Removing badges

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by geeth, Dec 29, 2008.

  1. Hi,

    I my bike I have a yamaha badge on either side of the tank but the glue is starting to fail and the badges are coming off a bit in the middle.

    I am looking at removing the badges and putting on new ones but I don't know if there is a safe way to removing the badges off the bike without risking the paint.

    Does anyone have any ideas on doing this?
  2. Ride faster and they fall off maybe?

    hehe... Seriously, i used to use prepsol and warm water to get stuff off paint on my cars....
  3. Use a hair drier to heat up the adhesive, then it'll come off alot easier.
  4. And some fishing line....
  5. CRC/WD40 works well on some badges.
    Otherwise you could try petrol and hope that the paint on the tank is indeed fuel resistant. If it's a modern bike that hasn't been resprayed you should be fine - but test underneath the tank or somewhere else inconspicuous first if you do decide to try it.
