Decal Adhesive

Does anybody know what in the hell kinda adhesive/glue they used to apply the decals on bikes these days...i mean, WTF!!!! It took me 2 hours to get the adhesive off the back of the factory Katana decal on the side of my bike...I took the other side off yesterday, and it only took about 20 minutes...This one took 2 freekin hours, the decal came off and the adhesive was left behind..we tried, soap/water,Oops,and even small amounts of gasoline (which didnt hurt the finish at all).but didnt even begin to take off the gunk..then we finally were able to get it off w/ Goo Gone..took alot of scrubbing with rags, but it came off, with no damage to the finish.

New aftermarket decals look sweet as hell!!!

Just curious if anybody else has had that many issues trying to replace decals..UGH!!

I've never tried to get the stock decals off, but after baking in the sun for a few years I doubt they'd come off easily. I would have used the same things you tried. Anything else might have harmed the finish.

Got any pics?

The stock ones aren't bad on my 750..but I put some aftermarket Dragon ones on....it looks hot as hell..not tacky, but just way cool...I've got pics, but just finding time to upload them, when getting home from work, I'm usually pretty wasted, but I'll get to it soon.
