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

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...
