Notice the "custom" hole I had to cut in the side panel so I could lift the bike onto a stand. Can't believe they didn't think of that at the factory in '98

Well, I don't know what 20 to 40 means, but I do agree that precut are easier!

But, are they worth the expense? Probably. I probably buy preprinted and precut next time. But I wouldn't buy anything other than the cheapest most plain and boring ones. I just don't care THAT much about stickers.

If I had a new $7000 bike.... I might get fancier graphics. But an old 98 CR.... nah.

LOL I was JUST about to ask you if you owned a 97-99 cr250 because I recognize those side panels! I have the same exact ones on my 98, all white.

I always knew of this method but the actual trimming takes some serious skill. Not only finding your line, but knowing exactly how much pressure to apply, because if you get impatient, you can easily ruin the side panel as well as the backgrounds.

I can't decide if I wanna plate mine or not. I just ride for fun.

Darin you should really look at changing out that OEM seat cover for a gripper real soon. I used to have that same one and it was terrible. The difference when you have a gripper is night/day.
