    Just wondering if anyone has removed the "Cafe Classic" or any other V7 decal without causing too much harm? If you have.... what was your method. Thanks, Ben

    I removed the V7II decals on the side cover on my Stone using a hair dryer they came off easy.
    Once off I used some methylated spirits to clean any gum off then gave them a wipe over with Armor all.

    Use caution. A little too aggressive and you'll dig out a paint chip.

    I also had minimal difficulty removing decals from my '13 and '16 Stones. Using a heat gun or hair dryer really helps. Avoid making chips and scratches by using an old credit card as a scraper.

    i use fishing line. use it like you would to cut clay. you're not going to chance damaging the paint.

    Very helpful. Nothing against Eni, and it's good graphic design, but I'd still like to get rid of its decal.

    Bike looks a lot better without the decals.

    I assume this applies equally to the v7iii aluminum panels? Are they decals or laser printed? I only ask because I know it’s possible to print directly on aluminum.
