I love the color of my motorcycle (Kawasaki Ninja 500r) but hate the maroon tribal-looking decals on the fairings. So I decided to remove them and here's how I did it.
*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.
You will need:
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.
