Decal removal.

Does anyone know a good way to remove decals? I Want to get rid of the flames that come stock on my bike(Ninja 250). I've never been a big fan of it and they look tacky. I am willing to accept the 15 hp lose.... lulz

They will come off better if surface is warm. Use heat gun or hair dryer to heat up area. Peel off. Use goo-off or similar to remove glue left behind. Clean and wax

Try peeling cold, if that doesn't work warm it a little. Find a temp that lets the adhesive release and don't get it any hotter.
If you do it right it won't leave much if any goo behind.
A little kerosene will remove any remaining or goo gone will work too.

Use a blow dryer to warm it up before removing but don't get carried away and try to bake your paint job. After a minute or two, peel off what you can. Clean off the residue with Goo-Gone.

No heat gun...hair dryer.

Do not get rushed or greedy. Heat trhe sticker back and forth several minutes to loosen the adhesive. Peel and continue to heat the area right behind where the sticker lifts up as you pull.

Like others said, goo gone the residue and wash and wax.

I agree mostly with above.

Tip: The slower you peel, the less residue is left behind if you do it right.

If you want it done fast you could always go about 80 and low side a couple times.

Just peel the decal off.
Apply diesel oil on a clean cloth.
Use that cloth to apply diesel to the residue.
Wait for about 2mins, use clean cloth to clean the residue. All gone! Paint is now shining.

Done. No other replies needed.

Close thread, and proceed with decal removal as directed.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
