I've got a tiny warning sticker attached to the front and rear brake disc rotors on my bike. I only noticed it today. Should it be removed?

It's similar to the one on shown on the rotor on this page:

I just want to double-check before I remove it.

    Remove it, probably to tell people to torque to a certain level or don't get oil on them.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Cheers oxoman. It was such a small sticker that I didn't see it before! I'll remove it in the morning.

    its to warn you not to touch it while its spinning etc as the sharp edges will lop your finger off...

    remove and bin
    My winter bike is exactly the same as my summer bike,,, but dirty...

  • Yeah, I had to use a magnifying glass to see the diagram on it clearly! Indeed, it was to warn you to keep your fingers away from the brake discs.
