Has anyone else removed the stickers from there new quads. I removed mine and it was a pain in the a$$. I had to use a blow dryer and goof off to get rid of them. I love the paint on the XP red. It looks great and I will post pictures soon.

I haven't yet! I'll go take a look at it now and see if I care!
But the body shop supply place have a spray can of stuff to remove emblems stickers and such. The stuff I used was a 3-M product!

I did not want to take a chance on anything doing damage to the paint. That is why I took the slow painful way. It turned out great. I did use a small plastic putty knife to peal up and edge and pilled it off slowly. I was afraid I would peal away the paint.

I used it on my Mazda 3 2006 and it didn't do anything bad!

My 550 XP has the Camo and I left it in the sun till the stickers warmed up and I slowly peeled them off in one piece.

I will have the wife's 300 in Parker AZ this weekend, 106 degrees. So I will see if I can put it in the sun and get the stickers off. Maybe the plastic will just melt off.

New Guy Here....My first "customization" was pulling off all the labels also. I peeled, used a hair dryer and tried windex on the adhesive before pulling out the Goof Off. I fear I screwed up the plastics a bit. It's all hazy now. Did I screw up the clear coat?

She's my first atv and new. I hope I didn't already scar my girl. Anyone have any thoughts on the hazy plastics and how to get them back?

*Update: Tried using Wd-40 to take care of the haze and it didn't work. I think I screwed up my clear coat. I'm pretty bummed. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Lessen learned...no more Goof Off for me.

That looks great, I might do that on my new X2. What did you use to peel them off? Just your finger nail?

Yup, a credit card also works well... Clean resudue with Goo Gone or carefully with Acetone.
