The tank top stickers on my USA bike were not top coated. I peeled them off with my thumbnail and took off the little bit of residue with bug and tar remover. With a dab of wax you can't tell they were ever there. This was done at about 250 miles so the surrounding paint had not had much chance to fade.

I peeled mine with nails and then rubbed out with microfiber towel + 99% isopropil alcohol. All took me about 15 minutes of work, i would not say that the glue residual came out very easy, but still did not take much time.

You cannot remove those its against the law and besides what if you forgot to wear your helmet, or forget that the tank is meant for gasoline and not 151 RUM..... LMAO

Peel the stickers off, dip a cloth into your tank, lightly rub the gasoline over your the glued residue, it should mostly come out, then use a cleaner to remove the gasoline before it can harm the paint, and throw a coat of wax on it, youll be good to go in about 5 minutes.
