when i picked up my new sled this fall the dealer told me that the sticker should go on the hood and that he was told that the placement may be an issue this season (more tickets issued for this). my question is that my other sled which i bought used (1 year ago) already had the sticker on the tunnel (i think that is what it is called) back behind me feet, is this an issue i should be concerned about? i live in New york if that helps at all.
One thing I hate is cluttering up my sled w/those silly reg. stickers.
I only put the state-shaped sticker on my sleds, not those annoying 3 inch numbers. I trim the excess white background off the sticker and stick it in the lower rear corner on each side of my windshield. The only problem w/this is if I have to replace the windshield, I have to buy new stickers. I've never had a prob w/the law, but I ride in WI and MI

you should just go ahead and put them on your belly pan.....last yr in the tug...right next to the redfield resivour...DEC stopped us and i ended up getting into a HUGE arguement with them on the sticker deal...cause on my dads xlt they were put on the tunnel by our dealer...and when they stopped us, they claimed its illegal cause then u dont have a certain # of ins of relflectiveness on your hood...a real load of BS!! the arguement was really over...if u get a ticket for having your reg. #'s in the wrong spot the ticket is 130 dollars...however...if you dont have your sled registered at all....its only 60...i just flipped on them...then they gave us this gay ### sticker to put on our windsheild..for further checkpts...got stopped at a checkpt little while later by the state troopers...pointed to the sticker...siad it doesnt mean a thing...moral of the story...just put them on the belly pan...-INDY

Where I sled: Now....Gulfcoast and back bay on a jet-ski
I used to just keep mine in the trunk. I was only checked once, and I played dumb(I'm quit good at it!LOL)and said I just picked up the sled and was waiting to put the stickers on when I got the sled cleaned up and heated in the garage so that the stickers would stick. Worked for me that time, but I have heard allot of other guys that were screwed similiar to INDY500XCSP and have since wised up. It sucks and it looks stupid, but just stickem' on the belly pan or anywhere else up front. ???

indy, thanks for the heads up. did your dad have to get a new sticker to put on the belly pan? and if so what steps did he have to take (like contact dmv or re-register the sled)? it looks like i may come into the same trouble with my 500xc sp.
Where I sled: Salisbury NY Home of the RIDGERUNNERS
When i bought my sled i didn't want to put the registration stickers on my hood. So i checked with afriend who happen to be a econ officer ,said they either had to go on the hood or belly pan. The tunnel is deffinatly a no no. Said it is more of a ticket they would write if when they stop you , you acted like an A hole. Same thing with loud pipes Said this year they relly intend to crack down on modified exhaust.
