So, do all you guys just tear these off and toss em. The front ones were about 25% adhered. I used 3m spray to salvage them. Billion dollar company with walmart stickers on their machines. WTF. This little 570 rips. Love it mechanically.

Mine are still on with no pealing at all, sounds like you got a Rzr that was assembled on a Friday.

3M sprays are like old contact adhesive. Supposed to put them on both surfaces. let them flash off and when they touch bingo. Spray one only it don't wrk right.

All (3) of mine came off. Red and amber don't go with my graphics.

I got both sides good. Use the stuff at work. Going for new ones.
Better off with new ones, BS that they're peeling already, what the hell?

Same thing here, just used gorilla glue, that was miles and miles ago. Stuck on good now. Use sparingly, a little dab will do ya.

what was the intention of those? DOT compliance or something?
I can understand a 53' tractor trailer but a RZR? Can't drive them in most places anyway.

Are they required in some states?

Clean the plastic with alcohol and replace the reflectors.

I'd rather have all my reflectors on so other people can see me at night. Especially if I'm parked with the lights off.

Mine fell off the first couple weeks. Maybe some bad batches of adhesive. Could understand it if I used a pressure washer.

Not sure it's the stickers fault... The panels are made from an PE base product which is formulated with slip aid and by it's nature is a self releasing product. Tough to really get anything to truly bond to it, stick maybe bond no. My reflectors were all gone after one trip on a flat bed trailer, just gonna leave them off.

in the old days they used a few % talc in some resins. Who knows.
Funny though most do stay on including mine which were about the only psa backed stickers that did put up a fight and particularly that says something since the black has a stipple pattern that's harder to adhere to.

I used to have to deal with such mysteries and often the answers were found by going down on the assy floor and watching.
Presuming the stickers are good and knowing these are assembled up north where it gets cold. Some one is peeling those reflective stickers and putting them on. Suppose the plastics came out of a cold box. You guys know jit. Fresh box comes over and the is a moisture issue when they hit ambient air.
I'm guessing the fronts are at a sub station where the headlights go in also.

Days like that you went over to Betty, explained it to her and asked her to bring this or that in earlier so it had a chance to warm up. You know. If Betty gave a damn you were a hero. If Betty was off that day....stickers fell off.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't get that cold where mine was made, and I bet Jose put mine on.

Rear ones peeled off mine also, '12 s. Both sides of the rear box decals are bubbled and peeling too. They did warranty them but since I don't want to take a 300 mile round trip to the dealer he just sent them out and I get to put them on. What's the best way to put the rear box decals on? Can I use water/soap solution? Thanks.
