There are stickers plastered all over the Valkyrie. I think they look weird and detract from the stealthy appearance of the bike.

The ones on the sides of the frame are easily removed, as are the ones on the fuel tank. (It is possible to scratch the clear coat finish on the fuel tank, so be gentle. If you do get a few scratches they will buff out easily.)

The stickers around the steering part of the frame are surprisingly easy to remove. They stick out like a sore thumb IMO and are not required, since the VIN is stamped into the head tube. You just need to remove them slowly and carefully.

If the stickers sit on the bike for a few years they might leave a darker mark when they are removed since they block some of the UV light that fades things, so removing them early is a good idea, if that is your thing.

These 2 pictures show the front of the frame where the 2 big stickers were. You can see the stamped VIN in the second picture.

Look good, the labels can be removed more easily if needed by setting bike in the warm sun for a couple of hours before.

Or I have used a heat gun set to a Low heat setting and keep it moving (you just want to warm it some and NOT over heat it) as you dont want to damage your paint.

Hair dryer helps with removal, similar to heat gun. I applied decals with tire pressure info on back of removable panel for reference later if needed.
