I found that brand new ones do not fit. You can push them in, but they pop right back out. So I carefully sanded them down so they don't pop out, and used some Permatex #2 on them. I doubt it will be possible to get them off without breaking them, but I don't see any reason to ever remove them. I tried the silicone, but is is slippery before it dries, and made the covers pop right off, even after I sanded them down to where they didn't pop off dry.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
