Trying to remove inspection sticker - November 10, 2010, 05:38 PM

Hey everyone! I've never had to deal with this whole inspection sticker thing and so I don't know the best way to remove them without tearing up the fork leg. I bought a bike from VA and it's been registered in another state that doesn't do or require inspections. Soooooo... I'd like to get the ugly a$$ stickers off the fork. Any suggestions would be great!!

It's on the fork leg?
A little Goo-Gone, sylicone/wax remover, or just spray with some WD40.
Use a plastic scraper type thing, like a plastic spoon, or your finger nail.
Get to work

Sweet, I'll give these a run... well minus the semen one. Sounds like it'll strip off the paint.

Heat loosens up the adhesive and the Goo Gone/Goof Off/Oops removes any adhesive residue.

Once you get the sticker off and are just dealing with residual adhesive, you can soak a paper towel with WD-40 and stick it to the area. Then let stand for a few minutes. The PITA part is getting all of the sticker off. Heat and scraping.
