PostSubject: Removing sticker and maybe debadge   Tue Jun 30, 2015 6:31 pm

On the rear fender i have a sticker, ive not really looked at it but i think it suggests tyre pressures.
It looks daft, but i never got round to taking it off.
What method will get it off easiest without damaging the paint?
I also thought about debadging the tank. but ideally i'd want to put the badges on again if i ever sell the bike (buyer might not like it debadged), is this a simple process?

Thanks

Hairdryer to warm the sticker and it should slowly peel off, it'll probably break up due to it's age, then turps,petrol or sticky stuff remover on the residue, Tank Badges, Fishing line pulled down the back of it in a sawing motion to get through the double sided tape, then hairdryer and same again.

Lighter fluid is a good solvent for removing the residue adhesive.

Definetely the hairdryer don't get it to hot you don't want to bubble perm your paint, i use solvent based panel wipes to remove the residual glue. You'll most probably find a different shade of paint underneath
