Side cover sticker removal

Hey people! I just bought a barely used 2017 SCR950, loving it so far. I just really don't like the looks of the round side covers, has anyone simply peeled the stickers off?

If so, how does it look, is it just all-black glossy? And what did you use to remove it?

What else has anyone done to the side covers to change the appearance? Other than making or ordering custom ones, which I don't plan on doing at the moment....

Thanks!

I think a few people may have simply lost some down the road......
Seriously though, someone will be along with suggestions shortly.

You talking about ME, Ben? Here we go.... I have removed the side covers and mounting brackets. Some say it looks like some of my " bits " have fallen off. It's still a work in progress. One of the pics shows a mock up of a side cover mounted inside the frame rails. Maybe this winter.... Jevers

Jay will sell you a set of leather, custom-made bags that cover the covers, too! ;-)
I rather like his simple panel replacement idea, though.
Paint to preference or leave it bare metal for "character".

Hah! Yeah, I got a guy over in Elgin that makes them for me. I feed him a steady diet of big fat cigars and he 🤣cranks out the bags! Jevers

Haha you guys are great, thanks for the welcome messages.

I actually don't hate the naked look at all! Only thing is I thought those covers served some kind of minimal protection for rain and dust, but I haven't even had the chance to open them up yet and see what's under (I believe a tool case and maybe the battery not too far?).

If the offer for leather bags is real I would be very interested to see them! Even if it's not real... would love to see what kind of custom bags people use on their SCR.

Remove the left cover and a secondary cover is accessible.
The ignition key unlocks it and therein lives the tool kit.
Fair warning: Not every SCR950 got the same set of tools.
No one knows why. I got fewer with mine (VIN ending in 00035) while others
seemed to get a more complete kit.
Also, there's a single 10mm bolt from that side holding the front of the seat down.
Remove the bolt and carefully lift up and forward on the seat - taking care not to hit the tank - and it comes right off.
The battery is accessible-ish after you do that and remove the right side cover.

Oh, the offer for leather bags is real. Contact Krixtoph and he will set you up. He makes some nice stuff, must be the cigars! BTW, one more thing regarding the side covers, in order to remove a side cover, you have to remove a screw. In order to remove the screw, you need to access the tool kit which is behind the side cover. Yamaha should have included a screwdriver on a key chain. Jevers

Thanks for the kind words, and honestly it's the beer that @Schu buys me haha! I've been cranking out bags all year for the SCR950, and I guess I've made so many that my supplier ran out of the type of leather I use! I'm not willing to skimp on quality so production has been halted until further notice, @nichon16 . However, if you want to take a look at what I make, you can click the links below (I also make watch cuffs, wallets, and belts). If you're interested let me know what one you'd want and what color so I can at least get started on some of the components for you.

**Note that I have enough leather to make 1 shortbag, or 1 underseat storage tote**

Weeeeeelllllll, you really just need a quarter, or a sturdy key to get the Phillips screw loose if you're in a bind.

Mine had a **** hex key screw in it, so even a quarter wouldn't do the trick. Ended up ordering some thumb screws off Amazon so I can access it easily. One of these days I'm gonna buy the under seat storage bag from the guy on here now that I have way access.
