I would like to remove the stickers from my fuel tank ... specifically the ones saying to insert only unleaded fuel, and another advertising the immobilizer system. I am assuming that simply pulling them off would leave some glue residue on my tank ... so what techniques / substances have you guys used to assist with this?

What I am currently planning to do is just rip the stickers off, then use some soap (car wash type stuff) to simply wipe/scrape/smear the remaining glue off. Any suggestions?

the unleaded fuel only is "suppose" to be there to get a RWC but i've not seen anyone knock a bike back on it...in saying that not all RWC suppliers are as easy going as the next.

just peel the sticker off as best you can then get some turps on a rag to remove the residue. depending on how old your paint is it may leave a brighter mark where the sticker was as paint fades with time.

that too.forgot about 1500,1000, 800, or even 500 grit. 10 grit is where it's at. stick at it long enough and you'd erase your whole tank too. who needs a tank anyway. it's surplus weight. pffft. tanks.

not anymore well in nsw at least

it took many years of people getting fines for not having the sticker despite only unleaded fuel is available for purchase at the servo , before the law was firmly canned
