2018 Suzuki GSX-S750: MD First Ride (Bike Reports) (News)

When Suzuki first introduced the GSX-S750 to the U.S. market back in 2015, we attended the press launch in Austin, Texas expecting an exciting ride behind local resident Kevin Schwantz. Instead, torrential rain prevented us from fully evaluating the bike. That original model entered a tough market against other reasonably priced alternatives. We are thinking […]

Yes, I have removed the badging also in that manner but I was referring to the decals. Looks to me that they are clear coated over. My concern is that if I heat with a heat gun and remove there won't be any clear coat under the decal.

Has anyone sucessully removed decals?

I've removed the tank badges and it's been a smooth and neat job: first I had to use a hair dryer, just to warm a bit the badges; then I passed a fishing wire trhough the back side of said badges and the tank, movin' it up and down gently, 'till the badges came out nicely.
And then I used a sanding brush, to remove the gummy residues from the tank.
Finally, I've put on each side a new decal bought via e-bay. Et voilą!

Has anyone attempted to remove factory decals?  I have an 01 800 and I'm not to crazy about the tan and gold strips on the tank and fender. It's a red bike and I think the all red look of the 03 800 looks much cleaner.

I've looked on line about how to remove decals in general but I'm not sure if I attempted it would there still be clear coat under the decal on our drifters.

Any thoughts?  Paul
