    I have just fitted a set of saddlebag guards on my street glide, at the top of each guard is a warning sticker, informative they may be but has anybody got any advice on how to remove them without having to pick them off bit by bit?:bigsmiley30:

    rub some liquid fabric softner ( Yep the same stuff used in the washing machine) on them , let stay on there for a bit then wipe it off. After that, take some Pledge and wipe down the(both) entire guard.

    Most times those stickers can be heated a bit with a blow drier and peeled right off clean.

    Lighter fluid will soften them up and remove all the glue also. Works great.

    I will have to try the ones Listed here I Did Not Try.....

    I Peeled-Off the sticker label on the Football Air cleaner Cover and it Left on Most of the dull sticky but Persistent gooey stuff.... I tried goo-gone, finger nail polish remover,,,, That took off Some but not all off... I will try All again along with the other ways mentioned here AND Report Back.....

    Looked better before, with that label than the Splotchy-gookey stuff..

    In this sort of situation i would just use some paint thinner i always have some in the bike shed and its great for cleaning sticky stuff off lighter fluid can work as well but its just a refined petrolium spirit and you may find that your gas tank is full of petrolium spirit so im sure yo will have some suitable cleaner there

    WD-40 and some elbow grease. I did the same thing two weeks ago...pulled the sticker off the air cleaner and had to get the gooey stuff off. I used the WD-40, a rag, my fingernail, and lots of elbow grease. It was kinda a pain in the rearend, but I got it all off and it looks great now.
