Default GoPro 3m sticky mount removal?

Has anyone used these on their fairings and removed them? What were the final results? I know the suggested method of removing them (heay gun / hair dryer, dental floss under the mount and wd-40 to remove residue). But... we're talking HP4 fairings here! Obviously going to be skittish

I've tried other mounting options and just not satisfied with the results. So considering biting the bullet and using the 3m mounts. But wanna be sure if I can change my mind

Use the floss or a razor blade CAREFULLY (ok lets face it, I know you won't do that). Use this stuff to get the residue off. Works great.

HP4 Fairings require sand paper and a complete respray

You're a sick man

A followup question tho: anyone mounted their cameras on the windscreen? Any video from that perspective?

- thought you'd like that K .......nope not yet (Screen mount)
- but real interested in this GoPro thread as I'm in the market
for one of the latest GoPro 3 Black Ed "surf" - for use
on trips both with the bikes and out on the Ocean.

But if I was to put a mount to fairings I may just use the 3M
defender product as a barrier to protect them as it peels off
after.

Default removing adhesive mount

If the goo gone doesn't work, a virgin solvent grease and wax remover for paint work such as prepsol and prep all will remove the gummy stuff without harming the paint and normally without dulling it if you use a toothbrush. I have pics of this (removing adhesive from NEW 2 day old paint) without dammaging the paint.

Well it's cheaper to replace a screen than fairings on any bike. And since my screen is tinted I figure it won't stick out like a sore thumb.

Hope you have a hell of a computer. The GoPro 3 Black on the highest settings eats computers. My laptop can't handle it and neither can YouTube

3m makes adhesive remover in a spray can, you can get at walmart (if you are in usa) and I haven't met an adhesive i can't remove (on automotive paint) yet. Just stick it on your helmet for first person action!
