Tank safety sticker removal
« on: October 13, 2014, 05:35:56 pm »
Evening Chaps (& Chapasses)

I'm looking to remove the safety stickers from the side of the fuel tank on my bike.

What is the best method to get this hideous sticker off?

I just peeled it off with my fingernail and gave the area a clean.

These should just peel off without causing any damage. Use a soapy solution to remove any film left.

Didn't have any problems removing these, just peeled mine off slowly rather than a quick rip there off.

Hope that helps.

Bit of soapy water and once you get an edge up with your finger nails (or your wife's) just peel off slowly and carefully, mine came off no problem

Not willing to take any chance I asked the dealer to peel them off!

Any stickers transfers I use a hair dryer. Once it gets soft just peel off carefully. Then polish as normal.
