Could try a blow dryer to heat up the double faced tape and use a slight twisting motion to help it come off. Definitely wouldn't try to pry it off and I dont think a heat gun is a good idea either. Have seen some people use fishing line. And some use WD40 which sometimes works amazingly well to take stickers off of bumpers, etc...

Yeah, I did all my emblems on my bike. What I found that works the best is fishing line. get a small piece and start doing a sawing actiong between the fender and the emblem and it will come off. I think I used mineral spirits to clean the remaining tape on the fender. Good luck

If you don't have fishing line you can also use dental floss to saw it off.
