Yep, AG got it. Many of the ATV's now don't have removable stickers. Not sure if they are silk screened on or what, but you can't get them off. So some of us have put that non-skid tape over them. That not only hides them, but it also gives your feet a place to go when going through the deep water/mud.
wow this mod has been in the closet for a while, yep did to the wifes 500 so she doesn't have to get her feet wet or when we are just sitting there bsing she can put them up and plus she doesn't scratch the plastic also.
