I like to put the honda wing stickers on the rebels- I think they look good and they make the bike seem more finished IMHO. I have struggled with the placement. The blue one has the stickers too far back and too nose up. They are coming off. The red one is closer but the stickers are a bit too far forward. I have had better luck with the two-toned Chinese tanks, the insert helps to align the stickers. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them!

I've not done this, but what you might try is to print out a paper version of each about the same size and gently stick them on with a loop of tape on the back and try to get the positioning to where you like it when you stand back and have a look, then maybe do a loose outline, or just mark a few points, with masking or painters tape, pull the paper decals off, and apply the real ones as you've marked. Would that be doable?
