I was just looking at my bike and noticed how much all the stickers stand out. chain gaurd, gas tank, side farings etc.. how the hell do you get these things off safely? They suck.

Ok its easy, use a blow dryer and get them real warm then just get it started on one end. Warm again then remove the heat and count to 10, then pull the sticker slow.. All but 2 will peel right off. The emssions and one with the oil info/etc are much harder and will take about 10 mins each to keep peeling part by part. Once off use WD40 to remove the left over glue and you're all done..

I tried the hair dryer first but it pissed my old lady off when I ran it so much it died lol

Went to Eagledrivers shop and got his heat gun and used brake cleaner on a rag to kill the leftover residue. Just make sure if you use brake cleaner you DO NOT spray it on anything and let it sit. After I hit the tank/frame I immediately polished it.

"Goo Off" made by Quickie or something like that from Home Depot worked for me. It was still hard but it had a chemical reaction to the gummy residue and did not harm any of the painted surfaces. I actually used it to remove all my decals (I have already gotten sh** for it, but that's what I wanted to do) and I was able to remove every decal in about 3-4 2hr evening sessions.

I used a hair drier and Go-Gone and I got them all off pretty easy. I left the valve adjustment sticker on but the others are off and it makes the bike look better.
