help me remove the stickers on black cat

Post by Muggs »

I now have over 300 miles on my Black Cat. Waiting to have it serviced...I guess that means tighting up screws and such. I love this scooter but am thinking of getting my motorcycle license and gettig a crotch rocket.
I'm getting tired of the fireworks and cat. I know some of you have removed the decorations...any suggestions on the easiest way to do this?

I removed mine with patience!! It takes a while (30 mins or so) but all I did was use a little plastic scraper (to get an end to pull) and then pull them off in little pieces.

I have heard some people on this board suggest heating the stickers up with a blow dryer first. I didn't; I just scraped and peeled. Afterwards, I used WD40 to clean off any residual adhesive.

For the fireworks stencils (on either side of the seat) and the "adult supervision" stencils on the sides of the floorboards, I used carb cleaner. Worked GREAT on the fireworks stencils but just okay on the "adult supervision" stencils (left behind a little smearing).

Good luck!

Thanks
might keep the '' adult supervision'' part on. Gets a good laugh at my expense, but a good laugh.
