List of ingrediets needed:
1.) Hairdryer
2.) Bottle of Goo Gone
3.) Patience


Just use the dryer to heat the sticker and then SLOWLY peel it off. Use the Goo Gone if there is any remaining sticky stuff.

Did I stress patience?

Good luck!!

I just heated mine up a bit with a hairdryer and peeled it up with my nail. Peel back nice and slow, and you should be good. I didn't need to use any type of adhesive remover.

This same technique could be used to remove ugly "ZX-6R NINJA" stickers too....for example.

Any kind of automotive bug and tar remover will work just as well.

Works good. I also removed the two labels on the frame, warning on rear suspension, sticker pointing to FUEL(duh !), DOT reflectors, and replaced ugly plastic chain guard (w/big sticker) with an aluminum one. It took 15 minutes for the whole job. The U.S. versions of these bikes are the only ones with all this junk as far as I can tell.

I also agree. Another adhesive remover called sticker shock works well.

I peeled mine off, then there was a little sticky stuff left over -- I just got some carnuba wax, and waxed over it and that stuff came right off.
