Help needed on a cleaning product

I have something on my painted inner fairing that is hard and sticky, and I'm not sure what it is. I need to clean it off but I'm not sure what to use without hurting the paint. I have tried to scrape it off with my finger nail but it's not coming off. Can anyone provide a suggestion?

WD-40 is safe for paint and a good solvent.

I've got Meguiars Bug & Tar Remover. Used it on my car & bike all the time. I looked on there website but couldn't find it. I've had this for a few years. I'm sure you could find another mfg. Good luck.

Garage
If you have some around the house, try hydrogen peroxide, you'd be amazed at how it works on some things.

Don't scrape at it at all, soak with damp cloth of Dbell say (H2O2), keep soaking to break it down, don't be impatient, sap or hardened spude will pull paint, dissolve it away, then wax the inner

As has been noted above, either WD-40 or hydrogen peroxide will help loosen it up and remove it.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
