Start with the hair dryer,you'll have to heat up a section at a time,heating the pad glue as you go.Any leftover adhesive can be remove without damage to the paint with...believe it...carb cleaner.I have only used Honda carb cleaner for this,I have also used it to remove shoe polish off my windshield.
'cause that's what they use at the dragstrip.What were you thinking?
Replaced my tankpad recently. I learnt there's something else you should be aware of; colour fade.
Mine's red, and the pad had shielded the underlying paint, meaning I now have a quite visible 'shadow' of the old pad to look at. Not sure if this applies to other colours than red - rumour has it, red is particularly susceptible to fading.
