Some use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat it up the then use weed whacker string....or fishing line to get behind it and sort of cut through it. Clean any residue with alcohol.

I've seen in magazines to clean the residue with wd-40 too...don't get it too hot tho, you might melt the side cover

I used Goo-Gone when I took the dealer label off my back fender (why on earth do they do that? it ruins the look of a beautiful fender!). Then I finished up with a liquid carnuba wax I've used for years--the Wax Shop Super Glaze.

I heard that Goo-Gone is a Gonner once it's Goo is Gone. :)

yeah, i made that mistake on the nomad. my wife swear by the stuff, so i figured it would work good. yeah, it worked too good. the amount of stickers on that bike was crazy. both saddlebags have a little rub spot :(

oh well, its getting painted soon anyways.

If you can get the metal piece off and don't want to mess with solvents, take it to a body shop. They have this cool rubber/composite wheel that goes on an air gun and will remove the goo without damaging the clear coat. It's really slick, took 5 minutes, and the place I went did it for free at the prospect of having a new customer when I repair my fender (I'm not the one who dropped it, I just got a great deal because he did) or repaint.
