This outghta work for ya, I took the logo you posted into photoshop and used SI to make it huge then I used unsharp mask at 500% with a low threshold, then I converted to bitmap mode to get the hard edges then back to grayscale so i could save as a jpeg. So the final result is this, the kanji at about 10" by 10" at 300 dpi.

Are you sure that it's big enough?

Thanx for your help so-cal but it is still printing out funky. Does anyone know where a clean copy allready exists so you guyz dont have to go to a lot of trouble?
Obviously the one on the Bike is very clean... I was just lookin at my brochure again and thats the way i would like it.

yea, that ones aight but it still has some jaggies cause it came from not the best original, my dad wants a sticker for his truck made up so im gonna come up with a high quality original one of these days. Ill post it up when I get it. I may end up photographing one then tracing it in illustrator. Either way i will hook you guys up when i got a perfect copy.

What you need is a vector output file. I happen to have made one a while back in Illustrator. You can make it as big as you want and it will always be clear. Let me know if you want it.
