I used a hair dryer on high heat up close on it... it gets the glue real soft.

Just go to your local auto store and look for "Sticker Off"

Its really clean and removes all the stickers and still leaves the plastics underneath lookin sexy and clean..

Probably the same thing as "Goof Off" that Tom suggested..

theres a number of ways to get the glue off but to get the sticker off best bet is like what everyone else said use a hair dryer to heat it up and it will peel off

Believe it or not, for Suzuki warning stickers, the opposite works better.

Put ice in a damp rag. Put the rag on the bike and get the tank / sticker cold. The glue will be less pliable and come up easier.
Wipe the rest off with 3M adhesive remover, available fron NAPA or some automotive paint places.

Patricks method is much safer around the fuel tank than hair dryers or heat.

Like Patrick said, use the 3M adhesive remover. I used Goof Off, Goo Gone and WD-40 and none of them worked very well for me. The WD-40 took lots of elbow greese and started to leave little scratches on my tank. I bought the 3M stuff at the auto parts store and you could wipe the stickers off with a tissue it was so easy.

funny, I was pulling the "use premium fuel" sticker off my tank last night and it was a pain! Used some goo gone once I got the sticker off to remove the glue.

Still one more warning sticker on there.....not looking forward to pulling it off but I will. Guess I'll try some of the methods suggested.
