I'm sure they're on there for some safety reg, but they're just on there with foam adhesive backing... very easy to remove.

I was thinking about taking mine off to clean the bike up a little...

What do you think, any of you take yours off yet?

Yes, just becareful you do not use anything sharp or you will scrape the hell out of the forks. I used a hairdryer and a plactic spoon. Then used a lttle WD-40 to get off any remaining adhesive.

Ditto...did the same. Followed-up with WD-40 to loosen and remove adhesive.

:them: A hair dryer may be safer in the hands of a novice. The fishing line alone will do the job.

Time was, that removing your front fork reflectors was part of the initiation around this forum... of course some guys have to be rebels, right RJ?

p.s. Look at Nightmare's bike on the front page for more evidence.

The dental floss will likely break if you don't heat the metal around the reflector to soften the adhesive. Fishing line is stronger and thinner so it cuts better.

I pulled mine off with my hands and used my thumb to take off the glue residue :thumb:

The wife's hair dryer worked for me (just don't tell her). I tried fishing line, but cut the hell out of my pinkies...

If you get the adhesive hot enough, no fishing lin eis necessary.

I wouldn't do it... it'll void your H-D warranty.

Texas V-Rod,

If you are concerned about visibility, why buy the baddest, blackest bike available?

Lots of wild paint and shiny chrome out there.
