Hi there.

Is there any way to remove that red logos - RENTHAL & FATBAR?
It's not actually usual sticker, it's some kind of very adhesive painting, maybe...

I have some Renthal bars and yes it is some kind of surface logo,
unlike a laser etching or similar into the surface of the aluminium.

Have not atempted to remove this logo myself, but would suggest
using a strong paint thinners and or a strong paint remover,
stick with something that is used for breaking down paint types
as this should not affect the anodized coating, and see how it goes.
Maybe try first on the end of the bars so if things go south you at
least have the option to hide any potential mess.

Avoid acids or similar as they may eat into the aluminium surface
or at least effect the anodizing, though being black you have options
like painting over, black tape and the like.

Further note, there are weak paint removers, the stronger types
are usually Methylene chloride or dichloromethane based, these
burn your skin and do wonders for your eyes but will usually get
through most paints and stickers.

Cellulose paint thinners rather than white sprit or similar is a better type
thinners to try.
