now you're trackin'! it "brightens" those old dull tyres, it also forms a bonding agent that enables the contact patch to expand releasing molecules ultimately increasing traction.

if you are so unsuspecting and naive to believe this is; I apologize for giving you the benefit of the doubt.

Used WD40. This stuff works wonders. Little wax on the spot and I'm good to go.

Took the warning sticker off the gas tank on my new 06' GSXR6.

After the WD40, drive your bike over some ice.

Re: How do I take off these stickers?

I used some stuff called "OOPS" comes in an aerosol can and bought it at Wal Mart. Workd awesome to get rid of the left over glue still on the fairings.

Thumbs up Re: How do I take off these stickers?

For people looking to try the goo gone, carefully peel the outer plastic coating off (fingernail works well). Take a rag and really soak a spot larger than the sticker and hold it on there. It should be saturated but not dripping off. Let it sit for 10-20 minutes, apply again, let sit, and if you want apply again. With the outer coating off, goo gone more or less melts the sticker, it becomes very sticky and just peels right off. Another tip that I might get flak for it to use a very cheap ice scraper, the ones for a buck or less. The edge should be completely smooth. If you do not apply very much pressure, it is very handy when removing the sticker after the goo gone soak. With the sticker all gooey, very light and smooth motion with the ice scraper, comes right off.

You will probably want to take a paper towel with a bit more goo gone and light swirl around where the sticker was. This helps remove the outline of the sticker. You'll never be able to tell there was a sticker there!

Re: How do I take off these stickers?

I knew all the info above, but I'm a lazy ass. While taking breaks from working on my bike (usually in very cold weather), I would start scratching and peeling little pieces of the stickers every couple days or so. Cold as hell + bare hands made for some major pain underneath my fingernails after every session. i always thought about going upstairs to get the blow dryer, but never got around to it. After about a month of this shit, I finally peeled the last bit of the stickers off. Then I used bug and tar remover to get the adhesive bits off. This is probably one of the most retarded ways to do it, but it worked. It's also a fun project while waiting at stoplights.

Re: How do I take off these stickers?


This stuff, big kevs goo remover is EXCELLENT for removing sticker gunge (some asshat badged my car of every single stinking badge, used big kevs to tidy up the residue before buying new badges). Big kevs goo remover is based on citric acid, which seems to be the best thing to remove stickers & associated residue, closely followed by eucalyptus oil and them the other commercial products.

That other goo begone or whatever it is mentioned earlier is probably based on citric acid like big kevs stuff.

Goof-Off. I believe that is the name of the stuff. It will get just about anything off.

Re: How do I take off these stickers?

not the tank ones.. just be careful, easy to scratch the tank.

tank and the ones under the handle bar are pretty easy. i haven't tried the bodywork ones.

Re: How do I take off these stickers?

They're all super easy to take off. Just remember you have to be patient. Use a hair dryer or heat gun and goof-off. They even make a dedicated automotive goof off now that is a little more plastic/paint friendly. Heat up the sticker, peel it off until there's nothing left but adhesive residue, then use the goof-off. After that get some good bike spray cleaner/polish and go over those areas to get rid of the sticker ring.
