Ok so what is the adhesive to use? Also if I heat up the guards will they be more flexible when I try to install them?

Unfortunately not.
Some had problems getting the adhesive to stick well, fuel seeping threw the tanks makes finding a good way to mount them problematic.
I am in business to offer outstanding lighting solutions and soon to be other ADV bike products, I can't have an adhesive issue ruin a name we worked hard on for 11 years to build.
We could do a redesign, but honestly the #s just are not there to justify that.

Ok I have a set of these and have tried several different adhesives. I tried a 3m liquid emblem adhesive and worked ok left side is still on. Right side I found a different adhesive and it seams to be holding well. Actually I'm impressed because the panel didn't fit flush on the tank when I mixed it up applied it and taped the panels on. when I pulled the tape off the carbon panel stayed curved to the contour of the tank.
