Re: New motorcycle
To answer the question, "What is the best way to remove the old clear coat" I'll tell you what I did with parts off my Yammy XS650. Pulled the piece, applied Easy Off oven cleaner, let sit for a bit (but not until dry) agitated with a green scratchy pad and rinsed with water. Might take a couple of tries but this did it for me and I did several pieces quick. Sand to desired surface texture and polish or re-spray with clear.
