I hope so.... ordered them from AUSSIE. The price was a lot better going directly to Australia.

I noticed that too - about half what KZ900 gets. And I don't think KZ900 even ships them. Look like they were drop shipped from australia judging from the packaging.

It's better to be lucky than good any day! Those are beautiful. Let me know how you attach them. I'm leaning towards heavy duty double sided tape and E clips. Definitely don't want to lose something that purty.

Did yours come that way in just the little bags??? Mine were wrapped in like glass cleaner paper with a foam sleeve then cardboard folded over them in a double packed envelope about 1/2 inch thick. So mine cost like gold and shipped like they were too.....

Mine came in a padded envelope, in the little plastic bags sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard with the studs dug into the cardboard so they couldn't move around. Seemed to work.

I've used the Australian badges a couple of times now for the rear seat fairing on the Euro model. They are indeed lovely badges. The only downside, I found, was that the badges are totally flat but need a curve for the seat fairing. I tried very gently to bend one once but it snapped immediately, being die cast.
