Default Removing side tail reflector mounts

These things are riveted on and look kind of goofy now that I've installed my fender eliminator. Anyone have a good way of removing them?

unfortunately, since theyre riveted you have to leave them on. sorry....

just kidding, drill or grind off the head of the rivet. the bracket will fall right off.

Easy enough to drill out the rivets and remove the reflectors. Be carefull to remove only the rivet heads and then punch out the shaft. Save the reflectors should you wish to replace later by installing new rivets. As Demon mentioned, you can also grind the heads off if saving the bracket is not a concern.

Thanks guys, I figured as such. Rivets are a pain for such a little piece.

Also, on a somewhat unrelated note, has anyone found anything better than the plastic screw clips used to hold the front 'V' fairing to the side fairings? Man those things suck...
