De-badging Tank on 09 FLSTC vs. Resale

I am thinking of removing the badges from the tank. They are are a PIA to clean around. Constantly grabbing the rag. I was warned that it would hurt resale....

What do you think?

Stock usually sells better than modified. If you can take 'em off without damaging anything, you could put them back on when/if you decided to sell it.

You can always replace the badges if you wanted to sell it, either with the ones you have now or with new replacements.



I removed the original badges off of my tank and replaced them with ones from an '06
