I think some Acetone or thinner would help perhaps.. that stuff is strong and I think would help remove the paing quickly. If not then screw it... just paint over it. It will make the fairing just a bit thicker to have the extra paint on there, which is not a bad thing.

Re: painting your own bike

FYI, im a residential home painter and we strip front doors and sometimes interior trim pieces with layers of old paints and we have to strip it with aircraft stripper, too.

paint thinner will not get it off at all. it deludes the paint and can remove paint it it has a light, fresh coat. laquer thinner will do a better job but wont be the same as paint stripper. then just sand it down and add light coats of bond where you need it and not in large patches where the plastic is ok!

now that i remember, i spray painted a primer and yellow paint on my old zx6r and it up bad. i applied aircraft stripper and it took everything off inlcuding the bondo work i did to it previously.
