Warning Stickers

Anyone tried to remove these?  I know the owners manual says not to try but ....  Saw a new Trophy today and it didn't have them on it.  Just the break in sticker.  Looked better.

That's the first thing I do with every new bike I bring home. I just peel back a corner with a fingernail and then peel the whole thing back slowly. I have a product called Goop that will safely remove any residue left behind. Finish with a little wax over the area. I took everything off except the Castrol sticker on the engine side case.

Don't remove them. Your bike will no longer run. In fact the engine may even blow up and of course the warranty will have been voided because the stickers have been removed.  If the engine does not blow up at the very least the paint will
 begin to peel and the electronics fail.  Many times both tires go flat at the same time. I've heard of one Triumph that made it to 476,000 miles but when the rain and sun finally eroded the decals away the bike simply turned to dust.

See, that's what I was afraid of.  Oh well, I removed them anyway.  Wish me luck.

Eucalyptus oil works a treat (good old Aussie product that is exported). A small amount on a cloth and wipe on. The oil softens the decal/sticker and its adhesive that makes removal easy and safe to the paint work.

PS: Eucalyptus oil is also great for relieving nasal congestion, and much more. Used by indigenous Australians for centuries :152:

Did the indigenous Australians have lots of warning stickers to remove??

I peeled mine off as soon as the bike had run in (I have a lousy memory so it was a useful prompt).
