To take the 2011 stickers off the tank I didn't even have to use heat. Just start peeling it with your nail and then keep pressure on it and pull back. It took like 15 minutes to take them off, rub a little goo be gone where the outline of the stickers use to be and throw a little wax on them.

I think looks good debadged.

I did one side starting from the front and one side starting from the back and the starting from the front and peeling back was the easiest with the least "break offs" (little pieces left behind).

Strider,

I've been contemplating the same idea since I got my 2011 Wee two weeks ago. I keep looking at those big decals and thinking... no... no... no...

Thanks for the info on peeling them off. I'd been afraid to start for fear I'd end up with a mess. Came here this morning to search for info on how to do that and your thread popped up at the top of the Wee board. How awesome is that?

I now know the next thing I will be doing to my bike. Thanks for posting. We have some brutal sun here in the summer and it destroys decals (even good ones) rather quickly. I like the clean lines better anyway.

Nice classy look.

I added a simple round Suzuki "S" decal that has a black background and Silver "S". Found it somewhere on eBay.

Fantastic looking black Wee.

I've got a 'new to me' 2009 orange one I'd like to debadge, but am wondering if the paint might be faded which would leave behind the outline of the decals? Anyone debadged their older Wee?

The Turtle

I stripped my baby about six months ago.


I had more trouble with the ABS stickers on the fenders than anything else. I still need to rub something on those sticky spots. I have since rebadged with some personalized custom stickers. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the new stickers, but if you think Nascar, you'll have the general idea. :beatnik:

Damn it, that does look good! Especially because of the black. The problem these Stroms' have is that massive slab side, that just looks like a blank billboard when nothing's on it, but in your case... WOW! What a much cleaner, classier look. Don't do a thing, it looks 10Grand more expensive than it's worth. Why didn't I get black?:headbang:

In cog neat o

pealing the decals was one of the very first things i did to the LRW

if they have to ask what she is, let 'em wonder...

the colour is beautiful

why screw it up w/ bling?

FARKLES are another subject

Basic black looks just great!
I had a 94 Bandit 400 that was just plain black. It sure worked for me.
What happened to the minimalist approach to bike design?

Any one taken them off of a blue wee? I've been contemplating doing it but not sure how it would look?

I took them off my 05 blue Wee and it looks great. Earlier someone mentioned mistaking the Strom for a BMW. We were riding in Vermont last year (Route 100) and stopped for a soda at a convenience/gas station. I was on the Wee and wife on the Transalp. Bunch of Harley riders in the parking lot told us how much they liked our BMW's.

I hate to single out this particular group but at one gas station, a Harley rider asked how I was enjoying riding in North America.
He read the license plate and assumed that British Columbia was indeed part of the UK.
I think these mistakes are easily made after hours of thundering exhaust systems. They say something similar was used by the KGB to break cold war spies.(might not be true)
