I'm about to install a competition werks undertail on my sv1000 I've never removed these temporary rivets that hold on the body work. They make a point of saying push in the center and then pry out with out scratching. Any thoughts on the proper tool other than a screw driver to avoid marring your plastics?

Thanks for the hints.

I always seem to have a couple of precision type screwdrivers laying around that I use to pry out the plastic rivets. You can also use a sharp knife. You are basically looking for something with a thin, sharp edge.

I figured. But just incase I thought there might be a teflon wedge or something that wouldn't scratch as easy. Thanks so much!

Just make sure your license plate is mounted high enough!

One nice thing about the competition werks under-tail is it has a bracket with light set up to keep it visible.
