2015 V650 Windscreen Decal

I've never been particularly knocked out by the looks of my stock windshield. & noted some similar size aftermarket screens look nicer IMO. It registered the reason I like them better is the absence of the "Kawasaki" sticker & the frosted patches. I have absolutely no problem advertising my bike is a Kawasaki, but think thr bike would look better w/o the sticker. Have any of you removed it, hopefully w/o scratching the windshield &, if so, what method did you use?

I took off all the decals, including tank, with a hair dryer. Heat the entire sticker evenly for 30 seconds, then focus on one corner until you can lift it with you fingers. Peel slowly with heat focused on peeling edge. Stickers come off very cleanly.

+1. I used the exact same method. I took the Kawi tag off the shield when I flipped it because it was now reading upside down. I've de-badged and re-badged the tank covers four or five times. I've always used a bit of Goo Gone to clean up after the decals are pulled.

Always trust your cape.

Thanks IAMRA & ATYC. I didn't want to get into an adhesive residue and have to use a solvent that might damage the surface. Again, thanks to you both.
