them on.

 

I would try some contact cement on the part that is peeling up.  Apply it to the sticker, let it dry, then apply it to the tank, making sure that you cover at least all that the sticker will touch.  Once that is dry stick it down, then rub off the extra adhesive.  I would double-check with a little dab on some spot you can't see to be sure that it rubs off first.

 

Contact cement seems to stick well to just about everything.

Thanks for the quick reply. I will try the contact cement. It's not a big area, just put them on and dont want to give them a head start. Probably didnt help much by leaving them sit uninstalled for so long......my bad.  Thanks again.
