You can use a heat gun or buy some 3M Woodgrain and stripe remover. Most auto parts stores and automotive paint suppliers carry it.

If the decal has clear coat over it none of the above will work.

Heat guns work pretty well, no funny looks here.

I'm gonna assume by decal, you mean the Vulcan badge? Monofilament fishing line, as Denny said, and a squirt or two of WD-40 if it's being stubborn.

If you mean the large color decal, that's under the clearcoat; aint no easy way for gettin' that off.
