want to remove gills

Has anybody removed the gills from there '08? Are they just taped on?

My understanding is that its double sided automotive sticky tape.

Hair dryer/floss (or filiment fishing line)/goo gone.

This is also how I removed my tank emblems off my motorcycle.

Nope, there are five holes in the fender that they attach to. Someone did remove them, but I can't find the thread.

You could always take them off and paint them to make them more bareable...look at the 09 RS it has painted gills and it doesnt look that bad.
