G'day mate. Those stickers can be a nuisance.

You might want to try using a hair dryer or heat shrink gun (not too close to screen) to warm up the sticker and melt the glue... the sticker should then peel off. Use a bit of 'Goo-Off' to clean away any residue on the screen - no excessive rubbing as these screens scratch easy.

Yea, those stickers suck. My bike is a 99 and removal was futile. I cured that when I landed a Silverado Wide Shield cheap on Ebay. NO Sticker. and super clear.

Yeah, I took the label off with my heat gun set on low and then used Goo Gone to get rid of the glue.

I used Goo Gone, but mayonaise makes a dandy sticker remover, too.

I used a hair dryer and Biker Spirits for the goo. It came off nicely. Much easier than the one on the tank did..lol
