Careful with the acetone though, I took mine off with a hair dryer and the goo gone like jboat said. If you use the acetone be sure to throw a hard wax on the area or your paint will look kinda dull right there, also because the adhesive will strip the "race glaze" they put on the bike when it's new. Food for thought. Decals, I've seen some pretty cool sets on ebay...if that helps. Good luck

NOO CHEMICALS NEEDED!!!!

Alright guys, heres the easiest way to those POS stickers off. Get your lady friends hair dryer out and heat them up for about 1-2 minutes. Then just peel up one edge, keep the heat on as you pull it off then presto-- no more sticker and no residual goo.:2bitchsla

yep i did the hair dryer thing and got the rest of the sticky stuff off with just a towel. no water or anything. i just rubbed till it balled up and rolled off. but i didnt have much there to begin with. most came off with the sticker.

And don't pull it against its self, pull straight up or even in the oppisite direction. This way takes the glue with it.
