Wanda's right.

Most of the decals and even pinstriping are cleared over nowadays. Your warning or spec stickers (Tire Pressure, etc) are not cleared over.

Those that aren't cleared over, I lift one edge with a razor blade and pull back. Those that are cleared, I sand down. You will probably have to repaint. It's almost impossible not to sand thru the surrounding paint...

You could go to PPG.com and get a list of thier local dealers. They can actually match the paint on your bike... Most of the dealers will also sell you smaller quantities. You shouldn't need much if you are just doing your tank....

If it's the same color...dark candy red (dark raspberry metallic) is what is on my 04 Aero...Colorite has it.

OR you can go the Airbrush route too.

On the honda tanks , they paint them and then clear them and then the sticker is placed on the tank and then they re- clear it, if you have a steady hand you can use a razer blade and cut into the edge of the sticker and shave it off insted of sanding it, I just had this done to mine. after that is done you will still have to have the tank sanded to have the clear coats leveled out and re-cleared, but you have to make sure you dont cut into the paint past the sticker,

I wish I would have known the color rite prices were considered high before I bought the paint. Oh well, I have it now and I am only doing a fender. First try at painting so wish me luck.

colorrite is a good company to deal with even if their prices are a bit steep. and im with everyone else on here with hating the fact that our decals are under the clear. why they do that i will never understand, i guess marketing/free advertising?
