Polaris Warning Decals

I've read somewhere on the internet that if your warning decals/labels are damaged or missing that you can contact your Polaris dealership and they can supply those at no charge, does anyone know if this true?

Funny some people would care less, because some will de-badge a ATV of said warning decals anyway. I kind of like keeping my ATV's in fairly close to factory stock condition. I have two warning decals on my 08 Polaris Sportsman 500 HO that need replaced now.

Don't know about the FREE part, but all the decals except for 3 are still listed as available - if you ordered the required quantity of every decal, it would cost a little over $121 - cant do anything about the discontinued ones

The FIRST thing I do is get those ugly stickers off any machine I have. Don't know why you'd want to put them back on?? The ONLY reason they are put on to start with is because of manufacturer liability. I had them ALL off my new 2018 Sportsman 1000 within 30 minutes of getting it home.
Do you leave the stickers on your new refrigerator, TV or washer?

Good point! I will start removing the stickers from the fridge tonight!!!! The one on the TV screen has always created a blind spot.

Do you use a heat gun or chemicals to get off the glue without messing up the paint?

When warm you usually don't need anything other than something like a plastic spatula or putty knife or a fingernail to get a corner started and then peel. If they're hardened and stubborn, a heat gun or hair dryer (not much) to soften them a little and they should peel right off. They come off real easy when new. After they get old and hard it takes a little more effort sometimes but they'll still peel off. Use some Goo Gone on a soft rag to get any residual adhesive off.
I'm not sure if it'll work on the fridge and TV but it should lol.

I've always heater the backside of the plastic if possible,.. it releases the glue bond instead of heating the decal and having it tear. Heating either works,.. but as mentioned the older the decals the more difficult it can be.

My refrigerator must have at least 1000 more stickers on it than when it was new - can't hardly even find the energy star efficiency label for all the damn stickers - if it weren't for grand kids, my refrigerator might not be disguised as a trash can.

LOL... Yep, my fridge has become the bulletin board for grandkid art. The 5 year-old basically learned to count and spell with the magnetic letters/numbers set I got him a couple years ago.

Ha,ha, those warning stickers really don't bother me being on the ATV. What's bugging me is this one warning label on the fuel tank that's all messed up to where I can't read the warning, it's a fairly lengthy warning. I guess over spill gas got to it from previous owner. I'll have to look it up to know what it says now.

Actually the energy saver yellow sticker is still on my hot water heater in the closet,but I have to admit I did remove that under federal law do not remove label off our bed mattress, some times I like being a bad boy.
