Touratech Zega Pro decal removal????

I've got a new set of Zega Pro side cased and I'd like to remove the TT decal on the sides. Just wondering if anyone has done it and did it leave a mark?

My cases are silver anodized and haven't been outside yet so there's no dirt of fading. I was hoping I could just heat the sticker a little and pull it off.

What do you think?

If you dont have a real heat gun, Harbor Freight sells one for like 7 bucks. You will find more uses for one once you have it. Warm em up and they will come right off. Clean up any residue with goo gone or wd 40, then degrease with some common alcohol, not the kind ya drink Let the aluminum cool a little while before you wipe it down. Don't use paper towels, they can scratch cause of the wood fiber in em. Go with an old sock or something.

Note about heat guns:

Most have an internal thermostat. If your heat gun ever mysteriously wont turn on, think-- did I just use it a couple times repeatedly?

Put it in the freezer for a couple minutes, it will reset the internal safety.

I used to use them at work, and I kept two of them handy, so one could cool if it overloaded.

Great post, and BTW, those are the finest cans on the planet, IMO.

Thanks. I've got a heat gun but haven't used it much, I'll give it a go this afternoon. Is it possible to get them too hot?

Edit: I just got done. On one case there is no sign that anything was ever there but the other one has a clear dark block where the sticker was. We'll see if it fades out after being in the sun awhile. Another sticker will probably occupy that space before too long anyway.
