Just wondering if these stickers will peel off or what? I know someone has done it before...

oh come on... just use a chizel and a hammer! You'll have them off in no time


hehe... use a hairdryer and your fingernail to lift up a corner. then slowly peel it off while heating. Done...

Use a hair dryer to heat the sticker. Peel it off.

Some of the other guys, I forget who, recommended 3M Adhesive, Tar & Wax Remover to get rid of the glue. I tried it and it works really well.

Hope this helps.

I used teh "Goo Gone" which claims to be non-abrasive and it worked great. It especially worked nice on the ones I had on my frame with the really stubborn glue. As far as the stickers I used a heat gun on low which is probably about the same as a hair dryer, just be really careful like everyone said, if you heat it too much you get a nice shiny spot... and that's best case! I learned that lesson watching a friend remove them on his snowmobile.
Good Luck!

3m adhesive remover doesn't work on Suzuki stickers, use the goo gone. Its the best shit to use, I removed all my stickers when painting and that is the best stuff to use to get the adhesive glue off.

I don't mind the srad sticker but I just want my bike a little different. I really like what hunter did with the sticker. But I think I might just go with all black for the back.

I guess I will try the hair dryer. And then get some goo gone for the rest of it. Thanks

i used a hair dryer and lots of patience as stickers never come off in 1 piece (more like 1000). i took off all of those stupid factory warning stickers). then grab you some goo-b-gone and you won't even be able to tell there were stickers there.

if it's on the gas tank, you'll need to give it a fresh wax job after applying the goo-b-gone.

You need a couple good finger naills, hair dryer to try and take em off in one piece, and goo-b-gone for when they all come off in thousands of bits and pieces.:crying

The goo-b-gone didn't damage my paint on the plastic or tank.

"Goo Gone" is the shit it works on so many things.

Hair dryer and a drivers license works well, unless you like burning your fingers. Then use duck tape to get the goo off while it's still warm, then alcohol for the rest. Still took about 45min to get them off the tank and polish it to new.:eek:hmy

If it's a painted surface, a little gasoline or lighter fluid will take the sticker and adhesive right off.

Also, I didn't have any GooBgone with me, but tried alcohol after getting the sticker portion off to get the adhesive, and didn't work too well...

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.

WD40 works- it also shines tyres!
