Just got a new bike recently, and I was wondering about all those stickers that it came with. I already removed all the warning stickers, but I was wondering if it's okay to remove the last remaining two. The first is a sticker located on the frame that indicates that the bike passes vehicle emissions standards of some sorts, and the second is on the swingarm and indicates tire pressures and such.

I'm pretty certain it's okay to remove them, but I just wanted to check to see what everyone else around here does.

Thanks in advance!

Just leave the VIN plate and you'll be fine. The tire pressure sticker, take that one off carefully and stick it in your trunk. That way you'll still have the recommended tire pressures.

Treat them like the tags on mattresses. The one on tire pressures is optional and may depend on whether or not you can remember the numbers but they're in your owner's manual anyway.

Be careful Comrade, the Sticker Police troll this site regularly. You will find yourself banished to a re-education camp if you persist with such openly reckless behaviour.

Those stickers are considered a stressed member, your swingarm may break but there's no sticker saying NOT to remove them so you can sue.

My first bike didn't even have the VIN sticker, it had come off when the owner was washing it (he gave me the fragments) but I never ran across anyone who cared.

I remove as many stickers as I possibly can off every bike I own.
Get Goo Gone from Canadian Tire (or any other parts store), and use it to remove the glue. Here's a tip: The five minutes it says on the bottle is bullshit for really old, stuck-on glue. Put it on, then walk away for 20-30 minutes. By the time you get back, the glue will come off as easy as a $5 hooker's panties. :D

You can remove the stickers from and SV no problem... but if you had a Kawi, you have to leave them on.

On a Kawi, the stickers hold the bike together :laughing

WOW, you guys kill me.
The recommended tire pressure depends on the tire manufacturer, not the factory tire settings. If you change the tires, the factory specs will change.

Yeah, right.

I heard a story about a certain rider on this board, with a certain red VFR. He pulled the stickers off and the bike imploded. He had to replace almost every bodywork piece, and then tried to blame it all on someone backing up into his bike.
