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.

I hit the three stickers just behind the gas cap with a heat gun for 15 - 20 seconds and then peeled them off. A hairdryer will also work but may take a bit longer to loosen the stickers.
Then I buffed the residue with Goo Gone a couple of times and now you can't tell that there ever were stickers on the tank.

For any Aussies, I just peeled it off (I only had a warning sticker under the fuel cap) and used Eucalyptus oil to get the sticky bits off. Not sure if you other girls/guys have Eucalyptus oil?

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.
Thank you, I did mines this morning using this technique and it worked perfectly. No need to buy any kind of product and it looks like nothing was ever there.
