    They are just on there with double sided tape. I just took mine off to paint. Start at the smallest point and work a hard edge under it. I used a plastic pry bar and slowly start lifting it off.

    Even new, they didn't grip at all. I ordered the knee grips from Rascal Grafik the day I bought the bike brand new and have loved them. They were a little bit of a pain to apply because of the design, but I like the look.

    As for the fade. Mother's Back to Black made all my black plastic look new.
