What is the best way to remove the ugly and insulting warning stickers on a new bike? I swear, this is the best adhesive I've ever seen. It even has registration sticker goo beat!

Goof off. Although beware, it will fade the plastics. For the tank, I used a hair dryer to warm the sticker - keeping constant motion and never keep in one place for too long.



After sticker is peeled off, I quickly followed up with a "Goof off" soaked paper towel and then a quick immediate wipe from a dry paper towel. Works great!

I didn't realize just how many stickers were on my 06 until I saw your post. They must really want to cya every which way. This will give me something to do some cold winter day.

On the plastic I used a blade scraper, then avgas to remove the remaining glue. Then I polished the plastic with an abrasive dish sponge and kitchen degreaser, or even 800 sandpaper where it had turned grey or yellowish. Finally, some kind of "cockpit shine" makes it reasonably shiny again. Of course the last part doesn't apply to new bikes

Avgas? Cockpit shine? Does your TW have wings?
