Seadub, stickers logos peel right offNice!
Question: Are the MFG logos cleared in, or could they theoretically be removed?
I’m all for giving a MFG proper credit where credit is due, but with body panels/fenders (plastics), I don’t care to be a billboard, especially if the MFG logo colors clash with the color scheme of my bike.
(I’d gladly tell anyone who asked @ the gas station, who made my kick ass plastics).

Btw, maybe a minor nit, but it looks from your photos like Maier chose to put the opening for the cowling mount grommet @ the 9 o’clock pos’n, instead of @ OEM 12 o’clock pos’n. (?)
That matters, by design, especially for those who want to use a Jimbo shield.
If the mounting tab gap is open to the back of the bike, even with the lower cowling mount bolt installed, the cowling will be far less locked into place than the Yamaha OE front cowling design.
The OE tab gap @ 12 o’clock & the lower mounting bolt work in concert to isolate any movement out of installed position.
With the gap open to the back of the bike, the cowl is more prone to easily pushing forward off the mount posts, if any type of light bump were applied to the back/top of the cowl toward the front of the bike.
Japanese design & engineering have intent. Details matter.
There are easy fixes for that, fortunately, because well, unless they’re cutting that gap post production, into a solid molded mounting ring tab (& could change location of the cuts), the molds are already made.
But, if Maier is watching this thread & it’s feasible, please consider correcting this seemingly minor, but significant design detail back to OE.
Wouldn’t stop me from buying. They do look great!

To be clear, I don’t know if Maier’s TW cowling will or won’t work with the Jimbo shield.I'll be keeping an eye on this as I currently use the Jimbo windshield and it it's confirmed it won't fit with the Meier plastics, that would not do.
