Removing decal on tank

Just bought a 2012 ZX 6R and thinking about removing the Ninja decal on the tank. I'm told that the decal is below the clear coat however. Anyone have any advice as to how you can remove the decal that is below the clear coat?Thanks very much.

Some use a razor blade around the edges of the decal to cut through the clear coat, then a hair dryer and a plastic razor blade.

This guy below used a dremel tool with an added dimmer switch to slow it down:

How To Remove Decals Under Clearcoat - Mtbr Forums

“Banking institutions have banished precious metals and substituted a more fluctuating and unsafe medium; they have withdrawn capital from useful improvements and employments to nourish idleness for the few, who prefer demoralizing pursuits to labors useful to the whole; the peace of the whole is endangered by evils more easily to be deplored than remedied." by Thomas Jefferson,1810 (edited)

Jesis, the last thing I would do to a new bike would be cutting through the clear
