Sticker removal

Whats the best way to remove stickers? I used a razor blade to remove a sticker from my back fender but it scratched up the plastic. Theres one on the top of the tank that I want gone and another on the fender but I dont want any more scratches. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

those stickers suck. I had to basically peel them all of one little sliver at a time and then got the glue residue with a citrus cleaner. I'm sure there is a better method. those stickers come off in a couple layers. if you get both layers at once your good but if not.....

bump! I was just about to ask the same thing. I got the thin film off that covers the decals then tried goo gone but to no avail. Thinking of just covering them up with new stickers if no one has any ideas...

Heat. Try a hair dryer. It loosens up the glue pretty well and the stickers usually peel right off. Don't leave it in one spot too long though!

I use a heat gun, hair dryer works too.

heat the whole area nice and evenly, dont burn it, dont get to close just warm it up good. once its really warm then start at one corner of the sticker and it will generally peel right off in one peice

Here you go...

Goo gone. Get it at any hardware store or I think I saw some at Wal Mart. Just slop it on the sticker, start working a corner, after just a bit the sticker will slide roght off.

Sorry to hear you scratched her up, i did the same on my gas tank sticker. I was too eager when i brought it home and went at it with a razor and scratched it up. I left the other one on.

Back in the day I used dental floss and a heat gun to remove decals. And if your trying not to scrach plastic or paint try using a plastic razor blade, not a plastic scraper but real plastic razorblade.

I sell the crap out of them and I use them on my cars and bikes

I have removed stickers and graphics before with a pressure washer and then I cleaned the remaining adhesive residue off with Goo Gone.

i use an iron with lots of steam (and a cloth underneath). makes the stickers nice and soft.

Thanks guys. I'll try the hair dryer tomorrow. Im not too worried about the scratches in the rear fender since its just plastic but I need to be super carefull with that tank sticker. When I tried pealing the fender sticker it came off in little slivers. I had a buzz and got impatient. Lol

+2 on the heat. Clean up the residue with a little WD40 and you're good. :ride:

Speaking of stickers Bryan. Why no more TT stickers with orders? The last three TT orders I made had no TT stickers. :ride:

I used really hot water on a wash mit placed over the sticker for 3 min...Re-saturate and heat again. I was then able to use a credit card to lift a corner without scratching the suface...The whole thing then peeled off and I cleaned up with wd-40 and immediately washed the area.
