Sticker removal

I love my Duke but hate the graphics. I cut most of them off with a sharp blade and a hair dryer. Recently I just added some 3M reflective tape in some spots.
I tried to add photos but it looks like I need to post more first.

The only place I needed to use a blade when I removed my decals was where I separated the word "Duke" from the rest of the tank shroud graphic. The rest just peeled off with a little patience and a gentle hand, no heat needed.
Original decals


After trimming/removal

Where are all the craftsmen gone?

I guess I should start posting a lot so I can attach pictures. Don't be scared. There are many ways other than this to destroy a motorcycle

I pulled the tank cover off so I could separate the side panels for these stripes. I really like how it accentuates the difference between the matte and the gloss blacks

Sticker removal



This one was easier as well to pull the panels off first. Also note the trimming of the factory sticker. The duplication of 'KTM' with the comfort seat was bugging me

How did you do it? Really nice. I mean the orange strip on the tank.
