Default Tank Stickers

So I recently did a rattle can paint job on my "01 F4i" bike. Went from white to black and it looks real sharp. The problem is that I cannot find stickers for the Honda wings that fit correctly. I have tried buying a few sets and none of them match the engraving on the tank even remotely close. I bought block stickers and tried to X-acto knife it out myself and well it doesnt look good enough for me. Anyone know the exact dimensions for the sticker so that I can go get it made? (I am going for a dark blue so please dont like Repicals.com since they dont have that color lol)

You're actually trying to keep the wings huh? Haha. I suppose if you're trying to match the wings on the side plastics. Another alternative is to just get black f4i stomp grips. The grip when hugging the tank with your legs makes a significant difference imo. Good luck.

Since there is an impression of the sticker/shape on your tank already,would it work to lay a piece of paper on it and use a crayon or pencil sideways to get the right shape?

Just an idea.

Yeah thats actually the best idea I have at the moment. I did that and scanned it onto my computer and photoshopped it to make it clean. Going to take it to a sticker stand on the weekend and see if it works.

Maybe you could buy the complete f4 graphics sets off ebay and just take the wings out?
