I have to ask what model headlight is that? Bi Xenon brings up a lot, it looks great.

I am stuck in a dilemma, so I turn to my friends here at GStwins for your opinions.

I repainted my tank after destroying the first repaint I did  >:(

Then today I went had had some decals made up for my tank. I had them made a bit smaller than what the normal size would be and with the addition of a suzuki "S". I am now debating if I should put just "SUZUKI" on the tank and the "S" decals elsewhere or if I should have the left and right side look like the pictures below, similar to how I did the plastics. Also if I do it like the pictures below I dont know if I would rather have the "S" be closer to the headlight or to the rider (me). I HATE BEING SO INDECISIVE!!!   :technical:  :technical:  :technical:

I'd use the esses else where on the bike.  The spacing just isn't right.

Be aware, this is not very wise advise!

The declas dont look exactly like the above pics, I just did those in paint for a general reference.

Got a pic of the decals?

Gray to match the side panels, correct?

I have to think on this one. No other design or pattern included, correct? Just the word?

You know I think I like either or.

or replace the S in Suzuki with the "S".

Yes, It is the same silver as the side panels. I attached a photo of the actual decals below. I am leaning toward either doing them like i drew above in paint, with the S closer to the rider OR just SUZUKI on the tank with 1 S on the top of the center tail piece and one on the front fender.

I need to decide by tomorrow, and I hate decisions.

It looks darker in person, but the camera on my cell phone wont show that. Next time you're in GR you can see for yourself.
