Thread: Adhesive removal
01-17-2007, 01:07 AM #1
Hey guys I recently bought a used GP1200R the guy who owed it before me glued Hydro Turf mats on it and slopped glue all over it. It’s yellowish-brown glue. Any ideas on just how I am supposed to remove it????

Acetone should do the trick.

Goof Off from Lowes, as well as from other places, works fantastic on the original adhesive, as well as cleaning up small places of the Hydroturf adhesive I slopped, I tried MEK, acetone, and two or three other fancy chemicals, and the Goof Off worked best. Got the idea on the forum btw.

i found that Xylol Xylene, found at Home depo or Lowe's is the best

I have tried acetone, thinner, and goof off with little to no results, its thick, he really slopped it on. I may have to carefully scrap in the thicker spots.
What is Xylol Xylene driver19, and where in Home depot do I find it? Thats a good one to try since I am going there tomorrow to pick up a new pair of fench doors for my house.

I'm pretty sure that Xylene is one of the active ingredients in Goof Off.
Xylene is found in the paint section next to the paint thinner at Lowes and Home Depot.
If you have to use a scrapper try to find a plastic one, it will save your finish. I found a great one at Crate and Barrel for 99 cents I think it's for scraping food off cookware.

Try Butyl Acetate or N- Propanal, be careful with it though! No smoking or fire next to it.

Try a windshield plastic ice scraper after you softend the glue with some type of solvent.
