Another thought on this... I started to remove mine, but instead cut some black heat shrink tubing of the appropriate length, slipped it over the silver rods and shrunk it to hold it in place. It blends in nicely so that you no longer see the silver rods through the top of the windshield and is super easy to remove the heat shrink if needed (just run a razor blade down the heat shrink and pull it off).
I know, I know... think of all the weight I would be saving if I removed them!
