I am about to remove the ugly warning decals, etc from my bikes tank and rear swing arm. What I dont get is why they put the VIN/Year sticker right on the side of the frame, highly visable and unattractive. On my last bike, the same decal was up near the steering head and less visable.

Anyone remove theres? I dont want to remove it if it is the only easy way to read the vin of the bike and frame.

I think that sticker is required (like on mattresses)

On my F4i I moved the sticker down under the side fairing so you could still see it if you looked behind the panel, but it wasn't visible generally.

That sticker is much more than just the VIN. It is the manufacturer's statemant of origin and if you remove it, it may be difficult to register if you sell it. Especially if it sells out of state.

Not true All they need is the VIN # off the neck.. But i would keep the sticker on... Its a good idea

In Ca it is very difficult to register an out of state bike without a statement of origin. I went through this when I bought a used F4I out of state years ago that had this sticker removed. Eventually got it registered but it was a pain in the ass. Maybe it's just a California thing.
