Removing old graphics

8 posts in this topic

It's finally time to replace stock '00 WR400 graphics. Any word on the best solvent for removing the glue without melting the plastic underneath?

You will probably get 100 different ideas on how to do this, but I always find brake cleaner to take gluey residue off anything espically plastic.

So peel, and wipe!

Try a hair dryer and be careful of the gas fumes. Just a little heat on the surface and peel it off.

Toluene if you can find it. This is what they use in the label manufacturing industry. It can be found at most petro-chem suppliers. Zippo lighter fluid also works great. Try it on a small unseen area first, not sure of it's affect on plastic.

I use a blow drier and peel it off. Then use the adhesive side to pull off any residual adhesive and then use contact cleaner.

The local shop also carries "sticker off", never tried it though.
