Warning stickers - leave on or pull em off?

I'm thinking of cleaning up the look of the bike by removing all of the warning stickers. Do you guys leave 'em on or not? I'm planning on keeping this bike for many years, but still wondering if I should pull the stickers. Would you guys buy a bike without the warning stickers? Does anyone even READ the warning stickers?

take 'em off man. I only read my stickers once. I don't think anyone would say leave 'em on. I took off the ones in plain sight but left the tire pressure, youknow the one on the swingarm, on there. But yeah, take the ones off the tank and the windscreen.

I only have the tire pressure sticker on the chain guard. But even after years of checking the same tire pressure, I still look to see what the pressure should be.

That is in regards to the person selling it not the owner - the owner can wipe his ass legally with the warning stickers if he wants to - just not in public please.

Cap - Take them off - take them ALL off.. You will feel much better afterwards..

Something similar applies to warning stickers on bikes - the dealer CANNOT remove them for legal reasons but, you, the owner/consumer/buyer can do whatever the hell you want to.. It is a common misconception of people in regards to matress tags because they do not read and understand what it says other than "DO NOT REMOVE" and leave it at that..

Cut off your mattress tag already! Don't worry, you won't get locked up. As a consumer, it's perfectly legal to remove the tag from your own mattress. So why is it there? Well, the answer is somewhat involved.

Back in the 1900s, mattresses often contained a host of vermin and disease-carrying materials. To protect consumers, the government required dealers to post tags on their mattresses listing the contents. Later, the Feds added a warning to the content tag with the ominous message, "Do not remove under penalty of law," in big, black letters.

The move may have deterred duplicitous mattress dealers, but it only served to confuse consumers who didn't know that the threat wasn't meant for them. Confronted by fear of prosecution, consumers left the tags on their mattresses. Recently, the Feds addressed the misunderstanding by changing the label to: "This tag may not be removed except by the consumer."

Since then, the Feds have long abandoned the pursuit of tag-tearing merchants, though states like Texas still inspect mattresses for tags in stores. They're probably making sure their laws aren't full of fluff.
