Fender foam

I have a 2012 wide Glide and will ride mostly with the stock seat without the brick on the rear fender. There are four square foam pads that sit on the fender for protection when using either the stock brick or a two up seat (that was required by the wife). Question is what happens if I remove these, will the two up seat rub on the fender? I am going to get the bra/fender cover when solo seat is on to cover the fender, but need to remove the foam pads. Looking for input.

Remove them with a hair dryer or something that can get the glue nice and hot and they will peel right off.
Next, when that glue is still hot, as soon as u get one off place them directly on the 2-up portion of the seat where they were when they were on the fender. Since they will be on the seat it will fix ur problem.

When I removed my side reflectors from my forks, and my fuel tank emblem, I used a thin string and sawed back and forth as in dental flossing. Then used goo remover on the adhesive that remained.

I took a hair dryer and heated up the foam. Worked perfectly. I glued them onto the two up seat before the glue cooled off. Thanks for the suggestion, see, this forum is valuable even for the common sense things we all don't think of.
