I just picked up a 2K mile 2017 DCT and am cleaning detailing it a bit. Not much to do really , its beautiful. Just wondering if I can safely remove the lame stickers on the tank about bike loading or if they clearcoated over them!

Mine came right off. Honda Brite and a micro fiber works real well to remove any adhesive left behind.

perfect, thanks! any recommendations on non flingy chain lubes. Been riding BMWs GSAs and RTs since 2007 and have not missed a chain really :)
Maxima Chain Wax. Goes on like water, sets up overnight to a dry wax.

Thanks! Turns out I had a can I've carried around for 12 years :) I used it up on the initial clean and adjust/oil and ordered a new 13.5 oz through good ol amazon.

Works wonders on cables too.
