TT Case Shields Question

I have the TT case shield on my 2013. Can they be removed? I tired to get a corner to lift up but the permitex adhesive will not budge.

 

Any tricks aside from buying new or aftermarket covers?

 

Thanks much

I hear piano wire might do it,  going back n forth.    why do you want to remove them?

high test fishing line and this www.removcanada.comworked for me, took awhile..

didn't want to scratch the original cases up so didn't want to use steel line.

why do you want to remove them?

this, unless they are scratched and you want to put new ones on? :excuseme:

You could carefully use a torch to heat them up and melt the adhesive under it.

The "melting" point is somewhere north of 500 deg F for the RTV suggested in installing these.

.. Not what I would want to do to the side of my motor with a torch 

Oh, well scratch that then. I didn't think about the temp rating, good looking out buddy.

It's not a bad idea, just depends on what was used to install them.

 

If it was shoegoo...it might work to soften it.

 

To the OP.

 

I use piano about 3 feet long, with 4-6 inches at each end wrapped around a wooden dowel  

Maybe OP is powdercoating the savers?

after looping my bike earlier this week i can attest that these case savers truely are savers! hopefully removal is only temporary to do something to the bike and they will be put back on! lol by the way the integrity should not be ruined if the case saver has a dent in it correct? lol the shifter put a nice ding in it but did not puncture it... 

I did a crap job of installing them and it looks bad.

 

I want to try again or go with the Yosh case savers instead.

 

Thanks for all the help.
