Tank badges

Hey, does anyone know how the tank badges are attached?
If they're just sticky I'll remove them, but if they have fasteners obviously I won't....
Thanks!

with previous model years it was all adhesive, not sure what it is now
easy way to test is with a heat gun if you have one

Might try 'sawing' them off with dental floss tonight... if there's an actual fastener in there, one with it's head hidden under the glossy insert then the floss will break pretty quickly, but if it's stickum it should kind of go through the foam backing...

Yup... just stuck on... there’s a small hole in the underside of the badge (maybe attaches to a positioning rig at the factory?) that you can hook into to pull them off. It’s a hard pull because the adhesive is super sticky stuff... be prepared to spend some time getting the residue off!

That's a solution and might be cleaner too if you end up changing your mind and want to keep it all OEM.

At least heating it up might allow for enough play to suggest whether there's actual hardware holding it in or just adhesive.

Hi, it is just adhesive, need to heat and remove. The small hole at the bottom is probable to eliminate water. good luck.

You can do it without using a heat gun. Just peel back. The glue is easy to dissolve with WD40, leaving no trace.

Just to confirm they are stuck on given I had a new paint job done, as mjmike indicated, WD40 is your best route. The painter indicated to me as I was interested in the process; to spray WD40 or glue release agent (paint friendly of course) in the area and try to get behind as much as possible, leave the chemical to do its job, then pull off...any residue can be cleaned up.
