Just get some dental floss & wiggle it behind the badges to get them off. For the glue that is left behind carfully use a microfiber towel & some goo gone to get it off. Wax or high speed buff may be needed afterwards.

Question: What type of glue would you suggest if I wanted to put the decals in another place? I am thinking of moving the X3 decal to another location, but I'm not certain if regular crazy/super glue would suffice. What do you think?

Thanks for the suggestion. Question: What kind of vehicle is a "SV650"? Motorcycle? Or, should i do a google search first before asking?
