    Sticker residue removal from the plastic?


    Got a '16 PX 300, removed the ROTAX and XPS from the black fairings and its left quite a bit of sticky residue as exptected.

    Now normally i use methylated spirits on the actual ski, and wash it off no dramas, but these being what look to be just plain black plstic im a bit nervous ill end up woth a large spot/stain

    Some suggest the safest to be rubbing alcohol???
    also checked out de-solv-it, but they say its not safe on some plastics and to test which im a bit nervous to do

    also keeping min mind im from Australia, so may not have the same products as you guys

    pic for reference -

    Thanks in advance.

    I use goo gone . It has worked well on my 18 RXT 300. Always test first though. Maybe pull them off and check it on the back of the faring.

    Duct tape stuck and pulled back off will pick up most of it, then Goo-Gone.

    Believe it or not but, WD-40!

    i just removed sticker residue off a WaveRunner purrrrfectly; peel sticker off, used a heavy rag soaked with Wd-40 to get off the excess adhesive; then, pressed and held a heavy rag soaked with Wd-40to “soak” and soften up the remaining. Once softened up, used the edge of an old credit card to really remove a good bit. Just kept alternating between rubbing with heavy WD40 and then scraping. No time at all can’t tell there was ever a sticker there (and the hull shines!).

    Best o’ Success!
