Looking For A Favor From an '02 SP2 Owner

The '02 SP2 was the only year where Honda used an all black Honda wing decal on the left and right side of the gas tank. These decals are not available from Honda, nor from the reproduction providers, so I'm going to try to get some made. To do this, I need a picture of the decal with a tape measure next to it to show the height and width of the decal.

Can someone who has an '02 in stock paint takes some pics and post them to this thread?

TIA folks.

Don't know and don't want to assume. Want to make sure I know exactly how the two decals are different.

I'm unable to upload a photo unfortunately. The word "HONDA" IS 127 mm long, from "H" to bottom leg of the "A". Top of the wing from curve to tip is 137mm, measuring along the angled top. Top tip of wing on right to bottom is 97mm. Flat base of wing left to right is 58mm. I know a pic is what you are after. I'm sure someone will chime in. I can get more measurements if you want. There was a guy in Oregon selling a manual for a '02 on C/L last year. Price was a little steep, but he was including one OEM tank wing decal. I shoulda scarfed it up anyway! I used a soft seamstress type measuring tape. Luckily, it had metric on the back side.

2002 SP2
2005 750 Katana
2000 KX-500
1984 VT500 Ascot
1977 RD-400

Nice Old Harley you got there! Mind if I kick it over?

I have a new set of the tank stickers. I forgot about them. I just laid them over my OEM stickers on the tank and they fit exactly.
Maybe I could save you a lot of trouble. $30 gets them mailed to your door. Assuming lower 48 states. MN?

Pics and measurements coming...

Here some pictures. Wasn't sure about the top front wing radius, so I put the tape at the fattest part. The middle of the radius. Hope this helps.

These new stickers aren't OEM. I bought them online, can't remember the name for sure, SMSdesign? I've bought and used other replica stickers from them, been very happy.

Any painter will tell you there's a hundred shades of black.
The OEM tank gets the sticker put on before clearcoat - is what I understand - and my tank is like that too. Pretty hard to compare a sticker under 16 year-old clear coat vs. a new sticker under a transparent protective sheet. And I'm not going to peel it off.
It looks as close as close can be to me. All things considered.
