I have the PM62 on my GT along with the rear crash bars...as many of you know, you have to be careful not letting the pipe go up in to the nut on the bottom of the crash bar and denting it. Well, I didn't know that and I got a small dent on top of the pipe and this was how I covered it up. I also adjusted up my shocks to the third setting to help keep it from happening again.....I used 3m velcro tape to attach the badge and it has worked very well so far.

Does the pipe stay cool enough for the Velcro tape? That stuff melting may smell and make a mess on your pipe.

So far it has. I've reached down there a few times during my rides and it's not too painful to touch it so I think I'm okay. It's been on for some time now and still looks perfect so we'll see.
