Givi Air Flow Windshield Decal Residue

I installed the air flow and on the top section there were 2 givi decals. I removed them as you are supposed to, however it has left a residue.

What should I use to remove it?

I have tried isopropyl alcohol and it did not work.

The warning on the windshield says to not clean with any solution other than water, so I do not want to damage the screen.

Ideas welcome.

I have the Givi Airflow on both bikes. In each case I removed some of the factory stickers. I used Goo Gone (citrus based) on a microfiber towel to remove the residue. No damage to the windscreen.

I realise that the thread is about removing the left over residue but the easiest way is to actually heat the sticker with a hair dryer etc. BEFORE removal and the adhesive will remain on the sticker and the screen (or any plastic surface) will remain pristine.
