Labels on buttons

I have a 2007 K1200GT which sleeps everyday in my garage but I ride it almost everyday to and from work, I live in Colorado where we have more than 300 sunny days a year because of this the labels printed on the buttons have fade away, I want to know where can get stickers or means to re-print the labels, I'm about to sell the bike to get a newer one and I want to make sure this is not a deal breaker for the possible buyer.

Don't believe those are stickers. The lettering is painted on.

I agree, they are painted and the UV rays have fade them away any ideas on how can I have them re-painted?

Only way to make it look original is to replace the switch gear. You can sometimes find used ones on eBay.

We have 300 rainy days a year in Denmark, but our labels are pretty ;-)

Worn control button as deal breaker for motorcycle purchase? No.
Exploding final drive or ABS Modulator or ESA shock for $2,000 each. Probably.
