Never done it...but I have heard that a hair dryer or heat gun will soften the adhesive and make the removal much easier.

Just not too much heat or you will melt the tank.

I just replaced my tank and shroud decals on my 02 WR. Got a corner started and it peeled off with no resi do do. Wiped em down with some alcohol, installed new F effex kit with no troubles.
