    That's what I used. Throw some wax on when you're done.

    Goo gone is fine.

    Pro tip: Heat up the emblem with a hair dryer first. If you have some fishing line you can remove them with very little clean up required

    No. Use heat and peel off the adhesive.
    Don’t use harsh chemicals on your paint.
    At most use diluted isopropyl alcohol 50/50 with warm water.

    Do not scrub it off the paint either. You’ll cause marring.

    Use a clay bar to remove excess adhesive.

    I used it on my F6B, (Goldwing) and it cracked my paint down to the plastic. and I had to have my front garnish re painted. That being said, the bike panels are plastic, so I should have known better. I personally would shy away from harsh chemicals if I could help it. Just my $0.02.

    I see this is an older thread. Fwiw I used goo gone to remove the V6 badge. Tried bug and tar remover on the Tacoma badges and the bug and tar remover was twice as easy to remove the residue. It's also designed to use on vehicles as well.

    Yes Bug and Tar removal works well for any type of adhesive or goo on vehicle paint.

    I was watching one of those car shows a while back and the guy used this eraser type wheel that goes into drill motor. Adhesive came if in seconds! Don’t know what it was called.

    I’ve used it on all my vehicles without a problem.

    Heat gun/hair dryer + fishing line is a big help.

    Seen them called rubber wheel (pretty much what it's made of) and stripe off wheel. We used one to remove a decade old decal on our work van. You've got to not let the wheel get too hot though or you just burn the clearcoat.

    Second on the alcohol... goo gone may be fine, but isn't needed.

    The eraser wheel and regular thinner/alcohol work great on removing the emblem residue. The fishing line and hair dryer help to get them off to begin with.
