*NOTE - this method works only on decals that are not "clear-coated" over. If your decals have been clear-coated over, do not use this method, it will not turn out pretty.
Step 1: Gather your tools.
TOOLS for disassembling the fairings. Take a look at how the fairings are attached to the frame. My Ninja's fairings are screwed and bolted, so all I needed were wrenches and a screwdriver.
1 bottle of Goo Gone
1 Exacto-type razor (I used a spare that came with a box cutter)
And an old rag/towel or paper towels for clean up.
Step 2: Disassemble.
I only needed a couple of different sized wrenches and a Philipshead screwdriver to remove the rear fairings. *You may need more or different tools so make sure to check before you start!*
Unscrew and unbolt until the fairings can be removed. Take note of what screws, etc., go where so when you begin reassembling it won't be a guessing game.
Step 3: Gather up parts.
Get out your Goo Gone, razor, and hairdryer.
I set my fairing on a towel so as not to dirty up the counter too much.
