I used to use this stuff called plexis I think a blue can that is plastic cleaner. Usually worked pretty good.

I use Turtlewax Bug and Tar remover. It's normally for my car but works great on bikes. It don't really matter as it does the job very well. I use it to removed bugs on my helmet, front cowling and grease from my chain lube on my rims. It will remove pine sap. Guaranteed. Try it.

I'd probably use 3M adhesive remover and I think that I have taken sap off with it.

But everything listed so far will probably work too.

Just be patient, let the product get in and loosen it and don't force it.

Now that I think of it, WD40 may work too.

hot water on a rag. let the rag sit on it for a few seconds and rub it away
Sounds like a great idea, I'll have to try that when the time comes.
