adhesive on vinly

okay, I keep my mc on a lift year round with the factory cover along with a over the tower cover over the off season. well this year I used carpet film to cover the back sunpad to protect the vinyl from the bleeding factory cover. went up today to take her out and removed the plastic covering and there was some adhesive that is stuck to the vinyl from the film. need advice on what would be safe to get the glue off and not damage the stitching?. I have 07 which is the hammered style and don't want to damage the vinyl.

WD-40 or if that doesn't work Goo-b-gone adhesive remover, followed by something to condition and protect after

You could try some 3M general purpose adhesive remover. I would definitely try it on an inconspicuous spot first. You can get it from Amazon, but some Napa stores also have it.

I use a product called Xenit for adhesive removal in cars. It is a citrus based cleaner and designed as a cleaner for metal and plastic molds to clean out release agent. Any citrus based cleaner ought to work with out damaging anything so long as you clean it off with a mild degreaser after the adhesive is removed. I use it on auto dashes, vinyl, and leather daily!
