Eazi-Guard Paint Protection Kit Removal Procedure

Eazi-Guard™ Removal Procedure:

Whilst it is unlikely that removal of Eazi-Guard™ paint protection film will permanently damage your bike’s paintwork, it is also important to understand that if the quality of the bike’s paintwork is poor to begin with, you’re dealing with an older model, or the bike has been repainted or touched up, these will have an impact on removal.

It is also important to be aware that whilst most OEM graphics and logos should have an overlaminate or lacquered protective finish, this should be verified before Eazi-Guard™ protection film removal is attempted.

Removing paint protection film will vary in difficulty depending on the size and shape of the section to be removed. Also, age can greatly affect how difficult it will be to remove. If removal is required, we suggest the following steps:

  1. Clean It With Soapy Water

Dirt and debris on and around the film can scratch your bike’s paint, so you’ll want to clean it beforehand. Get a cloth or a sponge and some soapy water and wash the film and the surrounding area.

  1. Heat It Up

The next step is to heat up the film to weaken and loosen the adhesive. The best tool for the job is a hairdryer, as a heat gun is too powerful and could damage your paintwork. Distribute the heat evenly throughout the film section to be removed and be sure to heat the edges of it. Give it a good two minutes of heating before you stop.

  1. Peel It Off

You’ll want to do this step immediately after heating up the film. Have a plastic card on hand, like a rewards card or an old debit or credit card. Whatever you use, it should be plastic, as knives and razor blades can easily scratch the paint. A plastic card is strong enough to release the film from the paint if you’ve heated it up sufficiently. Once you’ve used the card to release a corner edge of the film, you should be able to peel it off using your hand. The film should form an angle of 70° to 80° relative to the substrate surface when peeled back, as this will enable the adhesive bond to break in the most effective manner.

  1. Use A Glue Removal Product Or Vinegar

Most likely, once the film has been removed, you’ll still have some adhesive residue on the substrate surface. This is perfectly fine because there are plenty of products at your disposal that can get rid of it without damaging your paint. If you have some white distilled vinegar in your kitchen, grab that and apply it to a cloth to rub off the adhesive residue. Or, use an adhesive remover product like Goo Gone, which is a little more heavy-duty. Apply the product to a cloth and rub it onto the area or follow the instructions on the product label. WD40 is also effective as an adhesive remover.


Eazi-Grip Racing Products are not liable for damages and degradations caused to the substrate by using incompatible products.
