Hello,



I just bought my yamaha TW second hand from a friend.

It features a quite thick (rubbery) sticker on the tank, exactly like the one that can be seen here:

Now I was wondering if I could remove it safely without damaging the paint?

I thought of maybe removing all fuel out of the tank and heating the sticker, but I don't know if the paint could tolerate that.



Thanks in advance,

Seba

Don't know how thick or stiff the sticker is but a friend of mine likes to use dental floss to cut underneath and lift emblems. Warms it up with a hair dryer first and then keeps it warm as he slowly works.

Thanks for the reactions. Never thought of the dental floss, seams like a good idea!

Use a magnifying glass to determine if the clearcoat is over the label. If so, not gonna work.
