Use a blow dryer to heat it up a bit, then slowly peel it off with your finger nail... then use either WD-40 or Goo Gone to clean the sticky off... the use some detail spray wax to shine the tank. I did this on not only the tank octane decal, but the hard bag decals on my Nomad... can't tell they were ever there.!!

you can do it by using paint remover. Or you can go to some professionals.

Heating it with a blow dryer just softens the glue to make it easier to peel off.... WD-40 and or Goo Gone both work great to get the goo off afterwards.... waxing is a must to get the solvents and smears off after that.!!

I bought my V2K in July. In the San Joaquin Valley, during July, we don't need blow dryers to get stuff hot. :p
