It didn't come with the yamaha logo on it, so I'm wondering if it isn't clear-coated. It's shiny as hell, but I can't tell if it's just a really smooth coat of paint. You really have to buy the logos separately then run another clear coat over the who thing? Personally, I could care less if there's a logo or not, but I can't imaging it costing yamaha more than 20 cents to effing put the logo on at the factory. Free advertising, common! Oh well, even with my current tank with the yamaha logo, I still get asked once a week what kind of bike it is. Y-A-M-A-H-A isn't spelled out anywhere on the bike, so people don't have a clue.
