Just wondering about the longevity of these stickers, it would seem to me that months of engine heat, cleaning the bike etc, etc, would eventually ruin any vinyl sticker ?

Mine are cut from heat and UV resistant vinyl. I have sent around 150 sets out over the past 8mths or so and not had a problem. The first test ones that I fitted to my own bike are still perfect.

Simon supplied mine . I was dubious myself of longevity. But 9 month on still on the bike  after lots of washing lots of heat etc .
Still look like new.

I decided to just replace the plain ones on my RS with the DOHC versions that come on the Cafe.

Mine came out really nice, but I ended up replacing the piece glued to the case with a new one, and they're not cheap.  Simkaz stickers are nice.



Looks smart mate. Glad you liked the decals.  :062:

Is there anyway I can order some stickers or has that ship sailed?   

I don't usually have a big smile on my face, but when I do I probably am riding my bike.

I just looked at the 2019 RS Cafe today when getting my RS inspected for the brake line recall. Guess what!!!!! The side engine covers have the DOHC on it. The salesman did not even notice.

Also the exhaust is now a burnished metal type, not the chrome like before.

Very nice looking bike. They had 5 total on the floor, one Cafe, 2 Jafa and 2 black ones.
