Does anyone have suggestions / pictures of alternatives to the FJR side case emblems? Found one link from years ago but the photo had apparently disappeared.

Maybe using reflective tape, a 3-D printer, or ??? Winter is getting too long for me to sit idle.

Thanks, Eric

Look at pre-2013 parts diagrams and you can get them on this side of the pond too.
Thanks for mentioning the Yamaha labels available as a Gen 2 part. Has anyone seen an alternative for the long skinny piece that is chromed metal on Gen 3 bikes and black plastic on Gen 2?

Not sure just which you prefer, and not sure how this compares with the OEM pricing since I'm not really shopping for myself. But I came across these while surfing. Thought you, and maybe others, might be interested and / or willing to take a chance.
I'm not the seller, not related to the seller, receive no financial benefit for referring to them and can't vouch for the quality of the item or the seller's integrity; I just do this for my amusement!!

(Edit) BTW, if anyone does buy these, please let the rest of us know how you like them.
If you like them, I might buy some of them, too !!

Not sure what the OP wants, his strips should already be black, just a matter of what emblem....... and AFAIK, there weren't any issues (of adhesion) on the black strips.

The ones Dan posted look good for those not wanting chrome on Gen3-up. I prefer the black personally. No logo would be just fine with me too.

Thanks Dan and Ray! Was wondering if there were any options to using the stock Yamaha trim strips. The link Dan provided for logo free black strips is the sort of information I was seeking. Has anyone seen anything done creative with the trim strips or the sides of the cases using reflective materials?

All I've ever seen until that link is replacement logos. I say keep the original black strip, and the logo.
As far as reflective goes, once upon a time there were some stripe kits that went on the front fairings, and there was a triangular piece for the upper part of the bags at one time.
Europe got a factory stripe effect as standard or may have been an option, I'm not sure it was reflective, probably not.

Ask Alex if he still sells the upper piece, I think so. Note also the decal kit for the front fairings Gen2. There are more photos if you dig in a bit.

Another one with what looks like a reflective patch on the bottom of the bags........ design idea.
