This morning I took advantage of the decent weather and free time and cleaned up the Monster, removed those horrid stickers on the exhausts and gave it a fresh coating of ACF-50.
On the topic of stickers, personally I think they have no place on a bike, with the possible exception of a rider logo on the screen. I know some are used to cover marks and scratches, but I just don't think the bring anything extra to a bike. Badges are fine and in my opinion should be cherished as you should never cover or remove a manufacturers badge. It has to be said thou, that both Kawasaki and Ducati have possible the largest badges on their tanks anyway. All the stickers I get, normally with the purchase of a new piece of kit, get stuck onto my Halfords tool box. Its no £2000 Snap On box so defacing it with the Alpinestars logo seems to work quite nicely. Anyway, here a picture of the now stickerless rear end of my Monster which looks much better for it.
