HELP! Stickers under Lacquer?

Hello guys! Nice to meet you all,new member here! I have a Tona 675 2007' from July 2018. I had a crash with minor cosmetic damage to the fairings etc and i decided to paint the bike completely. My question is this. Are the oem stickers under the clear coat? Are they made to be under the clear coat? I mean does the genuine ones come under the clear coat? Im asking cause the guy that's gonna paint the bike asked me so and i didnt know and we dont wanna mess up the original stickers cause they are frickin expensive to buy. I payed more than 200 euros.. If someone can help would get me out of troubles.

I'm pretty sure the fairing decals are over the top - I removed the large DAYTONA from the lower fairings of my 2012. The tank decals are definitely under the clearcoat, probably because that area is subject to possible direct gasoline exposure. You can tell by trying to catch the edge with a fingernail.

This is correct, at least on my 2012 it is.

Honestly, if I had a choice I would do under the clear coat in any case. It will look better, and for longer, and stay cleaner— but ask your painter if they need to be a special material decal or something. Worst case scenario you spray it over and the paint melts the decals and set you back a penny or two, which would be bad but recoverable of course. If you don't want to risk it over the paint will work just fine imo.

If you're using a 2k clear, it should be fine. Easy enough to test on some scrap.
