De- stickered my bike, bloody hell what do they use for glue?

I used a hair drier to warm the stickers & badges up before slicing behind them with the fishing wire and lots of wd40 to eat through the glue which was left & fair play it does do with a bit of elbow grease!
By the way “elbow grease” is available at all good retailers for only £3.95 lol!

Took me three Fekin hours to get the two model number stickers off of the side cases, the two fugly looking buggers off the tank and the Suzuki sticker off the arse end and the Intruder badges off the tank.
However looks a lot cleaner, good job done. Very Happy

Just read this. Did the white stickers on the tank, shortly after I got the bike - took ages to remove the glue - trying hard not to scratch the paint. I like to think mods can be reversed if possible for resale somewhere down the line maybe. Did the Intruder tank badges and C800 ones come off in one piece and could they be re-stuck if required? I know the white ones disintegrated into a million bits. If I do this, I think I might cover the Suzuki on the tail with a Welsh sticker or something.

There is a tool avaliable from paint and bodywork shops, this goes in a drill and has a round rubber end that removes the sticker and glue without damaging the paint work, used one of these to remove some pinstripes from an old mini, these had been on for years and were really hard but still came off, will try and get some more info, regards Doc Cox E=MC 2

That sounds useful Doc. I don't suppose my wire brush attachment would be a suitable alternative would it?

Lighter fuel will dissolve all kinds of adhesives, without damaging the background. They used to use it in design studios long before all this Apple Mac stuff Wink

Please do not on any account go near your bike paintwork with any type of wire brush, there would be tears, still trying to find the number for Chris,s tools this is the guy who sells it, a bit slow at the moment as have caught this virus that,s going around and feel like I have been run over by a steam roller, that,s why there has been no further progress with project Virago, stay healthy, regards Doc Cox

I'm interested in the lighter fuel - how about using it to remove stickers from plastic fairing. Don't have any lighter fuel - petrol any good ? Have used hair drier and white spirit before but it takes bloody ages!

Petroleum lighter fluid is no more than petrol without all the crap added, pure & as Sim says will work fine. I also used nail varnish remover on a kids plastic toy recently and that worked.
WD40 should be left to sit for 5 minutes before using it. You can get stuff in DIY shops called "sticky stuff remover" that will also do the trick. the thing to remember apparently is the longer you soak the area with things like WD40, baby oil etc, the easier it will come off.

Good idea with the petrol but if you add a lighted match to it you can garuntee that no sticker sticky will be left
