Removal of the gel decal

Would anyone know how to remove the Italian gel decal on either side of the air ducts? I was thinking about getting some carbon one's and want to re-attach the decal, cheers

if they are gel then i would try and heat them up with a hair drier for a bit then see if they come off. I would think some of the carbon ones come with the flag on them like these from Emoto

don't be cheap...just order what you need from dealer. Decals are the one thing that are easily available.

They just peel off. It helps to heat them up a bit first. Just leave the bike in the sun for a bit and then carefully start to lift them up at a Corner and remove.

I think replacement gel decals are only about 12 from eMoto if my memory serves me right. I bought a set as my F4 came with them missing.

Those cheap decals are about 30 each I was going to do the same thing, be carefull not to bend them too much as the flag cracks and is visible through the clear gell
