Tank labels

So as I sit here admiring the looks of this bike, I am distracted by the labels on the tank by the filler. Have any of you removed yours yet?

I was about to remove mine yesterday but noticed the residue underneath them wasn't coming off to easily. So I am going to have to wait until I get goo gone or some type of cleaner.

I removed the sticker on the rear fender but I decided to keep at least one Honda mention on the bike

I removed my stickers, just took some WD 40 and removed the residue and cleaned and waxed the tank.

Yup I just removed mine too, used alcohol on a paper towel to get the residue off. But now I've got some fine scratches which are visible when the light hits it right. Maybe they'll buff out...

Should buff out with some regular polish, doubt you'll need to use any heavy cut compound

I was worried about scratches as well that is why I held off. Though I would never use regular paper towel as that is known to scratch everything.

would a microfiber cloth leave scratches you think?

I've got the black. There are faint swirl marks on the clear coat but nothing drastic. I'm sure they will buff out when I get around to it. If you have gray, you probably won't need to worry about it at all.
