Change Factory Lettering Color?

I'm picking up my new Black and Gray 2017 N1K today. Does anyone have recommendations for replacing the Kawi green lettering (Ninja & 1000 lettering standard on the tank and plastics)? Are those decals? I'd prefer either gray or red...

I think the tank pieces are under the clearcoat, so they will be tough. On the older bikes, the fairing pieces were decals.

The "1000" on the die panels is vinyl, easily removed with a little heat and some Goo Gone.

The "Ninja" on the tank...............that ain't coming off, unless you are willing to remove the tank and give it to a body shop for them to cut out the decal, and re-clearcoat the tank.

I've looked at pretty much every "Ninja" decal out there that might cover that cheap POS decal on the tank, and there isn't one. I'm planning on making some custom ones.

Wow, gosh I'm dumb...

Thanks for your help guys. Picked up the bike just now... the lettering is gray and not green... yes, I am colorblind. Appreciate all of you and the good info you all post.
