Anybody removed the reflectors from the front forks yet? Are they just stuck on? Any issues or marks left after removal ?

Thanks !

I used a plastic paint scraper to get under it and pry them off. WD40, a paper towel and some elbow grease finished off the remaining adhesive.

I removed the front fork reflectors by using my wife's hair dryer to heat the the reflector which makes the glue used to apply the reflector more pliable. I then took a piece of nylon fishing line and pulled it down with both hands behind the reflector. They popped right off with no marks on the fork. I then used Goof Off to remove the remaining glue residue.

I haven't taken a single one off. I find them all to be relatively subtle and if they add a bit of safety being seen, leaving them on for the time being.

Maybe once the pipes are louder and can be heard before seen I'll take them off, but not unhappy with the reflectors. They aren't ,in my opinion, gaudy. Yeah, they are some stuck on plastic.....

Depending on where you live and how strict the law enforcement is, you may need to have at least the rear reflector and some areas require 2.

I'll remove the refelctors too once i install the upper fork blackout tubes & have the matris suspension put in!
It does look much better without them!
