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:

It’s more fun to marvel at them, to appreciate them, to be grateful for them, and to mock them relentlessly. ”-from the 2010 book American Freak Show by Willie Geist.
