What do you think... leave them or ditch them.

I put some 3m carbon fiber wrap knee guards on tank. It was starting to get a bit scuffed. I'm not sure I like them. Of course my scissor skills suck too. Should I keep them or peel them off?

They are very much macho and should stay. Completely useless but really neat-o!

All that matters is what you think.

I'm thinking I like the red better.

I used the genuine clear ones as I always scuff up the tank too.
Black bikes don't help my cause (but I love em!)
They also fitted the tank shape better then your job (sorry mate)
But at the end of the day if you're happy, leave em on.

I like the contrast between black and red.

I didn't like them. They are history.

If you want something protective but functional, get the Techspec snakeskin pre-cut set.
