I'll try and get a pic of the ingredients tomorrow. I got that can of Goof Off at Home Depot. It also works great on dried latex paint. I had a few blobs on the floor and it wiped right up.

However it does remove the label making those $75 dollar guards look just like the $25 Chinese clones.
Personally I prefer Acetone with protective gloves used outdoors for this label removing task.

When any company pays me to advertise, I will.

EDIT - No disrespect to ACERBIS !!!

I would not have bought them if I didn't believe they sell quality products. I also bought one of their fenders. I have no complaints.

Could a moderator please delete this thread.

Credit to ACERBIS in that they actually have a molding plant in the United States unlike many American firms that either third world out-source their manufacturing or move entire business and tax liabilities overseas.

I guess my point was;

1) anyone who had the guards, but the logo was all scratched up and not looking so good, they could do what they saw fit.
2) me personally, I remove all tags and logos from the stuff I buy/wear. Including the TW - no branding, anywhere.
3) i didn't want to have weird conversations about "what kind of bike is a "Ah Sir Biss"
4) i believe in the "less is more" train of thought.
5) I just don't like writing on my bike - I even covered up the "TW 200" on my tank sides - no shame, just ask me what I ride!
