Each one of us – motorcyclists – has at least a little bit of a drive to customize our bikes. I had to satisfy my need by creating a set of stickers for my Yamaha Tenere XT660.
Ready-made kits, which are available in stores, can cost over 150 euros. And they don’t suit my taste, really. So I decided to make my own design.
Hours of measuring, drawing, designing, test prints, and the day has come – the template is ready. Finally, I was able to wrap my bike and emphasize its cubic volume.
In my case, the graphic design itself is super simple. I wanted to brighten certain elements and add detail. I chose a simple gray color that doesn’t stand out too much from the original pearl-ish tank paint.
As a gadget freak and logotype lover, I couldn’t resist covering my bike with my favorite motorcycle accessories manufacturers. Yeah, that’s my taste… but each one of us has a different sense of aesthetics, so I’d like to share with you a ready-made template. This way, everyone who wants to can easily and basically for free customize their Tenere. Just put your graphics, print them on foil at a local printing shop (cost approx. 20 euros), and stick it in your own garage.
- Download the free XT660Z stickers template.
- Put graphics in a vector editing program.
(If you don’t know what’s going on, you definitely know a graphic designer who will help you for a small fee; you can also DM me.)
- Print with contour cutting at the nearest specialist printing shop.
(I recommend latex printing on a polymer film with a Comply Adhesive with micro-technology + laminate, but any adhesive film will be good, it is best to consult a printing shop and ask about a film for wrapping cars.)
- Put finished stickers on Tenere.
Your generosity is a great gift to me. If you appreciate my work, I encourage you to donate at least a symbolic PayPal transfer.

This is the first version of the stickers I made for the XT660. It is possible that some minor adjustments will be required, so please contact me if you have any suggestions regarding size and shape.
