I do this after every couple of rides. It works great. Go real slow with the heat so you don't melt the plastic.

I used my wife's blow dryer. It took a little patience but it worked okay. It didn't get it 100 percent, but it looked a heck of alot better than right after I crashed.

If you are very careful, and I would suggest practicing on a junk fender, you can also do it with a propane torch. Just apply a little heat and keep it moving.

...We don't need to discuss not doing this to or near the plastic gas tank, do we? Same goes for a heat gun...
