Adding/removing decals - help!

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by Vivendus, Nov 3, 2006.

  1. Can any one please give me instructions on the best and safest way of removing decals?

    Im thinking of removing the decals from my 06 GPX if that helps.



    Also, does anyone have any faqs or destructions on applying new sets of decals.

    Any help greatly appreciated!!

  2. First be sure they are not under the clear-cote like my Ducati. If they are, forget it! If not, try this technique, it works for me about 75% of the time. Use a hair dryer on a low setting, and warm the sticker up at the edge, pick up the edge and pull gently, keeping the hairdryer on the current bit you are peeling. Do not pull vertically, pull horizontally away from the edge.

  3. I believe the one on the petrol tank on your GPX is below a clear coat...

  4. use Inci's technique with the hir dryer and when you get the sticker off use some orange oil to remove the sticky residue. Works a treat.
