The secret to removing your dirt bike’s old decals is warmth. The problem with old decals is they are cold, dry and broken. So when they are like this, try to peel them off is bound to fail. What you have to do is to make them smooth first and then you will see that they come up to dinner like dogs. Here are the five steps to make this happen.
Go to or anywhere in the bathroom or bedroom and get your hairdryer. If you do not have ask one of your sisters, mothers or neighbors.
Keep the hair drier approximately one inch above the decal, turn it high and move it for approximately 30 seconds. Do not get it too hot as you can soften the paint below.
Use a credit card or something similar as the sticker is warm and nice, and push it gently at the end of the sticker till it comes up. If it is not easy to apply the heat and repeat with credit card for another 30 seconds.
Slowly peel up the sticker. Turn the dryer on and hold it over the graphics while you wrap it back if it begins to be resistant.
Once the sticker is totally removed, a contour and/or residual glue will likely be placed on the surface. Sprinkle a small piece of wd40 on the residue and sprinkle it with a clean cloth.
