XT 4PT stickers

Hey guys!

Has anyone bought actual stickers for their XT600E from a Yamaha dealer?

If you have, and still have the stickers in storage or somewhere, could you upload them on to here?!

also, if someone has a nice clear picture of the front headlight sticker preferably with alot of megapixels lol could you please take a picture of it and send it to me so I can "CLONE" it the best way that I can?

I'll post it here for anyone wishing to use it

Also, if you could measure the length the sticker all around or make a stencil out of it and scan&share it with me it would help me out a lot while taking the GUESSING part out of the way...

High resolution picture is very much welcome!



Here is an example of what I did to a sticker I found on ebay for a Yamaha R1 and the "CLONE" I made for my XT:






I got although this is not at scale here, I have the original in a 10cm x 6cm but it's 34MB and imageshack won't take over 10MB so I can't post it here.

Also, I can easily customize it to any other colors. (If you give me the HEX# color code it's a go or just tell me what tone you want and I'll give ya several close tones)
Even sizes I can try do it as long as you tell me exactly what size you want!

Program I use is CorelDRAW X5.

I got them ready!

Are you going to print it my yourself?

I suggest you find a place that makes these stickers and have them use good quality materials which is UV protective!

PM me your email and I'll send it to ya!

Can anyone with a 4PT make an outline decal for me of their front headlight sticker?

This is what I'm looking for:




I just need the black outside....and if you can make a rectangular box around the Yamaha lettering it would also be nice

Use that Stencil paper sheet that is also used in Tattos and even baking...and make an outline with a Sharpie or something similar...

First I need to find someone to print them. but that red scheme looks VERY good. the orange, to me at least looks closer to yellow. it may just be that I have a KTM orange XT, and I'm not used to the shade you used. still looks quite good though.

Thanks. as soon as I get someone to print one or two up, I'm definitely putting them on my bike. they'll make my headlight shroud look SO much cleaner.

It's kinda hard to choose a color when there are infinite choices lol..

If you check the link I also put in the email you can see what orange I went for!

If you want another just let me know and I'll paint it!

I dont know if I even need the orange now, that red is just about perfect I think. now I just need a skull and crossbones painted on my tank and I'm set.... jolly roger FTW!


actually, I'm inspired now to do a pirate scheme on my bike for fun.
