What is thy bidding, my Master :020: :008:



Thank you for the pic. Looks great man!  Sorry to be a pain but how easy to peel off and did you do the tank gas sticker as well? lol  Any chance of before pic for comparison? No interest in putting sticker back on. Once off thats it lol.  Thank you again for helping out a forum newbie.

Not a pain at all :001: If you look around here long enough you'll see I already posted a lot of questions myself as I am still learning :028: What I did is leave the bike out in the sun for a couple of hours and they peeled off real easy. Just lift up a corner and slowly pull so it doesn't rip and you don't leave too much residue behind. The little bit of residue I had to remove I just used a microfiber cloth and a little of rubbing alcohol to buff it off. I also removed the safety sticker by the gas cap. Another way to soften the glue a little is use a hair dryer or heat gun but don't put it too close to the tank and plastics. Just enough to warm up the decals.

Thanks for the info and the pics. Really going to help me get an idea of which ones to pull off or not.  By the way.. where did you find rubbing alcohol lol

The wheels need to be black.  Just too much blue for me.
