Badges, removing stinking badges.
« on: Nov 23, 2013, 15:39:13 »
I need to remove the tank badges from my 75 GT380 as the tank and side covers are going in for painting, Unlike most of my old bikes, which have the badges held on with little screws, the GT's badges seem to be glued on. I am afraid the will break as I remove them. Does anyone have a tip or two?

heat up the badge with a hair dryer, and use some fishing line to work behind it.  Go slow.

Fishing line is brilliant. I never would have thought of that. Thx!

A little WD40 along with the fishing line sometimes works well, too.
...every dump I take is original too, and it doesn't smell any better because of it's originality.
