went a little crazy today removing stickers and ran into a glich i'd like to warn others about.
hairdryer and 3M adhesive remover were my weapons of choice. worked effectively on:
v-strom tank stickers >check<
suzuki S emblems >chedk< removal-remorse on this one!
cowl warning stickers >check<
luggage rack max weight >check<
noise emission compliance >check<
then came the dl1000 side cover stickers ....
couldn't get the adhesive off... and probably shouldn't have tried. they really didn't look bad at all! in the process, i badly scratched up and swirled the paint finish. and still can't get the base layer of the sticker off the bloody side cover!!! :mad: tried adhesive remover, alchohol, you name it.
so my recommendation to other strommers: leave the side cover stickers on. don't mess with them.
silver lining is that i now need new side covers!!! anyone know where i can get some carbon fibre side covers to replace the marred ones????
