    Hi, no big deal, it's there to protect the paint. If/when the seat base rubs on the fender. :)

    It's up to you. I would warm it it with a hair dryer first. Makes removal easier.
    There is another thread about this same thing. If there is any residue left after removal, use some Zippo lighter fluid to get rid of it. It's kind to paint and leaves no sticky mess.
    If you want to put it back on later and it will not stick, use 2 or 3 layers of Fablon type film as a substitute.

    I took my pillion seat and luggage rack off and discovered one of those wonderful plastic thingies too. I got mine off by using a hair dryer to warm it up and then s-l-o-w-l-y pulling it off. If you have a few extra afternoons with absolutely nothing else to do it is well worth it.

    However, if you ever put your pillion seat back on be sure to put some kind of protector under it. That plastic sheet really does protect the paint.
