They aren't under the Clear.No way.You think they'd mess up their pretty tank?I saw a few pics from the Indonesian pics...there weren't any on THOSE tanksI don't remember even seeing any on the Factory pics.A hairdryer will lift em easy enough.
Had a skim back through my pictures from the H2 launch in Milan - definitely no stickers on the H2R and no obvious stickers on the H2 tank either. But these were pre-production show bikes so no guarantee that the production bikes will be sticker free !
The H2 portfolio I have clearly show's Kawasaki stickers on the tank.
If they use the same process as all late model ZX-10R's the stickers will be under the clear coat.
Any attempt to remove them will ruin the paint on your tank.
We won't know until delivery if they are under the clear or not.
From the pics the sticker looks raised,so it may be on top???.
This paint process is more complicated than a 3 layer pearl.So very difficult and time consuming.
It takes 4 painters 1 working day to paint 1 H2.
"I'd kick myself if the tank got scratched removing them due to the mega sensitive nature of the finish no matter how careful I'd be... and I've removed plenty flawlessly before."...it's a clear coat.You won't affect the paint by heating with a hairdryer and peeling the sticker off with your thumbnail.Just don't use a razor blade or something.
