    Default Removing some useless warning stickers

    This may be a question best for Jan (MadKaw) or Ray (aaw). David (SF), you sell any chemical?

    Help me out guys. There's got to be a better way to remove all those silly warning stickers off your bike than to just use a heat gun and your thumb to rub them off. Those stickers may be silly, but they certainly won't come off without making sure that they leave a blister or two on my thumbs. Try two blisters a piece on both thumbs.

    There's got to be some kind of chemical out there that you can apply on top of the shinny protective clear to dissolve and break down the sticker without causing damage to the tank to fairings.

    I usually let the bike sit in the sun to soften them up. Also those Italian girls love stickers.

    Houa, please re-read. I said both thumbs have blisters each. Therefore, that leaves 8 fingers.

    Tell me about it. There was like 7+ stickers. 2 under the front windshield fairing. 3 on the tank. 1 on the right front fairing. 1 or 2 on the swing arm. 1 under the tail. and more.

    I'm glad I didn't have them in spanish or other multiple languages too.

    well, I wouldnt rule out a heat gun. or hair dryer, they get nice n soft and come off in one piece.

    Jan, I used a hair dryer. It helped but the sticker still needed finger nails and thumb to rub off the sticky glue residual. That was the hard part. Especially when the sticker wouldn't stay in one piece.

    If all else fails, just buy some after market fairings from china. They don't have stickers on them.

    I still think a hair dryer is the best. Just use gloves if it's too hot.

    WD-40 works surprisingly well on some sticker residue. If not that, I usually turn to goo gone or goof off. Either are available at a supermarket or drugstore and work well most of the time. Then a very fine polish or wax for the final clean up.
