Seeking advice with Cinelli stem badge

I needed a badge for what I incorrectly supposed was a Cinelli XA stem:



The back of the badge I purchased looks like this:



This I believe is an XA badge, and it obviously doesn't fit. I'm wondering what kind of badge I actually need, or maybe if I should just cut off the flanges and glue this badge in place, since the size appears correct. Obviously I'd rather have the right badge, but I expect finding one might be troublesome.

Your stem is likely a newer iteration of the XA stem. The badge you have is the one used for the 1R and earliest XA stems. Just cut the tabs off and glue it is place.

Silicone glue is actually very strong if you put enough of it on there. If there are no exposed edges on the badge after its installed, you may as well consider it a permanent installation as it will most likely take destructive methods to take it off if you ever need to......which I can't think of a reason why......

GOOP is a Urethane based adhesive. Should be plenty strong enough. I doubt it would ever come off.
