Default Clear coat coming off

Can anyone tell me an easier way to get clearcoat off
of my sissy bar and stock grab handle other than wet sanding? I have literally sanded my fingerprints off of some of my fingers on my right hand doing part some of it.

I sanded and sanded until my fingers were in the same condition as yours, OUCH!
I finally ended us using Klean-strip aircraft paint remover which took a couple applications, I left it on there longer each application which seemed to work better.

I bought this orange stuff from aces.. it didn't burn you if you got it on you and it worked. Or any gel stripper should work. Klean strip is some amazzing stuff tho!! Don't get it on your skin lol

I think the aircraft stripper would be the easiest & least-messy. I think you could also use a [bicarbonate of] soda blaster. If you search under that term, you will find some threads on it.

I found it at lowes or Home Depot. Used generally as furniture stripper. Or at autozone or Walmart in body repair where the bondo can be found.

Look for the "least green" product you can find.

Yes, use gloves, in an open area and a respirator if at all possible. There are precautions on the "How to use" portion of the can.
