OK, so i did a search on here and nothing turned up. SO my question is:

What has everyone done to remove the gaudy looking warning stickers?

I plan on using Goop remover after a good washing using only my fingernails.

Anyone else have good luck at not damaging paint?

Thanks!

A hair dryer works great to loosen it up . . . Them use your thumb to rub a corner up . . . Then pull from the corner as you heat. Then use the decal back over the residue to help pull the remaining residue up . . . Then alcohol to finish it.

I had the same problem on mine and was nervous about heating the gas tank with a hair dryer. But came off with no problems.

I shall try the hair dryer option....if a hair dryer works great....I wonder if a torch will do better? ;)

Kidding of course!

You'll definitely benefit from a hair dryer or heat gun. It will turn an hour of picking at it with goof-off into a 10 minute job. No residue no scratches.

I simply left it out in the sun for 30 minutes. Peeled right off, tiny bit of residue left but some WD40 sorted that out pretty quick.

Dammit, it's coming off so easy for you guys.....I used a hair dryer to remove the sticker no problem, but it left a ton of residue. I tried WD-40, then I tried Goo-Gone and nothing is removing it. I don't wanna scrape it all of with my fingernail for fear of damaging the paint. What should I try next? Maybe let the WD-40 soak in a bit longer? Maybe use the hair dryer again directly on the residue?

Hot water - I didn't need to do it on this, but on my old snowboard I needed some extra effort and super hot water on a soft rag ended up being the solver.

I put a hair dryer to mine...picked at it with my fingernail until it came off. Used WD-40 to get the glue residue off.

Mine came off pretty easily (matte gray paint) and a little goo gone took the little bit of residue off.
