Frame Stickers

I was curious of everyone’s opinion on removing the stickers from the frame. I searched and was unable to find any posts about this.
I think I’d prefer the ‘cleaner’ look without them, but it also kind of makes the tubular frame stand out a little more. Also, I wonder if this would affect resale (not that I’m planning on selling her, but you never know!)

Also, is there a recommended method to remove them? I was thinking about hitting them lightly with a heatgun (on low), then using goo gone or Honda polish to get rid of the residue.


Opinions?

I believe there is an actual part number for all the frame stickers so if it were required for sale/resale it can always be replaced.

HEHE you may not need a heat gun as the frame already gets hot after a semi-long ride.

I found GOO-GONE to do a perfect job cleaning adhesive residue on just about anything without damaging the finish.

Yup...I just took them off ( except the compliance plate one, of course )

.....so the db sticker on the left, the other one on the right, and the one on the swing arm.....all went to the rear compartment, where it cant be seen, but can be accessed....well, thats my solution anyway.

They just peal off ok...but take a little care, as you may want to keep them....on the bike where I put them, or, say, in the service manual, or the ops manual.

Oh...yup, and I then hit it with wax....there's a film around the edges that needs to be polished....that's about it, brother, good luck....and it looks heaps cleaner

I can do photos if you want

cheers

On my previous bikes I ordered replacement stickers *just in case* but I'm pretty sure one or two of the ones on my 1098 have the VIN on them..

the silver stickers are simply generic....they dont need to be on the frame in view....plus, if you fit termies, then the db sticker is pretty useless, huh?

honestly, relocate them to the boot....they look nice there

I would just leave the one with your VIN number.
Or relocate that one in your trunk.

They come off with no problems, I pulled mine.

Yank'em off, remove sticker res. with Goo Gone and wax.

Yep, yank 'em! Looks way cleaner! I stuck a couple in my owners manual, and another one under my seat. They actually come off really easy and left very little residue on my bike, with the exception of the swing arm that is. That ones kind of a bitch, try a heat gun on it, I didn't and it took a bit of work.

Gone...Stuck them to some open space on some number-plate background backing (what the number plate sticker was attached to before I peeled it and stuck it on my dirtbike). Trimmed the excess and threw them in my box of take-offs. I would prob have to reapply them, then put a clear sticker over them to get them to stay stuck, if I ever needed to re-stick them.
