Removing fork stickers Help

Postby dandelyon » Sat Nov 17, 2012 10:47 am

Hello,
Any good tips on carefully and efficiently removing fork stickers (and the sticky glue residue they leave once peeled off)...before sticking some fresh new ones on?
Cheers.

I'd go for a ride and not worry about it.

Heat with hairdryer, peel off carefully, remove any remaining goo with a solvent such as IPA, gunk, white spirit, petrol, wd40, etc etc.
