run a search on stickers and reflectors you'll find tons of info. but in a nutshell, I tried several ways but the easiest was Goo Gone on the stickers; let it soak and start peeling. Had several stickers come off in one piece, but a few were stubborn and came of in lotsa smaller pieces.

hairdryer to moderately raise temperature on reflectors, then just start twisting them clockwise till they finally break loose. the two sided tape that was left a couple times was a *bitch* to get off; goo gone again but much slower process.

paint will be untouched but obviously need clean and polish.

I used dental floss on the reflectors didn't have to heat them up or nothing and on decals heated them up with a hair dryer and as Stonewheel said goo gone works pretty good on cleaning up the remaining tape.

I think everyone on here would agree that the bike looks much better without all the reflectors and stickers. Congratulations, you’ve just finished one of the many steps to making the Fury your personal work of art. :)

ohh yeah... between being de-badged and the fuggin mayhem pipes, she's lookin pretty sweet. i want to get rid of the turn signals that stick out from the sides of the bike and have the rears in the taillight and the fronts in the mirrors. i think that's going to be my next project. anyone know a good place to start looking for parts for this one?

the taillight and the license plate frame on that page are pretty much exactly what i'm looking for. am i the only one that thinks those prices are ridiculous! $200 for a license plate frame?!? really!?!
I bought the side mount 2 position license plate from RAW and I too thought it was quite a chunk of change but now that it's on and the bright LED lights (extra $40 bucks I think) have drawn many compliments. Glad I got it.

is there really $200 worth of material or design there? my point is, even though i want one, i think i'll wait till theres a little competition in the field to bring the price down to a reasonable level. i just cant get my head around the idea that a license plate frame should cost more than $50 max. i'm prepared to wait a while. same goes for the taillight. i would like to see how yours looks tho. any pics?

I can say that it is heavy duty steel, chrome plated and contains a magnet that allows it to be changed from horizontal to vertical with ease. It has a row of LED lights on the bottom of the lighted frame that are very bright. As far as comparing a $50.00 license plate holder to this one? I would think that the thickness of the metal could be one reason. Maybe the difficulty with incorporating the magnet into the piece too.... I really don't know though..
Maybe Bill from RAW could shed some light on that question.

As for a picture, the other night as I was looking at it, I thought it looked so good that I would take a picture and did but the picture did not do it justice, so I dumped it. I will get out my expensive camera later tonight and try again. If it comes out satisfactory, I will post it up.

As you can see from the picture of just the tag plate... unimpressive


Now, the picture showing the whole bike gives a little better image but even
then, not as in person. jus say'n

Plastic Decal on top of the Forks

Has anyone went as far as removing the square Honda plastic peice on the top of their forks. That is the only place on the entire bike that says Honda.

Accutronix and Raw are around the same price for the side mount. I think Accutronix is at $175 for a fixed mount. As for the rest of Raws' products, they are definitely worth it. I have their front and rear light kits and get compliments every time I ride. Here are a few pics of them with the Accutronix tag mount.

Decal removal

I am a little late on this topic but the best tool I have ever used to remove stickers is a Pinstripe and Decal Eraser. Looks like a big rubber eraser that you can use in a drill or air grinder. Easy to use and does not hurt the paint or leave a mark. Look it up, I used mine to remove my decals as I ALWAYS do as soon as I get a new bike. The wheel lasts forever in motorcycle use and goes a long way on a car. Now I will add that you can hurt the paint in what amounts to a "burnout" if you stay in one place way too long spinning. But that would be tough to do.
