  • Side cover badge for SG

    Anybody have some nice side cover badges for XS11SG.
    Was working on mine a few days ago and the side cover fell in my oil drain pan. Landed face down in the pan. Did not clean it quickly enough and the plating has fallen off.
    Slow down and enjoy life. If you are in that much of a hurry, you should have left eariler.

    Badge Replicas in Oz has 'em. They have nice metal ones. Your pretty bike is worth it.

      I bought some of those Marty. They are really nice and look great. Problem is they are not bent to conform the the side cover. I was real careful trying to bend them . Even made a mold to press it into trying to bend them. I got it close but they still look funny with the edges sticking out. Long story short I broke 2 of them trying . I gave up after that.
      They are well worth it if the badge can sit flat, but not if they need to be bent.
