Light switch and swingarm decal

Maybe this should be two threads, but I figured I'd consolidate. Two kind of odd questions.

First, I just replaced the lower swingarm cover on my 06 F4 with a CF piece, but thinking about getting the OEM decal that shows chain slack measurement to place on it. My idea is to take all the pieces that MV molded as faux-carbon plastic on the F4S and put CF in it's place, but I don't want it to look aftermarket or modified. I found P/N 800092667 on Star Twin, but I'm not certain if this is the right decal or not. See image:



Can anyone confirm this? And a shot in the dark - anyone have a spare one I could buy? They're only a couple bucks from Star Twin, but with about $25 international shipping. My sense of principle won't let me pay 10x more in shipping than a part is worth. haha

Second - does the EU left-hand handlebar switch for lights/horn have a master on/off switch for the headlights like most other EU bikes, and is the harness and connector the same as the US spec bike? The ballast on my HID's sometimes cuts off if the battery isn't at peak charge when I start the bike, and I'd like to be able to just switch off the headlights until the bike is running. Same thing with the decal for the carbon, I don't want the bike to look modified, so I'd like to have an OE switch mechanism if possible.

Thanks guys!

Send an email to StarTwin, they do offer alternative shipping options if you ask them.
If that doesn't help put your request in the For Sale section.

Thanks, Donsy, didn't think about trying to negotiate shipping rates. They didn't have an option for shipping method online.

Anyone have input on the EU handlebar switch for the lights/horns - does this have an on/off switch for the main beam, and is it compatible with the US harness and clip-on?

Don't think the low headlight is on before the engine starts..It is the parking light that is on...?
