    Just a word of warning.
    I cleaned off my Motorbicycling.com stickers today without thinking it through.

    The instant horsepower boost from the clean stickers made it really hard to keep the front wheel on the ground and by the time I got it under control, I was halfway through Arkansas. I finally got it stopped and turned around, but every time I gave it throttle, the back wheel went up in smoke again! By the time I made it back home, my tank was empty, my nerves frazzled, and my rear tire a melted shredded mess!
    Kids, Use your Motorbicycling.com stickers responsibly!

    I found a way to control the speed increase from these stickers. I cover them with layers of semi-transparent tape. The more layers the slower you go. But, make sure the tape doesn't come off while you're riding. Mine did and I did a wheelie right in front of a cop. Not a good thing.

    ... And if you go to your favorite convenience store and get one of those NOS energy drinks, save the bottle and zip tie it to your frame so everyone knows your bike will blow theirs away if they try to race you...
