Removed mine by heating it slightly with a hair dryer. Used some dental floss under the emblem and ort of sawed my way across. After the emblem was removed, used some Honda Cleaner and Polish to get rid of the remaining residue. It is now a lot easier to clean.
I did the same thing with the dental floss.....needed to use some of the Cycle Care plastic polish (gets rid of the swirls) to clean up the area.
Don't stop with the front - remove the letters on the rear trunk at the same time.......you can even remove the Goldwing from the side covers if you want. You'll just need to put in a rubber grommet or something to plug the holes.
Sure makes cleaning alot easier. It's kind of fun answering to people's question "what kind of a bike is that??"
The heat gun will work, but I when I took them off my ST 1300, I just parked it square to the sun on a hot day. After it sat in the sun for an hour I just pulled in a twisting motion and they came right off leaving very little residue, which scrubbed right off with car wash soap.
The 1300 looks much better with out the H O N D A on the fairing, but I haven't decided wether to take them off the wing or not.
If it comes on the bike, take it off. If its painted, chrome it. If its stock, change it. Shades of the fogey fifties. Couldn't be seen with Chevy emblems on our Chevy, door handles that opened doors, level suspensions, or (horror of horrors) a 54 Chev Grille in a 54 Chev. Now in a 57, THATS COOL. Olds Starfires on our 56 Monterey - YEA, MAN. I even remember the exscuses we used to put the three on the tree on the left side of the column.
We have not grown smarter, only older. Sure is fun......
