VIN is also stamped into the steering tube.

Ask the local DMV or licensing office for the real answer.

I am aware of the stamp so I can "prove its mine"

I was just hoping others may have done the same or at least looked into.

I s'pose you'd chop of your nose to make your face look sleeker, too.






Both are ridiculous ideas.

Devil's Advocate: Because it's a big ugly white sticker glued to a beautiful black frame. Honda had it right back in the '80s - smaller black-painted foil sticker.

I see your point. Mines tucked out of eyesight so doesn't bother me. Is it even legit to remove it??

Honest advice: you need to ride the bike more and stop looking at it. Unless youre making a show quality bike, nobody cares about the vin tag.

Oh I ride believe me, and I see most points, my thought is I have spent about $2000 to make it look better and its kinda like a tag on our clothes.

I like looking perfect lol

leave it, if you go to sell it it will look fishy if its torn off.

So tape a sheet of black plastic over it with some black tape.

Even if it's stamped on, I believe it's a crime to remove the sticker. Like tampering with the VIN on a car. But I could be wrong. Covering it up with tape or whatnot is as far as I would ever take it.

I know exactly what your saying. It looks like shit! If you don't like it take it off.

If it was a penalty of the law it would say so just like the tags on a matress
