    You can remove the emblem if that's what you are trying to do without damaging it. I heated the air cleaner cover and then very easily coaxed it off and there was no damage to the cover or the emblem.

    did you just use a heat gun or a hair dryer as it doesnt get as hot?

    Either will work but the hair dryer takes longer. Then use a paint thinner but don't rub it hard, just wet it and dissolve the gum that is left.

    If you take the cover off the bike you will find heating it a bit easier IMO, and then you can use either some Goo Gone Cleaners | or chrome polish on the adhesive

    Lighter fluid takes the glue residue off easily also. But don't light it.:D
