Compliance sticker removal/replacement?

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by hugh50935, Mar 2, 2012.

  1. Hi all,

    I'm looking to get the frame on my Honda VTR250 straightened, which from what I gather, requires some heat applied to the frame during the straightening process.

    I noticed that my Honda VTR250 has a compliance sticker, and not an aluminium plate. The sticker looks like one of those shiny anti-tamper stickers.

    Obviously the sticker should be removed before straightening (or indeed anything anyone might do to the frame; painting, beadblasting etc), but how?

    I can't imagine that Honda designed the bike to be unrepairable and/or unpaintable?

    Can a replacement sticker be obtained somehow? Or is there a special way to remove them?

  2. you may need to contact someone who does compliance issuing of the stickers/labels
