I sat my 950 out in the hot sun, applied Goo Gone with a piece of cheesecloth repeatedly, and used my fingernail to scrape it off, bit by bit. Once I got it all off, I cleaned it and then used motorcycle wax to polish it up. It took me 40 minutes to get it off/polish it.

I used a hairdryer and I'm pretty sure it bonded better with heat. With extreme pain I removed the searing hot sticker with a fingernail. As if that wasn't enough, I switched hands and did the windshield, too.

I parked my new bike in the sun for a couple of hours so the solar heat would soften it up.
Then I used an old plastic credit card as a kind of scraper to carefully push the decal away without scratching the clearcoat.
Afterwards I used a clean rag to buff the area and rub away the bit of gluey residue left behind.
This worked surprisingly well: no visible signs that a decal was ever there.

Thumb nails, Goo Gone, patients, and about 30 minutes.

No more nasty, eyesore warning sticker!

Thanks for the advice folks!

BB, I did exactly as LS 650 did on my 950t last Sunday. Worked perfectly, and as bevo says, you'll go faster with less drag after its gone.
