Side cover decal  

New Member Expired Membership

Looking to install side cover decals on my 1975 R750/6. Received same but the decals look like they have a translucent paper coating over the decal. Will this coating dissolve when I soak in warm water, and have the decal slip off the backing. Placed a lot of decals but never seen one with this covering. 

Thanks for any suggestions. Dave

I could be wrong, but I think what you're seeing there is a piece of carrier paper over the front of the decal. If that's the case, there might also be a second layer of paper on the back of the decal, and between the decal and that paper is a layer of adhesive. As such, no water is required to apply the decal. Just peel the paper off the back and stick the decal onto the side cover. Then peel off the top piece of paper, leaving the decal in place.

Maybe post a photo of the back side, too?
