Is there an easy way to get those annoying buggers off without using a heat gun? Harbor Freight has good prices on their guns, but I also saw some good deals on Ebay. Does anyone have any experience with any of the Ebay deals? I don't want to end up with a piece of crap. Thanks for any help!

I bought a couple heat guns off eBay for $25...not real good quality, but if all you're buying it for is to remove stickers, it will get the job done. Good deal for $25, but I don't expect them to hold up...that's why I got the two for that price!

Oh, dont take those off, its like the mattress tags. The warning sticker police will come take your bike away. :thumbsup: I just peeled it off and spent the next million hours trying to get the residue off with denatured alcohol. :thumbsup:
The heat gun sounds like a good idea, better get to harbor frieght.

Hairdryer should work. If you are concerned with deforming the pastic, mix some dish soap in a spray bottle with water - spray and let sit for 10 or 15 minutes, should come right off. :thumbsup:

And the shroud graphics will peel off in a few months, but those stupid orange "no passenger" stickers would be on till 2014. :thumbsup:

if you do it corretly you won't deform the plastic, just a quick go over and bam the adheasion loses it tension and gives out! then just pick a corner up with your finger nail and it's off, but remember to use mineral spirts to get rid of the sticky crap!

i would know what i'm talking about. my dad and own a industral graphic shop i apply and remove graphics for a living!

soap does nothing but clean, next time try it in the shower!!!hahaha

There are a number of products available in grocery/variety/drug stores based on citric acid that do pretty well for removing adhesives, but one of the best I know of is WD-40.

Mineral spirits or lacquer thinner will do the trick.
