I haven't took the tank sticker off my bike yet because I didn't know if it was gonna leave a residue. Experiences? What have you guys used to get the sticky residue off?

Thanks guys.

I just heated mine up with a blow dryer and it came off really easily. Barely left any adhesive. You can use goo gone on it and it won't hurt it. I've tried alot of stuff. Surprisingly, wrench spray worked the best for me.

to me it looks like that tank sticker on my 02 has a clear coat over it. did the factory clear coat over the tank stickers on the 02 bikes?

I saturated the stickers on my 07 with windex, orange glow, and goo gone. Then, I actually used a rubber spatuala and brush and they came right off. Pretty ghetto way to do it, but it worked great!

Literally just got done taking the tank sticker off. I didn't use heat because I have no way of heating it up haha, but it won't leave a mark as long as you get the gunk off.

Ummm my sticker on the tank has a clear coat how are you guys getting these off without it looking really bad. I was unuware that you could even get them off without sanding and repainting your tank.

if you have an 08 it is just a sticker on top of the paint. it can be remove easy by letting it set in the sun for a while to heat it up then all you need to do is peal it off then remove the sticky with some wd40. or get a sticker custom made to enhance the looks of the factory one like i did.

I just took mine off last week. I just used a heat gun and then WD-40 worked pretty well for the little bit of residue left over
