Default DeBadging trick

Ive read a few threads about debadging and just wanted to throw this out there incase you dont know..

use a piece of heavy fishing line i like to use spiderwire its tough spectra. run it behind the badge with a sawing motion back and fourth..after badge is off use your thumb to roll off sticky residue..take your time and it will be easy enough..

I have found that if you hit the badge with a heat gun then use the fishing line it will slide off with very little sticky stuff at all. put a little wax on the little bit of sticky that is left and it is clean and with no scratches...

At least that is what I have always done.

Dental floss works just as well as fishing line for those that limit their hobbies to motorcycling. It also works to pull off reflectors but just like fishing line you will have to roll off the sticky residue. You can get the sticky stuff off with goo-gone or WD-40.

If you don't have a heat gun, a hair dryer will work in a pinch. i have used a hair dryer, dental floss, and goo b gone on my last two motorcyles and it has worked flawlessly on badges, reflectors, etc.

Default Decals?

What do you use for the decal or sticker by the fuel fill cap? Also is this sticker painted with clear coat or is it put on after the clear coat? I would like to remove it.

lighter fluid works well as well (to get the gummies off)
