[email protected]#%!? STICKERS "AGAIN!!"

Now im really getting pissed off!!
Ive had my silver 06 CBR1000 right side fairing replaced due to the sticker on the curved part near raidiator/thermo fan, coming up.
Well all good for couple of weeks ridden the thing about 6 times and its coming up again!! I know a few other people have experienced this with their silver blade,is there any more people around who have had this drama,especially bikes in OZ, as im told this is very unusual and its the first time they have heard of it.
**** that!! its happened twice now.

Good news is since they replaced it once, they'll have a hard time telling you that they aren't going to replace it again

No paint thinner should work fine

Im going with this theory,just so fast!!
I only clean it with mild soap,chamois,then polish it with meguires about once a month,the other sides had no probs,if they piss fart me around im gonna flip.Then i might just strip all fairings,tank etc and get a custom gun metal/silver paint job.

Re: [email protected]#%!? STICKERS "AGAIN!!"

I just had my side panel replaced on the right side because of this. Honda covered it under warranty no questions asked. So it's happening again huh? Now i'm getting worried! If it happens again I will probably just trim it with an Xacto knife and run it...

Re: [email protected]#%!? STICKERS "AGAIN!!"

mine was coming off bwfore I had a chance to clean the bike so not that - think its just that some are not put on properly, but as I said before its a rarity imo.

200mph duct-tape!!

Re: [email protected]#%!? STICKERS "AGAIN!!"

Been so busy lately havent even been for a ride,called the bike dealer again about the sticker and they are piss farting around telling me know that they may not replace it!!!
they said it may be my idle speed is to high and it would be causing alot of heat around the sticker making it lift!?
[email protected]!% me swinging!! told em you replaced last time ok,serviced the bike(which you would check idle speed)and all good,now this is the service i get.Bike idles just above 1000rpm. The bikes 3800km old and has been to the shop for all servicing,even a extra 3000km oil change.Oh well,anyone want a CBR1000 06 for $15500 AUS,has a REMUS pipe and has never been dropped.
Think ill go back to dirt,KTM450 or a KTM300 2 banger electric start.
Disapointed with the honda dealer service.
