    You find a really good source for hard badges, please let me know.
    You could try Evo MX, they do a good job with the peel-n-stick variety of decal.

    I think Joe Chod said he gets stickers and makes a back for them. Thanks for the lead on stickers

    So you can see by the picks that my bike is almost done. My problem now is that while on the side stand, it would leak trans fluid. I thought the leak was from around the gasket. resealed and still leaked. Then I saw that it was coming from the weep hole behind the water pump seal. The cover is a newer one with 2 bearings for the water pump. I had put new bearings in with the sealed bearing going in first and the open one by the crank. Did I have the bearings in wrong? Do I need to silicone the sealed bearing? anyone have this problem?

    If euro isn't interested in those I would be. They are tank badges correct? Fit my 84?

    my scoot with a new cover leaks slightly when riding but it doesn't leak on the stand.? may bee reseal the bearings with a little Loctite?

    (who wants to pull that flaming cover off AGAIN!!)

    Are they actually hard, or just that thick flexible fabric?
    Also, can you get them with the right "H"? The 'official' ones shouldn't have hard corners on the inside of the 'H'.

    so you are using a universal silencer? how does it fit?
    bike is looking great, it will really come together with some decals..

    Yes, universal FMF. I used a small piece of pipe that comes with it. I cut it to length and butt it to the pipe. Used a radiator hose to couple them. They didn't have anything that fit over the pipe.
