I used a knife to carefully pry the edges up and just ripped it off in chunks, then used a solvent to get the remaining glue off (eucalyptus oil is quite good for this). If you don't feel comfortable with a knife perhaps a plastic spatula would work.
I have heard that warming it up first with a hairdryer or something like that will make the glue more pliable, and hence make the pad easier to remove.
When I wanted to de sticker my fairings I asked rthis question. Just use a hair dryer and slowly peel back the sticker. Its actually very easy. I wouldn't use a heat gun, you will risk melting or warping the paint.
IMO a hair dryer doesnt put out enough heat and takes too long, its not hard to use a heat gun and not damage the paint, just use a bit of common sence, and keep checking how hot the paints getting with your hand, if you cant touch it then its getting too hot.
wd 40 only costs about 5 bucks and you can get it from coles
not sure if it'll work, but i had some really sticky tape and stickers on my rear fairing and with wd 40 i was able to get rid of them very quickly without any damage to my fairings
on a side note, used it on my trackies once to take gum off it, worked a charm
