The Decal Thread...

I really want to remove the big ugly "V-Strom" sticker off my bike. What have you guys found to be the best way to remove BIG stickers?

Why did you put a 'V-Strom' sticker on your KLR for ? :|


Try using a hair dryer. Getting the adhisive soft and peeling it off slowly,

if some glue stays, try "goof-off" to clean that and then a wax and buff.

Yeah, the hair dryer works, just peel the decal off real slow, start at the corners and work towards the center.

I took all the warning stickers off my Strom the same way.. I left the big stickers on, though..
WD 40 does a good job of removing adheasive, too.

Removing Decal

Greetings Joe!

If you haven't removed your decal yet, the hair dryer works great. I used it to remove the dealers stickers off of my KLR. I don't like giving free advertisement. I also used it years ago on my Toyota removing the TOYOTA tap off the tail gate.

Keep the heat on it as you pull slowly.

Here is a crazy one. I was told by a dealer that they use peanut butter to take off stickers. The oil in the peanut butter soaks through the sticker deteriorating the glue. Just put the peanut butter on for a period of time (Unknown) then according to their scheme the sticker should come right off. Have not tried it yet nor do I know what brand of peanut butter works best (thought I would throw that in there before someone asked).
