I will add to the list and explain
1. Hair Dryer
2. Plastic Card (Credit Card)
3. Adhesive Remover
I recently took the 750 stickers off the rear of my 2002 GSXR and the red R's off the lowers quite easily, with a blow dryer and a plastic credit card (to lift the edge of the stickers without scratching the paint) the process of heating the stickers to the optimal temp. takes a bit of practice. heating the sticker first, then lifting works best, because the metal or plastic behind the sticker absorbs and holds the heat while you are lifting, heating while lifting causes the already lifted portion of the sticker to over heat and soften too much causing the sticker to tear when lifted. Then I used a paint safe wax/adhesive remover available at most auto parts stores for the residual. After rewaxing the area the paint on the rear cowl has a distinct line where the stickers used to be, but you can only see it from up close. The effect from 8 feet or more away was well worth the slight imperfection. The "Rs" I replaced with chrome "Rs" I ordered from the Suzuki factory but the lowers showed no sign of the stickers before reapplication.
