Safety Stickers / Sticker Removal

I see that a lot of people on here have done the "Sticker Delete" ...

What did you use to get them off? Did you need a compound or some type, or a scraper?

I am going to remove them from my new Sportsman but I wanted to get some ideas on removal first.

(Also, these stickers are not needed for insurance purposes are they?) .

I/we used a heat gun, then you will need some GooGone, works wonders on the sticky stuff left behind.

Yeah... i don't know what kinda money everyone else has, but if someone steals it or smashes into it on an ATV run I don't want to have to pay thousands of dollars to fix it. The last thing I want to do is give them a reason to deny my claims. LoL

Mine didn't come with any "Do Not Steal or Smash Into" warning stickers - I think you're good with the insurance company.

I tend to use WD40 to loosen up any remaining adhesive and scrape it with an old credit card or one of those phoney cards you get every week in the mail.

The stickers ONLY purpose is to try warn you of the obvious to protect you from yourself! They cover the manufacturer from liability if you don't have enough sense to know better than to stand up backwards on the seat after drinking a fifth of gin and taking 14 pain pills while holding the throttle wide open and texting your girlfriend and at the same time riding a wheelie through a major intersection during rush hour traffic!!
Does not and CAN NOT have anything to do with insurance related coverage during normal operation/ownership.

HAHHAA If I had that sticker, I would actually leave that one on there.

If you have access to one steal you're wife's/ girlfriends hair dryer they work good then use wd40 to get rid of any remaining glue... The first atv I bought took lots of work to get them off but the last one I got lucky and they peeled Roth off without any extra work

Sounds like a plan. My old lady has a few hairdryers and I heard her talking to one of her friends about how strong one of them is. I'll grab that one tomorrow and see if it loosens them up. I have WD-40 and I have that GooGone that that Mark suggested. That Goo Gone says it is safe on plastics, so i'll try that first. If it does not work i'll go with the WD.

The real annoying part, is that one of the things that sold me on Polaris, is their Pro-Star engines. From some of the small engine mechanics, and other people I have talked too, they say that the Pro-Star engines are very reliable, and are one of the most powerful engines made, pound for pound. So i was happy to get that sweet Twin Cylinder Pro-Star engine... Nowhere on the bike does it say "pro-star" There was an 850 just like it at the dealer when I bought mine, but it wasn't an SP, and it had te pro-star sticker on the back storage door, and one on the side of the engine. This thing has NONE of them. Kind of annoying, but not a real big deal.

I think the Prostar emblem is a sticker and they probably peal right off.

Here's the part number. Get the dealer to order you some. Then you can peel the idiot stickers off and put the Pro Star stickers on for a one-of-a-kind look.
