Quick and dirty graphic adjustment. Always hated the angle of the CRF text.

I would buy a set. This is how they should come from the factory.

My thoughts exactly, are the stock graphics "sublimated" into the plastic? Or are they physical stickers on top of the plastic?

Nice! They look good... I like the original too but just wish they put the "450" logo above the "CRF" like you did here.

He put the "450" below the CRF. They come above.

LOL. I was thinking I like what he did with the logo in the top picture. Tilted the logo forward, as in forward thinking, and got rid of the logo where it's most vulnerable to knee abuse. Then someone else's post made me think, no, that's the stock one! To each his own.

edit: Then I read another reply that makes me think, no, the top one IS the modified one. If that's the case, yes, I like it for the reasons stated above. I guess it would've helped if you said which was the stock one in your original post.

I have updated my post now. Let me know what you think I am curious to see what people prefer...

Your mods are MUCH better. They're leaned forward in the attack position....more visible when the rider is on it. Great job!

The top picture is the modified one AND the '450' is below the 'CRF' in it.

The stock graphics are a total nonsense, breaking all the bike's lines.
Always wondered who "designed" this mess.
Your version is ten times better.
Good job!

I agree. Thanks! I just want some justification as to why they angled it the way they did!

Beauty. Pain in the ass. Whatever. haha

I think yours are better, but the stockers still look great for a stock bike. Need to break so not QF to some people, and what did you do on the other side?

I can see why people don't like the stockers, because there are tension points in the lines – but I bet it could be fixed with scale and intersection points with the plastics...

I can also see why they did the stockers that way, it's just not an obvious consideration to most normies (non-designers), they're just looking at the angles. The stock design makes the bike look lighter/longer/sleeker than cramming them up front.

I should do the other side...I’ll whip it up tomorrow if I have free time. I think the original angle is off the front fender. It does balance out the white so the side number plate doesn’t weigh it down.

Conceptually, the angles towards the center give he impression of lower center of gravity or balance. I like the simplicity of it just always looked a little off.
