Recommend a cover up for the emblem on the rear fender?

Since I put the Kuryakyn blinker and license plate holder on the back...it's bugging me that half of the emblem is showing...I need something black to cover it up...I've searched but come up with nothing. Guess if worst comes to worst I'll get a black piece of vinyl and cut a piece out or something. Anyone know of a piece or a vendor that sells something made for this spot?

You can peel the emblem off - it's just glued on, but there is a dimple and rivet under the emblem. Might want to see if it'll be covered up by what you have there already. Or find something else that you like to cover it up.

Try this

Get yourself a piece of fishing line. Work it under the emblem and saw back and forth. It should peel right off. Then deal with the sticky two sided tape left behind. You will have that rivet head to deal with but it won't look as bad as half an emblem.
Cheers!

It will peel right off. It's just stuck on with double sided tape. It covers the recessed bolt that hold a bracket on the inside of the fender

HD also recommends waxed dental floss to remove emblems. I used the floss to remove the emblems on the gas tank and it worked great and only about $2 at Wally World.
