I bought one of those gel tank protectors and thought clear was going to look the best. I put it on per instructions, but still ended up with a bunch of small air bubbles, and it looks like crap. Will the heat of the sun make them go away? And I guess if they are there to stay, I might just take it off and go to something with a pattern in it....Which brings up the question, how do you get them off?
I put on one of those kawasaki versys clear protectors and despite best efforts still had some air bubbles. Fortunately when I ordered they made a mistake and sent me 2. Took first one off - a little heat helps to peel it off and then used alcohol cleaner. Second effort much better but still not perfect. Easier to put coloured tank protector on.

I put 3M 'rockguard' stuff on my tank. First you put a little soapy water on, then get the stuff in place, then "squeegee" the excess out with a credit card. For the few bubbles I had, I 'pop' them with a needle, then squeegee again.
