Default Decal Removal

I have a K8 blue and white 600. There are decals all over the fairings. I was thinking it would look alot cooler if i took them off.

Can anyone tell me how difficult this process might be...

And if anyone has any pics of their bike without all the decals, I would love to see them... especially if it were blue and white.

It would look good...thats how I roll. I don't have hardly any stickers on my bike....its really easy to take them off. You just heat them up with a hair dryer or something but don't keep it on there too long because it could warp/melt the plastic...They will come right off!

Hair dryer doesn't get hot enough to damage the fairings. Heat them up and peel them off. Be ready with a good adhesive remover to remove the glue.

I agree that they look much better without all the decals, I removed mine the first day I had it, just used a hairdryer and peeled them off, the only one I left was the red R and the silver S on the tank

Still need pics of no decals? I put new Suzuki's down at the bottem... much better than the silver shit, they're blue with white outline. Ive got the same in for the R's, but I decided I liked the look without any better...

Edit: Sorry, Hairdryer, patience, and some either goo-gone, or gasoline works too. Just make sure you wash and wax after you take any decals off. Good luck
