Has anyone taken the "Fury" and "Honda" decals off the rear fender? My 13 year old picked the corner of the "Honda" lable and now I notice it everytime I walk by. I assume it peals right off with no problems or marks. But you know what happens when you assume. Anybody done it yet?

yeah alot of us have. It's just a sticker that comes off easily. Don't worry.

Stickers on fender and rear swing arm peel right off, and any residue can easily be rubbed out with whatever wax, car polish you have and a CLEAN rag. I also suggest taking off the reflectors if your comfortable with that, atleast the ones on the front forks. If you use a hairdryer to gently heat them its pretty easy to take them off. Really cleans up the look of the bike:cool:

Am I missing something

Ummm... I think mine were put on with super glue. I have been having a bitch of a time trying to get them off. I had to peel the Honda sticker off in tiny tiny bits... :mad: gerrrrr.
How about removing the reflectors on the back. That was interesting trying not to scratch the fender.

For reflectors I used a plastic scraper and pushed it in between the fender and reflector. I used a heat gun on every sticker I could find (even the one under the engine on the frame rail left side) which worked out nice. Then used cleaner wax to remove any remaining residue. I agree with everyone else, it looks much better without all of them. I even removed the catalyst (vin) sticker. I accidentally heat it with the heat gun and it started coming off so I said what the heck. The vin number is stamped on the frame and I have to say the down tube looks really clean without it.

Anyone tried this stuff yet?

Just started going after the stickers tonight; started with the Vin sticker since it was easiest to get to sitting on this little stool I had. Came off fighting tooth and nail in about 900 quark-sized little bits and pieces; took me about 40 minutes even using a hairdryer. I dunno, maybe I just don't have the touch lol. But I found a product I'm thinkin' I'll try on the other stickers, decal, and reflectors: Rust-oleum Decal and Adhesive remover. Anybody tried it?

It says you apply along the top of the sticker and let it seep down behind the sticker for 3-5 mins to begin dissolving the adhesive. Then you peel down a little and reapply as needed till the thing comes off. Says you can apply a little for any leftover adhesive and wipe dry with a cloth or paper towel.

If it works as advertised might be real easy way to get it all done ... unfortunately my detached and creaky old garage is kinda shadowy after dark and I don't wanna put anything on the paint for the first time that I can't see real clearly, so forcing myself to wait till tomorrow to try it out.

I'm thinkin' there's no reason it shouldn't work just as well on the reflectors and the fury decal as well ...

Heat gun and brake cleaner ? :eek:

a buddy of mine had a cbr1100xx once that the po had used a heat gun on to remove stickers and warped the %$#* out of the tail section. be careful! personally i find heating with a hair dryer until warm to the touch is sufficient without much risk of ruining anything.

Doesn't brake cleaner have acetone and toulene and other stuff that eats paint? goof off, kerosene, lighter fluid, or even wd40 work well for removing residue and don't eat paint. finish the job with a spray detailer and you're good to go.

Yeah, I would be hesitant to put anything on the paint that could possibly eat the clear coat. This is way I used the hair dryer and a polish and was just patient.

The Rear reflectors on the fender were originally giving me a little bit of a hard time, but in frustration, I just grabbed the thing and started to twist (side to side), and wouldn't you know it they just popped right off after that:D Turned out that was a heck of alot easier. Someone else said they used a plastic scraper. I was about to do the same, and then wimped out cause I was affraid i would slip and scratch it

Hope this helps anyone else

I heated mine with a hairdryer until they were hot to the touch. The stickers picked right off with my fingernail and the reflectors popped right off with a twist after some playing with them. Just make sure you DO NOT use anything to pry them off. You will end up scratching the plastic fender.

Took all my stickers and decals off tonight. Rear fender decals came off pretty easy but left some difficult to remove adhesive behind. Took all stickers off left side and the tank. Entire job took about an hour including re-waxing where ever I removed something. Was a bit of a pain in the butt, but really worth it. It really cleans up the look.
